My UAS Experience

Being a student at UAS was a rewarding, and fulfilling experience. Because of my passion for business, I decided to work on and complete an Associate of Applied Science, Business Administration Degree. Throughout my classes I learnt the fundamentals of a growing and ever changing business environment, the importance of communications and effective management. It is my intention to continue on to the next milestone and obtain a Bachelor’s degree with a concentration in Management Information Systems.

Having to juggle full time work, two young children and even a business at times, the distance education program was ideal for my situation. There is always something to learn no matter how many years you are in business. It was very enjoyable meeting and interacting with my professors and fellow students, (in some cases from around the world) and collaborating on mutual projects. The smaller size classes are an opportunity to network with other students and work closer with the instructors. The faculty and student advisors made me feel that they genuinely cared and were always available and motivational. My instructors offered words of wisdom and much appreciated “real world” business advice and kindly made themselves available whenever I reached out to them. Many of my instructors have been truly inspirational.

I will be applying the knowledge UAS has taught me, not only in work environments but also in my personal life. It’s been an honor thus far, thank you UAS!
