"I have evolved significantly from where I was before starting this program. This time last year, I was a confused and scared kid that was afraid to take a step in any direction. Now I have just completed a summer internship in global supply chain with Burton Snowboards. The activities that I completed in this internship directly correlated to the coursework that I had in the online program. Now I am in the process of being promoted internally to a Global Supply Chain Specialist. SOEREN BRYNN M.S. IN SUPPLY CHAIN MANAGEMENT & ANALYTICS
