The Online MHRM program is great for anyone looking to attain their degree on a flexible schedule.  Because of this, the program promotes work-life balance and students are able to schedule their time efficiently. The classes and the professors are organized in a manner in which students can complete assignments and review course material within a respectable time frame. Lastly, because of the size of the classes, professors are able to connect with their students in a timely manner. This program worked best for me because I worked full time and I was not able to travel to on-campus; however I was still able to gain connections and complete my degree in the best way possible, for me.

I've also learned how to create a DE&I toolkit, design a recruitment plan and implement talent development strategies. I've also built a network of HR professionals that I can rely on.

I look forward to graduation day and continuing to use the knowledge I've gained at Rutgers University in my career.
