I believe that what I learned in the Construction Administration program and the connections I was able to make will help me in my long-term goal of helping develop my home country, Haiti. The evening classes and flexibility of the instructors in the program made it very manageable to balance working full time while enrolled in the program.”
My entire cohort in the M.S. in Nonprofit Management program was working full-time during our graduate studies. The program's unique flexibility and faculty support made it really easy to balance work, life, and school. I was able to enhance my professional leadership skills and directly implement my learnings from the classroom into my everyday work.”
A big part of my getting the Associate Director of Facilities role was because of my participation in the M.S. in Construction Administration. The program experience was amazing. I learned the skills to effectively manage people and all aspects of large construction projects in New York City.”
