MBA grad recommends this program to any parent

Posted by Caroline Lanni on August 8, 2022 at 1:52 PM

Tania Raquel Londono-Rivera, '22 received her MBA this past May and her education is not stopping there. She is now currently working as a business manager for a primary care practice in Cape Cod, while also being enrolled in Walden University and starting her first semester online for her doctorate program in Healthcare Administration.

"I'm beyond proud of this achievement. I plan on climbing up the ladder to soon become a CEO or open up my own private care practice. I'm beyond excited for this new journey," said Londono-Rivera.

Fitchburg State has been one of the best universities I have ever attended. It has given me the opportunities to go to school online while being a mom, being a wife, full time worker, and it has been one of the best experiences for me.  I recommend anybody that has children and wants to attend school while working on their own time to go to school. I am so grateful to have been able to graduate this past May. I highly recommend this program to any parent and any person in general," she said.

So you've what?

Posted by Kimberly McCoy-Blauser on December 16, 2021 at 1:34 PM

Ok you've graduated. Now what do you do? Read our helpful hints to get started on your plan!

Continue learning. Take a continuing education class.

Learning shouldn’t stop just because you’re not in school anymore. I think that we always have something to learn so I'm a big fan of lifelong learning. Find something that really interests you and figure out ways to learn more about it.

You can further your studies by taking a short course which is not necessarily part of what you majored in at college. For example, if you were a history major but want to pursue a different field, like business or computer science, taking classes gives you a foundation to begin looking for entry-level jobs in that field.
