    Helping you succeed

    Going back to school is a different experience from going to work and doing your job. Your instructor is not your boss. They are experienced professionals who are there to provide information, discuss scenarios, actions and consequences. They encourage you to explore and formulate new ideas, to find fresh options for how to do things in the future. You can implement these ideas and options in your career.

Insights from instructor, Kevin Young, MBA, CPHR

  • Management is dealing with people
    “Management is mostly about dealing with people. The communication, the thought processes all can be taught. An introvert can learn to modify their behavior. I was an introvert and I morphed into an extrovert. You can become better.”

  • You can increase your competitive advantage
    “A university credential and a professional designation are of value and certainly carry some weight as you explore your future career opportunities. You can definitely enhance or increase your competitive advantage.”

  • Learn new ways
    “I encourage students to break through traditions and status quo and learn new ways to think. The variables and possibilities are unlimited. Listen, explore, take new information and look at problems in new ways.”
