Student Profile: Pamela Wall-Dover
Name: Pamela Wall-Dover
Degree Program: Master of Management
Pamela Wall-Dover enjoyed her job, but she was ready to take the next step and advance her career at The Boeing Company. She wanted to be the best employee she could be and to be a valued and effective leader within her company. She knew she could gain a competitive edge by going to graduate school and enhancing her management skills.
"I wanted a program that would allow me to balance work, family and school, but that would still offer a rigorous curriculum," she said. "Fontbonne’s Master of Management program encapsulated all of my needs."
After starting the program, Wall-Dover found that her initial impression was correct.
"The faculty was excellent!" she said. "Many were professionals currently working in the fields they taught. They also understood the challenges of being a working student."
Upon graduating from the program, Wall-Dover saw changes at work quickly. Her responsibilities were increased, and she was asked to take on more leadership roles, too.
"Since graduating with my master’s degree, my role and responsibilities at work have expanded," she said. "Now that I have the management skills and the degree to back them up, I lead a team of employees that support our business initiatives across five sites. I am thankful for my Fontbonne education."
