What or who encouraged you to enroll in the program?
I’ve always wanted to obtain my master’s degree. When I heard about the RU program I was happy to know that I could concentrate on a degree related to real estate. Throughout my career I have the opportunity to take courses in all aspects of the real estate field except management. I see myself in real estate or association management in my future and thought that it would greatly benefit my career path to have this degree.
What was your favorite thing about the program?
I truly enjoyed the program because I was able to do the course work at my own pace, yet I felt very involved and enjoyed the classroom environment through the required discussion posts.
How has this program helped you professionally?
While at this stage in my career I am not ready to take the step into management, I know that when I am actively looking for a position, my Association Management Master’s degree will provide me with the education and confidence to make that career change.
