The Penn State Great Valley Master of Engineering Management degree has given me the tools to more effectively manage my engineering team. The Master of Leadership Development has challenged me to grow as a leader and understand the difference between managing and leading. I now manage projects and lead people. I am more self-aware and understand the need to lead organizational and social change through authentic transformational leadership. Penn State Great Valley is conveniently located to work and home, has world-class professors, and a diverse, engaged, and professional student body. I have made many contacts and life-long friends at Penn State Great Valley. We Are Penn State!

What I really enjoy about the MLD Program is the fantastic learning environment and the competitive edge that my writing, speaking and presentation skills receive as I go through my classes. There's always something to learn, and I really like the way that the MLD program is a complement my undergraduate work in communication theory. This will be my third Penn State degree, and I'm a very proud Penn Stater!
