The leadership, management, and marketing skills I’ve learned at Capella are already useful in my military role, but they're equally valuable in preparing me for a civilian career in business.

As a military spouse, our location at any given time is ever changing.  Attending school online means I don't have to worry about what will happen to my schooling in the event of my husband’s deployment.
