  When I entered the program I didn't have confidence that I was making a wise investment. Would the coursework be applicable? Would the distance delivery work for me? Would I get a return on my investment? Would the program contribute to enhancing my future career opportunities?

Five years later I can answer affirmatively to all of these questions. I use my education all day, every day. My career has accelerated. The relationships I developed with my classmates and the staff and faculty at Purdue are intact today. I can't imagine where I would be today without my degree from Purdue.

As a human resources professional, I recommend this program to employees in my company wishing to continue their education and to anyone else for that matter. The Purdue-Kelley MS-MBA is a top notch program that contributes to creating top notch professionals.
