As a working mom of 3 children married to a husband with a rigorous work/travel schedule, the thing I enjoyed most about the course was the ability to operate autonomously/asynchronously. This was challenging at times for team projects when we all needed to have availability at the same time for brainstorming/discussion, but I was still able to work through it. I also thought each of my courses did a great job academically pushing me, while also providing me with material that was entirely relevant to my field. All-in-all, I very much enjoyed every aspect of this program!
