Student Success Stories

Testimonials from current students and graduates
Our students are passionate about their experience at Brandeis. Students feel that the most important benefits of being an MSPPM student include:

  • Learning to develop innovative methodologies and explore new theories
  • Gaining the knowledge and skills that will help them advance in their professional careers
  • Learning and discussing best practices with faculty members and fellow students
  • Gaining a sense of community among peers and striving to achieve similar goals.

Here is what some our students have to say about our courses:

“The online project management program at Brandeis has provided me significant insight into project management processes and helped develop my leadership skills. Even before I graduated, I was able to apply the principles I learned in the program to enhance my skills at work, while also allowing me to contribute more effectively to my organization’s overall goals and vision. Additionally, the program helped make me more confident about taking the PMP exam and in my ability to lead and contribute to projects.”

~ Nicole Kirkpatrick, Class of 2018, Production Planner for Scientific Drilling International

“This course has already helped me at work. I now have an awareness of the practices of great leadership… It has been like someone turned on a light switch, and I could really see what was happening.”

~ Mike DeFuria, student in the Organizational Leadership and Decision Making course

“Instructors start a discussion and effectively cause students to think ‘outside the box’ to address key road blocks, which builds further understanding of management concepts.”

~ Dee Dung, student in the Professional Communications, Foundations of Project Management, and Organizational Leadership and Decision Making courses

“During the course, we formed teams that were very much like real virtual teams that we would normally have in real life. I now have many takeaways from the course and a list of best practices that I can use in a real setting.”

~ Ed Shehab, student in the Foundations of Virtual Team Management across Cultures and Geographies course

“When I signed up for this class, I was wondering how an online Communication class would be and I have to say it went very well. With the changes in today’s work environment, so much communication is done remotely, so it makes even more sense to take the class online.”

~ Kevin O’Keefe, student in the Professional Communications course

A Senior Vice President from EMC had this to say about our programs:
“Continuous learning at EMC is a fundamental part of our culture. Brandeis University continues to understand our needs and develop curricula to match. Brandeis is a great corporate partner.”

~ Senior Vice President, EMC
