Student Spotlight: Andy Chung, MHRIR 2017
When Andy started at LER, he was living in Chicago, IL, and working in a consulting role. The online program provided an opportunity to build a diverse network of professional peers and develop competencies that he could immediately implement with clients. Upon graduating, Andy joined Synchrony Financial as Associate Vice President of Human Resources, where he focuses on talent management and workforce planning in a competitive financial services market.
The online program was, Andy writes, “the best professional decision thus far in my early career. This degree not only taught me and disciplined me well in the HR/business profession, but it has propelled my career into exciting new waters. . . . interviewing for a role with a new organization was pretty intense, arduous, and took over three months, but they were impressed with the acumen I've attained largely thanks to the MHRIR degree.”
