"As a first time manager at Appian, the MBA program exposed me to other front line managers and provided a platform to discuss best practices around coaching, development, managing change, among many other topics. The course content and opportunitues to network with other Appian professionals across departments was invaluable."
- Kristin Barber, Regional Vice President, 2016 Appian MBA Program
"This program allowed me to advance my knowledge in HR through two ways, getting my MBA with an HR concentration and getting my SHRM-SCP certification. These benefits include: advanced knowledge in my field of study, thus allowing me to be a reliable employee for Appian in understanding and knowing more in my field and potentially advancing in my career. Also, when passed per the policy, Appian was able to pay for half of my MBA program and my full certification, which was amazing and a huge load off.
This definitely allowed me to get a better foundation of HR and understand of the different rules and regulations. Through my studies, I was able to use Appian as an example in things like creating and rewriting employee handbooks, understanding their purpose and significance, and being a better manager to our employees and my team. My supervisor, VP of HR Debbie Moser, was 100% supportive of me during this process and was able to provide advice and opinions on my assignments. I also leaned on CFO Mark Lynch heavily from the executive standpoint for advice and mentorship."
