If experience has taught me anything, it is that nothing has more value than continued learning. My field is highly competitive, increasingly digitized, and ever-changing. Continued knowledge growth is required to compete. Thankfully, through my experience with the MBA program, what I have learned has far surpassed my expectations. ” - Mary Susan Murphy
