Master of Business Administration

Why did you choose Walden University?

A few of my coworkers within the federal government obtained their degrees from Walden University, and when I asked around for a reputable school to continue my education, Walden was the unanimous choice. I wanted an environment where the staff are supportive and the professors are engaging and flexible.

What have you learned about yourself so far in your academic journey?

I’ve learned that I can do anything I put my mind too. You hear that often, but when I am sitting at the computer, and it’s just me and my thoughts, I am amazed how focused I can be on any task.

Des recently completed hisBachelor of Science in Communications at Walden and started his Master of Business Administration.
