“I was 40+ years young with a family and I was working full time, but the bachelor’s program turned out to be a great fit for me. The flexibility of online education allowed me to continue to live my daily life, work and even travel without falling behind.

I was a little unclear about my direction after graduation. But, I remembered what my program director said after I had completed my project for my capstone. My project involved creating a business plan and he said it was so great; I should explore the idea of pursuing it. So, that’s just what I did!
