As a full time employee, it was difficult to find a school that could help me to reach my goal in obtaining my bachelor's degree. Northeastern offered me the chance of pursuing my education goals while having a full time job in during the day. The flexibility that Northeastern offers on their classes schedules was the key for me to be able to graduate this year.Kennya Cabrera Bachelor of Science in Healthcare Administration, 2019
