Alumni Spotlight: Angela Bryant
Argosy University, Online Programs alumnus Angela Bryant spent 10 years in the corporate world, working her way up to a Customer Operations Manager II before deciding that earning a Master of Business Administration (MBA) degree could help her reach the next level.
Her long-term goal was to join the senior leadership team, and completing an advanced degree became an important part of her strategy to achieve that rank.
At the time she chose to return to school, Angela already had a busy schedule between work and family, and Argosy University’s online MBA program sounded like a great fit for her hectic life. “Argosy University offered me the flexibility to get my MBA while keeping a full-time career, a family of four, and a busy social circle going all at once,” Angela explains. “It was really flexible and provided me an opportunity to challenge myself and keep things interesting. Today, my business skills are stronger and my ability to manage a busy life is even greater than before.”
Within months of completing her MBA at Argosy University in 2013, Angela found an exciting new career opportunity with a large corporation. She says, “I made a big change and left the manager role I had held at my previous employer for a new opportunity with amazing growth potential. The organization I work for today offers leadership roles and various new opportunities for me. My MBA really helped me get in the door.”
Angela’s advice for students considering going back to school? “Jump in and do it!” She says, “It may be hard at first but a school like Argosy can give you flexibility to find the work pattern and timing that works for you. When those years are over and you have your schooling behind you and a bright future ahead, you’ll be so glad you did it. Don’t wait; get moving toward your future! I’m glad I did!”
