MS in Integrated Marketing Communications candidate Danielle Anderson is projected to complete her degree by December 2016. Anderson, a Chicago native, is no stranger to hard work. She spends her weekdays working as a marketing coordinator for the Edward S. Ageno School of Business, her weekends as a part-time employee with a Bay Area sports team and her nights in a GGU classroom. When asked the infamous question, “Why GGU?” she responded with the following:
After joining the GGU community as a full-time employee, I realized that pursuing an education at this institution didn’t just mean a lot of reading. It meant learning from an experienced professional who was ready to give back. The campus location also (San Francisco’s Financial District) also made it easy for me to commute from the East Bay. – Danielle Anderson
Many of our programs are available in person and/or online providing students with flexible scheduling. If a student decides to pursue an online education, their course experience will include creative media usage to ensure students receive an experience parallel to those on campus. Anderson stressed the importance of a central location; but, also expressed her need for online courses. “My schedule can get hectic. If online courses weren’t available, I would not be able to complete an MS degree with my schedule in less than 2 years.”
