MSU Profiles

Class options offer flexibility to ensure success

Minot State University is dedicated to meeting the ever changing needs of today's students. Whether on campus or online, or a blending of both, students pursuing their degrees at MSU can be assured of flexibility and opportunities to succeed. For students like Christian Miller, who recently completed his Master of Science in management, opportunity and flexibility are only part of the equation.

"The facilities are great, however the faculty really make Minot State a desirable destination," Miller said. "Being able to pursue and successfully complete both my undergraduate and master's degrees, I really relied on the flexibility that the online courses afforded me, especially while deployed overseas. My professors were always available and willing to work with me to help me succeed and excel in my classes."

Minot State's MSM degree emphasizes leading-edge management principles and strategies for success in modern organizations. The program prepares working professionals to assume greater management responsibilities. Paired with strong leadership skills and forward vision, Miller found MSU's MSM program perfectly aligned with his determination to make a difference in the world and in the lives of others.

I've always been a leader," Miller said. "I've often played the role of team captain or group leader. Pursuing both an undergraduate degree, and now my master's degree in management just made perfect sense. MSU really helped me succeed in my studies by giving me the necessary tools. MSU made a challenging and rewarding education easy."

Leaders, by definition, are trail blazers and are often the inspiration for others. However, Miller, a Chicago native, who earned Outstanding Student of the Year award, said he was inspired by those around him to persevere.

"Trying to juggle the demands of work and the challenges of school wasn't always easy," Miller said. "But when my fellow airmen would tell me I inspired them, it really meant a lot to me and inspired me to do my best and set a great example. If you had asked me 15 years ago if I envisioned this for my future I would have said no, but I wouldn't change a thing."
