Louie Orbeta: Student Success Story

“I had been looking to compliment my BSc Comp Sci degree, I found out about PACE’s offerings and decided that evening to enroll.” Louie is a graduate of the Management Certificate program, which he completed in just over a year and a half.

“I chose this program due to the scheduling flexibility, having online offerings, and the school’s downtown location which is a 5 minute walk from my office.” This flexibility allowed Louie to maintain his busy family and personal life, a full-time job, and training for his first Ironman Triathlon.

Louie was a very active student, embracing the collaborative learning in both the classroom and in the online courses. “The instructors were more than willing to encourage class discussions and collaboration, one of the many things I was able to bring back to my current role as team lead at work. I enhanced my communication, negotiation, and leadership skills, and see our organization as a holistic entity that is working towards a common goal.”

“I am happy to recommend this program to anyone who is pursuing a career in leadership and management.”
