  In the spring of 2006, I applied to the traditional master’s program at Purdue University to pursue a degree in agricultural economics. I had been accepted and was preparing to move to campus in West Lafayette, Indiana, when I received a job offer from a company that I highly respected and had always wanted to work for. Knowing that I couldn’t do both, I was torn between the two opportunities. In the end, I decided to take the job.

I cried when I informed Purdue about my decision, and I vowed that I would earn a graduate degree in the near future. After two years at the company, I started looking for an online program that suited my ambitions. I was very surprised to discover Purdue’s online program—one that would allow me to gain not only an MS degree in agricultural economics, but also an MBA from Indiana University. I began the program in August 2009 with the hopes that I would receive tuition reimbursement from my current employer, but when that didn’t work out, I started looking at other employment opportunities closer to my family in Peoria, Illinois.

I began sending out résumés and was surprised to find that my work history combined with the MS-MBA garnered so much attention from interested employers. Soon my phone began to ring off the hook with potential employers that were impressed with the graduate education I was getting and what a strong set of business tools that I could bring to their organizations. I recently accepted a position in Morton, Illinois, with Caterpillar Logistics Services as a senior inventory analyst. For the remainder of the summer, I’ll also be working at a part-time internship with the Illinois Farm Bureau. Both of these positions came as a result of the impressive Purdue University and IU Kelley School of Business credentials and because of the encouragement from Purdue and IU’s faculty and staff and from my MS-MBA cohort. I feel very fortunate to have made connections that will help me for the rest of my life, and I know that these connections will greatly enhance my career.
