I am a parent of 3 boys and a federal worker. I am a supervisor in Logistics Department. I was accepted to Villanova University for their online MPA program. I've been really excited and my first class begins July 1st. The curriculum requires once a week a two-hour session (online) on Wednesday or Monday depending on the class. However, I am having growing concerns that my manager is not going to accommodate my schedule after a while. Sadly, some do not value education.
Should I apply for another program even though I've been accepted to such a great school? Rutgers is another online MPA program that I would be interested in. There is no requirement to have an online class discussion. I would be free from any potential restraints or possible schedule conflicts. Or should I just roll the dice that my manager will work with me like he said, even though at any time he could stop. My fear is that this happens halfway through grad school.
CC, what say you? Any advice is greatly appreciated 🙏
