My coursework has recently helped me get a new job as chief information officer at a school district in Indiana.
I was surprised by how well organized the program is. The lectures and discussions are all timed out. If you’re hardworking and follow the program, you can graduate at the expected time.
I loved the flexibility of Walden. I was able to work my assignments into my schedule.
