[MUSIC PLAYING] CENETRA: I am a network engineer. During the time of the program, I was a network engineer at Booz Allen Hamilton. But after I received my degree and I graduated, about six months later, I was offered a new position at Scientific Research Corporation, upon the receipt of my degree.
One of the cool things about it is the manager who hired me for a Scientific Research Corporation, he was a part of our team when we're at Booz Allen Hamilton. So, he got to see all the work that I did, and it gave me position as a senior network engineer as opposed to junior network engineer. There is definitely a strong network among the faculty and students at Georgetown. One thing that I really like about the program is they used people from the outside world. So, they use their own connections to rear in individuals from corporations like Facebook and Google.
What I liked about the faculty here is that they actually brought in some of their own connections that they were working with outside of Georgetown. And because they did that, they actually incorporated a part of themselves into the program. I mean, there are so many good things that we did here that I'd like to use-- I can definitely say that everything that I did in the program, I used in the outside world.
We have individuals here from various military institutions, so-- organizations rather-- such as Air Force, Navy, Army, Marine Corps. I've seen them all. So, we have a great-- we have great diversity in the student body here.
The first thing I would ask them is where would they like to attend graduate school? And, if it's here in Washington, DC, I would definitely recommend Georgetown University's technology management program. And that reason is because this program is not just about technology. It's about leading the technology field. It's about becoming a leader. It's about learning the business structure, and engineering, and technology.
If you're looking for a program that provides you insight into the technology and engineering arena, I would definitely choose Georgetown University's technology management program. If I were to give an elevator pitch to someone who was interested in this program, I would tell them to choose the Georgetown University's technology management program, because it gives you insight into leadership, technology, and the engineering realm of business here in Washington, DC.
