I was very excited when I got accepted into the DM program. I didn’t know what to expect when I first came to the DM program, my emotions went back and forth from angst to anticipation. Based on my conversations with previous students I only got positive feedback about the DM program which is true based on my experience over the last three years.

First I was amazed at the amount of intellectual capital and power the program provided me, in terms of the instructors and classroom content. I really enjoyed learning under such wonderful professors who are thought leaders in their respective field. In addition, I was pleased that every professor was able to disseminate the course content in a very academic and intellectual, yet practical way; that I was able to understand and apply on daily basis within my field of work.  Last every class was thought provoking and challenged the way I viewed issues pertaining to the course.

Second I really enjoy the time with my cohorts, each one brought a wealth of life experiences and intellect that has broaden my perspective from a world view. We have grown into a quasi family.  I always looked forward to the residencies to catch up with my classmates and discussing the trials and tribulations of the homework assignments.

Lastly, after three years I have come to realize that the DM experience does not end, but continues after long graduation considering the wealth of knowledge and relationships I’ve gain from the DM program.
