"I had my undergraduate degree in international business for just about seven years and I have always wanted to get my master's degree. When I looked at other universities and selected Kaplan [University] for my master's degree, Kaplan [University] gave you the most 'bang for your buck.' I met professors that were actually in the industries that they taught. This was not purely an academic setting. Everything that we do in international business is all about relating to other people and everything we do at Kaplan [University] is about how you relate to other people and how that relation allows you to do better.
I met people who were from China, who were from Japan, who were from the Middle East; I met a gentleman who was a program developer for Microsoft based in Shanghai. I had one of my classmates in Iraq at the time and we would collaborate on different projects while she was in Iraq and I was in the United States.
That's the beauty of Kaplan [University]. We share and we learn from each other and then you can go back to work the next day and apply the same information that you learned in class. I work for the US Small Business Administration. Because I have my Master's Degree from Kaplan [University] I actually was able to obtain the job that I have right now where I'm helping small businesses. Without my master's degree from Kaplan [University] I would not have even been considered for the position so my degree is allowing me to touch people outside of me and allowing them to touch people outside of them so it's almost like paying it forward."
