Ohio University MHA online
“I would like to take this opportunity to thank Ohio University and its staff for the excellent education I received. Many people, including myself, think very carefully about the expenditures/return ratio when choosing an advanced degree. I considered an MBA; however, I can see employment trends that exhibit a bias toward layoff. I wanted to keep my core technical competencies for marketability and salary considerations. The results are as follows: I was working for a leading aerospace supplier as a divisional engineer, this degree offered me many opportunities within the organization, I chose to look outside, and the results were a $22,000 pay increase and a chance to work for NASA on the Ares 1 project. Although nothing in life can be guaranteed, many of the students in my cohort experienced similar monetary increases. Along with the monetary increases come choices that include greater freedom and creative satisfaction as a result of the doors that were opened by this program."
