Goodwin's ENet program has been a relevant source of confidence for me surrounding the changing world of business. As a student, I thrived in the classroom, and I loved it.

This will be my third attempt at entrepreneurial endeavors since being home. What is different this time is that Goodwin University has provided me with a higher level of business knowledge and flexibility of thought. Attending the ENet program flattened the learning curve and expanded my vision by leveling the playing field.

I found all of the professors very open and friendly. They made us feel comfortable, which marks the type of educators Goodwin University has working for them.

Another reason this group of professors stood out was their instruction method — they taught outside the box. Today, nothing, if anything at all, is like it used to be, and they provided us with what today's world requires and calls for when preparing entrepreneurs.

Since my release, I have completed several programs, and nothing compares to the chances and opportunities that the ENet program and Goodwin have provided for me. The ENet program gave me the greatest opportunity to succeed in life, and provided me with the tools and support I needed to navigate the return to society and to prosper, not just exist.

Goodwin's ENet program has helped me to be more conscious in making better executive decisions. As a first-generation graduate with a non-profit reentry start-up, it's helpful that when I am stuck business-wise, I am still able to contact my ENet professors.

Osvaldo "OB", ENet graduate

When I started the program, I knew I had potential, but I didn't know how much potential.

The whole ENet atmosphere was a community, it was a like a family. Everyone had their own angle, their own style, their own thing they brought, and they all had something I needed.

Goodwin has provided the necessary structure in an uncertain time.

This program created an avenue to generate alternative streams of income, and I am grateful for the opportunity to channel my energy constructively.

The professors were extremely engaged and have been instrumental throughout the whole process. They are not only great teachers, but great mentors as well. When there were points that seemed like you wanted to quit, they encouraged, empowered, and guided.
