Pursuing a master's degree in project management at The Citadel was one of the best decisions I’ve made in my academic career. I’ve been working for the DoD for 13 years and my goal was to find my way to the project manager career track. I had no idea how prepared I would be upon graduation. The professors conduct themselves with the upmost professionalism and their shared knowledge base reaches any career path in project management imaginable. I would not have the job I do now without the skillset I learned throughout the program. They manage to teach the curriculum in a way that is current, relatable, and immediately applicable. I can now, without fail, give a 5 minute (on-the-dot) speech over 2 weeks’ worth of work at the drop of a hat!

I was also blown away by my peer group and that only pushed me to work harder. I made lifelong friends, networked with people in my field, and joined an esteemed group of alum. I've never been prouder of myself and that's all because The Citadel gave me a chance.
