Michigan State University Online student Carlos Jimenez said working with professionals at MSU has helped him to understand the intracy of today's hospitality management industry. Jimenez received his Masters Certificate in Management of Business in Hospitality in March of 2014.
Before I registered for the program, I was bit worried about online certifications. In the past I heard bad comments about how it is not the same as being in a classroom with one-on-one interaction with a professor. I did my research here in Canada and various USA schools, and the MSU program was a very complete and focused in the area where I wanted to gain experience.
The program was very detailed and focused on the hospitality and service industry. My program representative, Sean Rogers, gave me a call and was very personal. He explained everything to me and gave me a lot of confidence to enroll in the program.
Yes! Sean Rodgers made everything easy for me, even for the payment options. It was easy to enroll.
I would say gaining a lot of knowledge and feedback from professionals in the industry with a lot of cases and group discussions, which definitely helped to understand a lot of what’s happening today in the industry where I work.
Just do it! Sometimes you have to invest in yourself to move up the ladder in your organization. This program is great for professionals. You could do it on your own terms and schedule.
Yes! I will keep gaining credentials and knowledge in the area of hospitality.
The flexibility for professionals who are currently working, the content of the material is great and also you have a once-a-week group discussion which actually is recorded if you can’t attend.
A lot since then I received better opportunities within my organization.
