Master of Science, Regulatory Affairs

Three words encapsulate your Northeastern University experience:

Dream | Adventure | Romance

Getting a degree while life is happening isn’t always easy. What are some of the challenges you’ve had to face and how have you overcome them?

One challenge I had to overcome while pursuing my master’s was balancing a full time job in addition to a full course load. Being able to successfully manage my time coupled with my interest in the subject matter and applicability to my career allowed me to be successful in both areas.

“I can do anything I set my mind to.”
