Why did you choose the Business Management program?

I decided to pursue a degree in Business Management to maximize the opportunity to be gainfully employed and become a successful entrepreneur. Growing up, I had the dream of owning and operating a small business. This program is very comprehensive and includes all the necessary training and leadership experiences to help me make that dream possible.

What are you learning about your career field that you find interesting or rewarding?

The courses I took helped me understand how to effectively navigate through difficult situations and find the most optimal solutions to everyday challenges. I am learning the skills necessary to improve my personal and professional life as well as how to become a better communicator, which is by far one of the most important skills to have in business today.

Why did you choose Fox Valley Technical College?

Fox Valley Technical College provides great instructors and convenient locations with exceptional facilities that are on par with, and in most cases above, those of other local and state colleges. I’m able to obtain an education at a cost-effective rate. When I am at FVTC, I feel at home. The Diversity and Inclusion Services Department is very helpful; they are always there for me when I have any questions. The instructors are very knowledgeable, have real-life experiences and provide the ultimate classroom atmosphere to facilitate learning.

How did Fox Valley Technical College help you change your life?

Education changes life, and FVTC has allowed me to tap into my potential and explore opportunities that I never thought I would be able to. I’m more confident and even more successful in my life because of the skills I have acquired at FVTC.

What type of job do you expect to find after graduation?

I am currently working at a local credit union. I plan to use the skills I gain at FVTC to advance within the company and work toward a leadership position. I also plan to continue pursing my dream of owning a small business.
