“As an outdoor industry professional looking to grow in my career, this program struck the perfect balance of everything I was looking for. It allowed me the time and financial flexibility I needed while providing me with a valuable curriculum that not only touched on everything from marketing, personal and leadership development, and crucial DEI points, but also dove deep into these matters while connecting everything back to the outdoor industry. I have never had educators or coursework so seamlessly in-tune with the outdoor industry specifically, and this was everything to me. What I especially loved was how introspective some of the course material was, forcing me to look inside myself as an industry professional, a marketer, a leader, and an individual, and evaluate what I found there. I knew I would learn, but never imagined how much I would grow from these courses as an individual. There are teachings and lessons which I will take with me for many years to come as I grow as a professional.”
