The STB program is very challenging, which is what I liked most about it. The professors were helpful and understanding of our dynamic lives while keeping a high level of expectation. Everybody was very helpful whenever I reached out. All of the program content was highly relevant to my career in the seed industry; I could relate all of it to things I do at Bayer. There has not been a topic covered in any class that I have not been able to relate to my work. That is very exciting to me.
My fellow online students came from a variety of backgrounds, which tells me this program can fit various learning needs, and give people the right tools to be leaders in our industry. Completing the STB graduate program was the best decision I could have made in order to advance my professional education and I would highly recommend the program to anyone who is building a career in the seed industry.
Now that I have my master’s degree, I hope to continue being part of an international organization and look into taking on more responsibilities down the road. The MS degree definitely qualifies me to achieve those goals.
