Student's Perspective

"The M.S. in Management taught me to manage not just the task, but the people who perform the task. Coincidentally, we were doing some cultural transformation at my organization, and I found that the classes at Nazareth aligned well with the work we were doing. Nowhere else will you learn as much about yourself as a person and as a leader and learn from professors with real-world experience as you will in the M.S. in Management program at Nazareth."

Beth Schroeder '09G, senior manager of laboratory outreach, Rochester General Hospital
