The MSA program at Northeastern sets a truly professional environment for students. My fellow classmates seem more like colleagues. Everyone in the program actually wants to be there. The people that surround me every day are just as eager to learn and develop their careers as I am. Being around people who are of the same mentality pushes me to really challenge myself.KEREN DEKEL, MSA'16
