[MUSIC PLAYING] TERRY: I'm currently a program manager for an information technology company in the area, and this opportunity came to me after I graduated Georgetown University
I was doing a couple things before Georgetown and while in Georgetown. I was running my own company, technology management company, as well as working as a program manager for another small company in the Washington, DC area.
My take on the faculty is that Georgetown has again went above and beyond what other schools that I know are doing and got the best of the best in their fields to come in and help guide and instruct and lay the foundation for technology management students that are going through the program today.
The skills that I was able to polish up and to refine here at the program were skills such as interacting with other technology management type of students and professionals. So I would say that what I learned at Georgetown in terms of skill sets was more of a refinement and polishing of what I brought to the program.
My general sense of the faculty is professionals, top of their profession, genuinely interested in the success of the students, generally interested and embodies what Georgetown stands for and means.
I think the biggest strength for the technology management program is the students that they produce. All the projects and all the classes that I took were of the highest quality. My fellow students were both collaborative and competitive. Competitive in the sense of when we were attempting to ensure that we were producing the highest quality product for our classes. And collaborative, when we needed help, no one asked why me. We all just pitched in.
Three words. The three words that I would use to describe the technology management program, relevant, exciting, awesome.
