In 2018, I completed my master’s in International Business and Entrepreneurship. Even though I am from the U.S., I decided that the best course of action for such a degree was to obtain it overseas, so I chose the University of Essex in the United Kingdom. I was enthusiastic to have made that choice, because no two professors were from the same country, which meant I received a plethora of business education from different countries and cultures.
My program touched a lot on the world of project management, and the more it did, the more I became captivated by it and eventually chose it as my career path. Much of this has to do with my few short years in various teaching and instructor roles, where I discovered that I enjoyed taking on the role of a facilitator in helping to guide a group of people or, a project, to completion.
My undergraduate political science degree focused on international affairs and politics, so matching it with my master’s program, I am eager to focus my education and career on project management that is international in nature.
