Program: MS in Facility Management
Employer: Roma Tile Company, LLC
Resides: Newton, MA
Why did you decide to return to school?
I work for a small company, Roma Tile, and I have had the opportunity to wear many hats so to speak, including work with design, marketing, our web site, and even training new employees. Through these experiences I became more interested in gaining advanced management skills to combine with my undergraduate background in interior design.
What do you find appealing about the facility management field?
In this unstable economy, it’s becoming more difficult to build a career in interior design, my undergraduate major. Several people mentioned to me that the facility management field is very strong and is complementary to my interior design background. As I looked into it more I found the field to be appealing and decided to pursue facility management as a profession.
Has the master’s program been difficult for you not having a facility management background?
The faculty and my fellow classmates at Wentworth have been wonderful and very supportive! My classmates really appreciate the unique perspective I am able to bring from my interior design background.
Would you recommend the MS in facility management program to others?
I would highly recommend Wentworth! The program does a great job of meeting the needs of students, preparing us with the skills that the profession most desires.
