    Networking can be tough in the best of circumstances, but the MS in Human Resource Management program helps you make the connections. Take Kyle Wiley, for example – he was attending one of the MSHRM Saturday seminars where the Chief Human Resources Officer for Webster Bank was making a presentation to the cohort. When he mentioned that there were positions open, Kyle took the opportunity to introduce himself and learn more about the openings. After a few rounds of interviews, he was hired as a HR Business partner, and now after 5 years promoted to a VP position. Kyle is active in the non-profit world as well, serving as a director for the HR Assoc. of Central CT, and a VP of Finance for the Nat’l Assoc. of African Americans in HR.

    In addition to a strong international presence, we also have some homegrown students in our MSBAPM program. Denny Lopez (bottom left) grew up in Stamford and had UConn on his short list for Undergrad – proximity to NYC along with cool local events made his college experience fun and fulfilling! After earning his Economics degree, taking the next step to business analytics and project management felt right – enhancing the quantitative side of Econ and coupling it with an understanding of being able to see a project to a successful completion. Bonus, he just landed a great summer internship at Slalom’s Business Advisory services. Even though it’s located in Westchester, it’s just a short ride away. For his eventual pivot into traditional consulting work, Denny has appreciated the doors MSBAPM has opened for him. We’re excited to see what you’ve got lined up next. If you’re interested in learning more about the unique cross-disciplinary experiences that our MSBAPM program offers, follow the link in our bio and join us at our next infosession: ...
