    “This program offered a great deal of hands-on experience as well as relevant research. I have so far never experienced any course with such a high transfer rate to my daily work life. Finally, the flexibility offered by an asynchronous format, as well as the helpful staff and faculty, made it the perfect choice for me as a European student without prior experience with the US educational system.”

    “The challenging coursework helped me broaden my knowledge and gain competency through application. The program armed me with tools and theoretical knowledge to think and practice in new ways allowing me to not only add value but also do what was right for the client. This was in parallel with real-world projects and interaction with clients that supported meaningful application and synthesis as opposed to artificial examples and rote memorization.”
