OZGUR EKMEKCI: For those who are thinking about joining the program but have concerns around time management or flexibility or the rigor involved in completing a master's program, I'd like to point out a few things. First of all, our program is structured so that students only take one course at a time. That is very important, because they can only focus on one particular topic throughout that seven-week period during which they are expected to complete a course and not be distracted by the challenges involved in balancing multiple priorities in their program of study. So it's only one course at a time that they advance through the program of study.

The second thing is our faculty are very flexible in terms of accommodating our working professionals' needs, which means that if, for whatever reason, they need additional support or they would need to have some added time to complete certain projects, that certainly is something that we provide support on. And also, the other thing is, we have some excellent program advisors in addition to our faculty who work with our students on an ongoing basis. So there's a wide support network in our community. And we call it a community because all of us pretty much gather around the same needs to serve the students. And therefore we try to establish that sense of a learning community. And we try to approach our students' needs in that way so that we all have complimentary contributions to our students' success.
