"I was amazed at the Graham School's ability to cater to a breadth of project management professionals. With over five years of experience, my biggest concern was finding a course too entry-level. However, I am pleased to say that was never the case, as the instructors find ways to challenge everyone. Within the Project Management Strategy program, one learns just as much from fellow classmates as you will the instructors. By teaming with project managers of unique industries and backgrounds, I gained a better knowledge for how particular strategies could be utilized to ensure project success. After sharpening my skills at the Graham School, I'm thrilled to announce that I've been promoted to Manager of Project Management at my firm, only a few months after receiving my certificate!"
