Leslie Granston

Director, Inclusion Strategies and Employee Relations
Time Inc.

"It's worth the trouble. It's worth the time and the investment, if you are motivated to learn. The program couldn't be designed more thoughtfully for professional people. It's a wonderful balance of the recognition of a professional schedule and demands and the rigor of the program. And the two years just fly by. I don't even know where the time went. It flies by."

Patrick McGreal

Senior Labor Relations Administrator
MTA, New York City Transit

"We have Democrats, Republicans, we have socialists, we have conservatives, we have labor, we have management, we have capitalists, we have not-for-profit people, we have public sector, we have private sector…and still one of the things that strikes me is how well we all get along and that there is actually a certain oneness—that even though we are all different, we can all study labor relations as academics. And this actually helps all of us understand our careers better and appreciate the different viewpoints in labor relations."

Kristine DeFiglio

Director of Recruiting Operations
Axelon Services Corporation

"I've gotten much more out of it than I think I even expected. I knew that I would be able to apply some of the lessons, but it's hard to realize before you get in the middle of it that these are things that you use every single day in your work life. You're in a class, and even though you're looking at supply and demand curves for the labor market, all of a sudden there's a light bulb, because you realize this is what you do every day."

Nicole Bertrán

Vice President of Program Services
The Edward J. Malloy Initiative for Construction Skills, Inc.

"I felt like the range of experiences in the program would be beneficial to me, and it absolutely has been. I've met people I wouldn't normally meet. I've learned things I wouldn't normally learn. And it's really been a wonderful experience. I think the coursework is completely manageable for a working person, and the program staff and faculty take a great interest in seeing everyone succeed."

Jack Hagen

Director of Construction
State University Construction Fund (SUNY)

"What you can't pick up until you experience it is the quality of the teaching and the classroom experience with your fellow students. It's a small cohort of students that go through at any one time. The interaction and the involvement of the professors—they're all full professors, they're tops in their field—it is just incredible. I can't say high enough marks for the experience that I've had here at Cornell."
