Meet Lori Andrews,
Widowed in 1992 and raising a young child, Lori Andrews postponed continuing her education to complete her Master of Business Administration. She worked in the nonprofit field for more than a decade before becoming a manager in human resources at the Los Angeles Times in 2000. In 2008, Andrews became a human resources business partner for an aerospace defense company.
With a new goal to move into higher leadership positions within human resources, she felt that the clearest path was to earn her MBA. Andrews also had a secondary reason for wanting to complete her MBA: she planned to teach human resources at the college level some day.
“I attended a University of Phoenix ground campus one evening a week, which allowed me to continue working during the day without interruptions," she explains. " I also took several of my classes at the end of my degree program through the online format which was very convenient.”
While widely available, not all programs are available in all locations or in both online and on-campus formats. Please check with a University Enrollment Representative by calling 866.766.0766.
