I took five years off between undergrad and graduate school. I was concerned about balancing all things life but SBU's online program made it very easy. I could still go on my honeymoon for almost two weeks while taking a course! As long as you effectively communicate with your professors, anything is possible. The student success coaches also check in and answer questions you might have. The MSL 615 – Human Resources Management course got me thinking about gaps within my organization, so I drafted a Diversity and Inclusion Coordinator job description and sent it to my Human Resources Director to review. Shortly after, the role was created, and I was promoted to it. By the time I graduated, I had received two promotions.
