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.

Given my goals and plans to coach or work as a general manager for the NFL, the MSOL program seemed like a perfect fit. Not a lot of schools offer organizational leadership programs, especially not in a hybrid or online format. The Goodwin program set itself apart by being so flexible. Classes were 6-7 weeks long, which was great for my schedule. In the MSOL program, I learned to go beyond the assignment itself and meld facts with ideals. Learning that changed my approach to leadership because I realized it can’t just be about looking like I'm doing all the right things — the reality has to be there, too. That kickstarted my brain. I feel like the MSOL program prepared me to go wherever I decide to. It prepared me to succeed as a leader.

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.

Not only does an MSOL look great on a resumé, but the degree is broad enough to take you anywhere. The program teaches students how to become emotionally and culturally competent, and you learn how to help, leverage, and inspire others. Earning your MSOL is about learning how to get to know people, motivate them, and lead them — ensuring the success of any organization. The lessons you learn in the MSOL program have lifelong applicability. If you lack confidence and self-identity, learning who you are through the MSOL program can help you change the narrative from what you don’t have to what you do. You can gain the confidence to put yourself out there.

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.

One of the most valuable things I came to understand is what leadership really is. Great leaders make leaders. You need to be able to pass things forward and ensure there are individuals who can grab a hold of the vision and keep persisting forward with it. In the MSOL program, we had a cohort of individuals coming from varying backgrounds, sharing different opinions, and still being respected. That was another valuable thing I learned — it’s okay to have conversations in which people disagree. We all have egos, but when we learn to set our pride aside, we can have the kinds of conversations that break barriers.
