Tammy McMullen has worked as a marketing manager in an Ontario casino for the past 15 years, but the life-long learner still wanted to earn a Master of Business Administration Degree.
The degree would allow to her pursue senior level management positions.
However, she had a busy schedule so she waited until her children were older and her career was stable to continue her academic journey.
“An online MBA was a goal I could pursue. Many career advancement opportunities were attainable from my experience, but the educational requirement was not quite there,” Tammy explained.
“The online experience was perfect for me to maximize my efforts and work around an already busy personal schedule.”
She described the faculty as very engaging and employing a number of learning styles to teach the course material.
“UCW has provided a very personal learning experience for my work/life/school balance,” she said.
Now that she’s earned her graduate degree, she going to take a break from studying to weigh her options. Tammy might pursue a project management designation or upgrade her process improvement certification.
All her hard work has paid off.
“Even though it was sometimes difficult to balance everything, the satisfaction from completing this program is a highlight of my life that will benefit me forever, personally and professionally,” Tammy said.
