I started connecting real life experiences in my work with what I was learning in class. The faculty taught me how to analyze situations and effectively navigate interactions with clients."

Kyle Brisson, MST

Your instructors may be working in the very roles and organizations you hope to be in one day, which creates an outstanding networking match. When it comes time to secure a job after graduation, you can leverage the network you have built while at Walsh to help land your next professional opportunity.

3. Flexibility

An early pioneer in online education, Walsh has been offering flexible online education since 1998. You can choose from 100% online, in person, and remote synchronous in dynamic connected classrooms, aligning your education with your schedule and learning styles.

Even if you never set foot on campus, Walsh provides hands-on learning experiences to build in-demand skills through capstone projects and simulations. You will connect with faculty and classmates in small class settings and participate in engaging, relevant curriculum that prepares you to succeed in any business environment.

The technology we use allows us to modify our hands-on learning exercises for a remote format. Students collaborate via voice and screen shares to practice skills they will use in the workplace, and I log in to interact and offer guidance, just as I would in our on ground Cyber Lab.” 

Dave Schippers, DSc, CISSP, chair and associate professor, IT/Decision Sciences

Year-round enrollment and registration means you don’t have to wait until the traditional start of the school year to begin working toward your degree and can plan your academic year in advance. Four 11-week semesters also allow you to move through your program quicker and with less down time.

4. Personal Attention and Support

With small class sizes and engaged professors, Walsh offers a tailor-made, personalized educational experience. You will enjoy direct access to responsive faculty and academic advisors who can help you set educational goals, troubleshoot challenges, make important professional connections, and network with other students.
