How do you balance working full-time with earning your bachelor’s degree?

The hybrid design of the project management program fits perfectly with my schedule. I am able to do a good deal of coursework online via Blackboard, which I find to be very enriching. I learn a lot from both my instructors and fellow classmates through the online discussion boards as well as in face-to-face meetings.

Is there a high level of interaction between students in the program?

Absolutely. My classmates and I have become a tight-knit group---we share a common bond as working adults and motivate each other to succeed. I also find that my classmates are a great resource to exchange ideas that are of benefit professionally.

What advice would you give to a student considering Wentworth?

Returning to school at Wentworth was one of the best decisions I’ve ever made, and I would encourage others to do the same. However, I would also advise them to be ready to commit to working hard. Wentworth designs its programs to be flexible for adults, but you have to take it seriously to succeed.
