My UAS Experience

In the summer of 2014, I made the decision to complete my degree in Business Administration with an emphasis in Human Resource Management via the distance education program through University of Alaska Southeast. The school provided the flexibility needed to work part-time, raise a child, as well as obtain an excellent education.

Courses in the school of management foster critical thinking and analytical skills in a challenging and inspiring environment. My professors were passionate and knowledgeable, and helped me gain a deeper understanding of business concepts that I will carry with me throughout my career.  Instructors within the program have done an excellent job relating course material to real-life scenarios. Being enrolled in a distance education program also gave me opportunities to collaborate with peers in virtual teams.

As part of this program, I also had the opportunity to be part of the establishment of the UAS Society for Human Resource Management (SHRM) Student Chapter. UAS provided me with leading-edge skills and foundational knowledge, leaving me well positioned for the next chapter in my life!
