Testimonials at TCSPP
I entered my doctoral program as a very ‘senior’ learner in her 60s - unsure, anxious, and concerned that I had waited too long to fulfill my academic dream of earning a Ph.D. [...] I was awarded my Ph.D. in Organizational Leadership in the fall of 2015. My dissertation was nominated for the 2015 Emerald/EFMD Outstanding Doctoral Research Award [...] I owe this wonderful new chapter in my professional life to TCSPP.
