They're really teaching you the skills you need to be a leader in your field and to understand decisions that other leaders are making. 
Virginia Foster 
I was looking to move my career from a mid-level government employee to an executive position. After graduating in 2012, a year and a half later I am now the executive director of a non-profit. 
Kate Fritz
"The positive experience in the program began for me with the academic advising, where the Program Director took the time to understand my individual interests and goals and thoughtfully helped create a plan of study that met these. Being from Africa and having a keen interest in African conservation issues I wanted to create an even more personalized learning experience that aligned with my specific interest in large scale African transboundary conservation."
Neil Dampier
"International experiences have proven to be valuable in the job market. Navigating a physical and cultural environment different from our own prepares us to deal with unexpected circumstances."
Tuuli Martin
The XMNR program provided an outstanding foundation for my next professional chapter, upon my return to Korea. I’m now honored to work for EcoLead, a comprehensive green consulting firm, as the head of the LEED certification department and as a general manager. The XMNR program provided me with interdisciplinary knowledge and professional skills that I continue to apply each day.
Syoung Lee
The XMNR degree has helped me to build an international work portfolio and is also helpful as I assist in urban renewal programs in my hometown of Detroit. Challenges of sustainability are truly relevant wherever we find ourselves.
