I’ve been able to use my classes to analyze and look at what’s happening in real time and do something different than what I would have done without my new knowledge.

Q: Have you found the program flexible as it relates to your current role within the military?

A: Flexible, yes. Once I got past the initial anxiety of not being in school for 14 years everything has been going very smoothly.

A: It’s influenced my decision making processes. I have people’s lives in my hands. The leadership portion specifically has helped me evaluate my approach toward conflict and the betterment of my sailors.
