Thomas Simmons got a degree in Engineering Management to compliment his leadership experience in the U.S. Army.
“A big part of it for me was getting a piece of paper that proves that I know what I’m talking about,” Simmons said. “Now I have something that they’ll believe. I have these skills and I can prove it, I have a master’s from these skills.”
He saw a direct influence on his career after completing his degree as he was promoted to a higher role as a facility manager at his employer because of his new skills acquired through the program.
