"My time spent at CGU was invaluable. Often I sit back and think about how far I've come in my career just years after graduating from the program. The HR/OB dual Master's degree provided me with the tools necessary to launch a successful career in HR/OD. I now work for a Diabetes medical device company, Medtronic MiniMed, and am fulfilled in changing patient's and employee's lives everyday." ~Jody Kierman

"I secured a new position with the Jet Propulsion Laboratory in Pasadena … The HRD program at CGU was an integral part of me being able to move forward in my HR career. It was commented during my interviewing process with JPL that they were looking for someone with my educational background for their organization." ~Melissa DeLaCruz
"I moved down here 3 years ago with no experience and just ideas. Looking back at the field placement class that first summer, I would have never guessed I would be sitting where I am now as an Employee Relations Manager at Coke." ~Kimi Nishio
