"This management degree has helped me fast forward my career as far as aiming for a higher position within the firm and more management responsibilities," said Benedict. "Right now I have a pretty medium-sized team and this MBA has taught me how to deal with large teams – and hopefully I'll put what I've learned into practice."

Benedict credits Ashford's convenient online platform for allowing him to earn his graduate degree without sacrificing his fast-paced career or family commitments. "Earning a degree online was a very new experience for me, but then once I got used to it, it was very easy for me to traverse through the whole course."

Additionally, Ashford's mobile platform contributed to Benedict's success. "Their app, which is very user-friendly, has helped me to post my assignments, my weekly discussions – all those forums are very helpful."

Benedict feels empowered to apply the knowledge from his Ashford MBA toward his current career while continuing to work his way up the ladder. "It's a pretty interesting experience learning information technology from a management standpoint, so it was a fruitful experience which I think will help me in my career."

The Ashford University Outstanding Alum of the Week recognition was created to spotlight Ashford success stories and graduates who have used their Ashford education as a springboard to personal and professional achievement.
