Goodwin University msn degree reviews

Robert Hartweck, MSOL graduate

I honestly believe I would not be in my current position without Goodwin University! I am currently the Major Gifts Officer at Logan University in St. Louis, MO. The education I received at Goodwin University gave me the skills and knowledge to succeed in my role. I take those skills and techniques and apply them almost daily. What makes Goodwin University so special and what makes me so grateful for the experience is the incredible faculty. They always went above and beyond and truly wanted me to succeed. You are not just a face, but you are a name! Specifically, the program director, I had never experienced anyone who genuinely cared so much in an educational setting until I met Sandi. From the first day of the program, I knew I was in the right place. I struggled with a lot of imposter syndrome, and the faculty was there every step of the way to ensure that I belonged and would do great things. I applied for my current position towards the end of my time in the program, and the faculty were there to offer me advice. They gave me the confidence to go into my interview, knowing that while I was still be in school, I was the right fit for the position. Here I am! I found an industry that I love and enjoy being a part of every day, and I owe that to Goodwin University for giving me the platform to get here.

The MSOL professors were wonderful, genuine, authentic, and challenged every one of us. They knew our names, got to know us, and asked about our personal and professional goals. They created concepts easy to understand, digest, and put into practice.

I am forever thankful for the valuable skills, knowledge, and confidence I gained from the MSOL program. The program director’s leadership and commitment to all her students, to see us succeed, to teach us to never give up on ourselves, and to help us look within is truly one of the greatest gifts this program offers. My MSOL degree allowed me to reach my career goals. I am currently the Director of Organizational Development at the Department of Children & Families and report directly to the Deputy Commissioner of Administration. I am forever thankful for the opportunity of the MSOL program and hope to make a difference in this world because of those who believed in me, and I plan to pay it forward.

Goodwin helped me fall in love with managing and working with people. During my 13 years working for Goodwin’s facilities department, I had the great pleasure of serving as one of the facilities directors, which provided me with real-world experience in managing and leading people. Through my experience, I learned the importance of motivating, growing, and leading employees so that we all work toward and achieve a shared goal. I also obtained my master’s in Organizational Leadership through Goodwin’s MSOL program. Under the leadership of Sandi Coyne, I was able to learn about my own leadership style and how I can use my skills to lead and grow others. I currently serve as the Chief of Staff for the Town of East Hartford. I love what I do because it has always been my life’s purpose to help my fellow neighbor. This job puts me in a position to influence a resident’s quality of life in a positive manner. I also love the fast pace and complexity of local government operations. Every day presents a new challenge to overcome and an opportunity to learn something new.

The MSOL program is very flexible — I am currently enrolled full-time in the accelerated 7.5-week session in the online-only format. The MSOL professors are always available to help, and they truly make you feel as if they are teaching you in the classroom. The MSOL program has changed my way of professional thinking. The courses have opened my eyes to my strengths and opportunities as a leader.

The MSOL program was more appealing to me than an MBA because what I was learning was applicable to many fields of study. This program provided me with skills that helped me not only succeed, but to help others under my direction grow and succeed.
