Investing in your degree is a smart decision

Michelle Headrick“I always keep an eye on the College of Innovation + Design and I try to register for as many of their courses as possible.

Also, as a business analyst in the IT field, the use cases in our coursework have been very relevant to my work and have helped me develop my skills in key areas essential to today’s IT work – requirements gathering, being agile, and building user stories.

I hope to use this certificate program as a launching pad for further studies in human computer interaction.Michelle Headrick, Junior, Multidisciplinary Studies Major
