My UB experience with IDEAL has allowed me to achieve certain goals in my life. I always wanted to earn my bachelor’s degree so I could apply my skills at a higher level of management in my company. After being a manager at a former company I wanted to explore other job opportunities and I came to realize that many companies did not hire unless you had a four-year degree. This encouraged me to go back to school and the IDEAL program was the best thing that happened to me. The IDEAL program allows me to balance both my work and personal life. The classes are fantastic and the professors are willing to work with you.
As I am enrolled in the IDEAL Program the faculty and advisors really encourage and guide me. Through each semester they ensure that I am taking the necessary classes for the degree I am pursuing. My family also supports me a great deal as they encourage me to do well in all my classes."
