I chose to pursue a certificate before I bridged into the Master of Administration in Leadership program to balance the professional goals I had and to give me the opportunity to dip my toes in to see if the Master of Administration program was right for me.

One of the key things the program gave me is confidence and the ability to challenge the way to look at big, broad problems.
