I was referred to Herzing by a friend, and from my first call to the end of my enrollment, the process was very smooth and stress-free. The staff was not only patient but very helpful during my time here. I’d like to thank Erin, Candy and Lyndsey for their help in particular. All of them were great help with questions I had and answered my emails promptly!
As soon as I heard about Human Resources, I instantly fell in love with the career. The 8-week completion of classes with small breaks in between made this MBA journey go by very quickly, and I loved the pace of the courses. Speaking of which, My Business Law and Human Resources courses were specifically valuable in preparing me for my career because a lot of what I learned I am now implementing at my current employer.
After taking a year off after graduating from my undergraduate program, I thought I would not acclimate quickly toward being a student again, but Herzing made it easy for me. I was surprised how quickly I became adjusted to student life again, despite all the challenges it entails.
I faced two challenges while earning my degree, the first one is accepting a new job position. Beginning a new position can be very challenging and stressful, especially as an HR professional. The second challenge was my mom unexpectedly being admitted to ICU during finals week. Thankfully, I overcame these challenges with my professors who were very understanding and worked with me during these difficult times. The support of not just my family but also my professors is what helped me overcome these challenges, and I’ll never forget that.
Above all, my strength and efforts of wanting to complete my MBA encouraged me to graduate most. My dream is to one day become the greatest Chief Human Resources Officer I can. After graduation, I will be getting promoted to a management position and couldn’t be more excited to be one step closer to my dream!
My advice for other students pursuing a degree in my field is to be patient because hard work truly pays off. There will be courses that will appear harder than others, but everything is possible if the effort is put in. If you have the love and passion for this field, you will not regret the time put into pursuing this career.
