What our students are saying ...

"After being laid off and unable to find employment for six months, I was told by a hiring manager that my experience and desired salary were not obtainable with my incomplete college education. I decided it was time to get my degree. Two weeks before graduation from GFU, I was offered a job in my field. Now, a year and a half later, I've already been promoted."

"I believe the program was good in helping me to develop confidence in what I could do. I would have never thought about a graduate degree program without it. More possibilities became available to me."

"(The) hands-on experience - working on a real life project for a nonprofit in the community - helped me land my job, as well as my (professor's) assistance and recommendations to my employer."

"I appreciated the combining of education with real-world analysis. I feel more able to manage effectively, develop employees, and now use this knowledge serving on two boards of directors. Thank you, GFU."
