Listeners may be in a position where more formal education can give them the tools to assist their agency reach their goals.  Perhaps you are an experienced project manager and you may not want to be forced into an M.B.A. program with too much focus on small business.  The Master’s in Technology Management Program offered through the School of Continuing Studies from Georgetown University may be  one of your options.

Jesuit Universities have always stressed an ethical component of education.  During the interview Meredith reflects on the incorporation of ethics into every course and how it is timely given the headline news.

Sellers’ story should resonate with listeners. At the impressionable age of seventeen he entered the Navy.  Six years later he emerged as mature young man seeking to get an education. He managed to get one bachelor’s degree and four master’s degrees.  Sellers describes some of the diverse students he has worked with in the program.
