“…Every challenge — every adversity — contains within it the seeds of opportunity and growth.”
- Roy T. Bennett, Author of The Light in the Heart
I have been thinking quite a lot about this quote while continuing to serve you from my virtual office. The world around us changed almost overnight. Many of you may be listening to a steady drumbeat of negative news about the economy and our industries and wondering if you are ready to face these challenges. Perhaps now is the time to seize the opportunity to expand your educational growth with a Master’s degree from HRM. A Master’s degree provides you the time to gain new skills which will help you stand out in the marketplace. In a short time, you will gain advanced skills which will put you in a position to gain the top jobs in our reshaped industries upon graduation with your Master’s. Take a moment to consider how bright your future will be after facing the present challenges and grasping the opportunity for growth with an HRM Master’s degree. Reach out to our Graduate Program, RHIM and Retail Coordinators, or myself to discuss your opportunities. You will find links to each of us enclosed in this newsletter, along with tips; testimonials, special programs and scholarship opportunities, program information, and more. We are looking forward to hearing from you.
