Completing my degree from Upper Iowa has helped me develop a skill set and degree that is invaluable. My education has already provided me with many opportunities that otherwise wouldn’t have been available to me. I know that my education will help accelerate my career and better my life in ways I only imagined. Upon graduation, I will be working for an Aerospace company in their Financial Leadership Program. I am very excited for this opportunity and for the opportunity to go back to school and complete a degree that will forever change my life.
