How HPU helped you get there: “HPU’s five-year program has afforded me a smooth transition into a Master’s program and, more importantly, has equipped me with the necessary skills and knowledge to secure a job with an established and upcoming firm in my field. I look forward to utilizing the skills that I have attained at HPU to further my professional career.”
Most impactful moment from HPU: “One of the most impactful memories I have had at High Point University was in a speech given by President Nido Qubein during his senior seminar class. He told us that we could do anything if we put our minds to it. His words gave me a sense of confidence to meet challenges, take risks and to make a difference no matter how big or small. I have taken these words and put them into action as I have successfully completed my master’s program and look to make a difference in the business realm. His teachings have made a profound impression on me and inspired me to pursue my professional aspirations.”
