JOAN GAFFNEY: My favorite class in the program was the Capstone class, which was Business Policy. For me, it really accomplished in reinforcing why you needed to take all of the different aspects of business through the core curriculum of the program. It brought it all together. And it's really helped for me to better understand how I'd like to move forward professionally.
PAUL MBOH: I have a lot direct reports that I'm responsible for in my work. And one of the courses was in organizational behavior. And I was able to apply what we're learning in class to my work environment.
Let me also say is that my boss also noticed some changes in me and my work environment, OK? And so it wasn't just me applying it, it was also very evident to my supervisor that at least I was getting something out of this program.
BRIAN HLOSTE: Each class gave me a sliver of something that I'm going to use. I'm going to put it into my little toolbox, and then later pull that out.
So when I took a class on Management Information Systems I learned about associating your business processes. Understanding what those are as they tie in to your deliverables and then layering that automation system into it. Not just going and buying something off the shelf without an understanding of how your business works. So I take that from that class.
From the Ethics class I take various components out of that and I put that into my back in the head, I'm going to pull this out one day because this is a very important concept. Same thing with the class on Supply Chain Management. I really can't say I had a favorite class. I really liked them all.
