Hear from Our Graduates!


Valoria Armstrong, '17

"When choosing a university for my graduate degree, Villanova immediately stood out as my #1 choice. Its reputation and challenging curriculum immediately appealed to me. As a full time HR professional in a very demanding job, I also needed a program that was extremely flexible, so the online option was perfect for me. While I knew the curriculum was strong, what really impressed me was the professionalism of my professors and classmates. I'd recommend Villanova to anyone considering a Master's Degree."

"Attending Villanova was one of the greatest experiences of my life! The online classes suited my busy schedule and the live interaction once per week was a dynamic learning environment with people all over the world.  Villanova's innovative approach was the most challenging and rewarding experience, and I loved every minute of it.  Interacting with the other students during class, along with meeting all of the other online graduates during graduation on the campus was amazing and really added that personal touch to the entire experience. It showed me that Villanova really cares about personal relationships and the entire staff were incredible from matriculation as a student to graduation and beyond. My tenure as a Villanova student may be over, but as a Villanova Alumnus, I know I will stand head and shoulders above my HR peers and I couldn’t be prouder as I wear the MS HRD Villanova Graduate badge of honor."

"After working in a full time for a few years after graduating with a bachelors, I decided it was time to go back to school to continue learning and to gain additional experience. I heard great things about Villanova’s HRD program, specifically about the networking opportunities, internships, mentorship program, and professors. In addition to the knowledge I gained while in the program, I graduated with a better understanding of what I wanted to do in the HR field, a PHR, SHRM-CP certification and amazing friendships that I built during my time as a student. I look forward to continued involvement with Villanova’s HRD program as an alumni."

"I chose the Villanova HRD Program because I was extremely impressed with what alumni of the program have gone on to do in the field of HR.  In addition to the reputation of the alumni, conversations with faculty members were important in my decision as I learned about the firsthand HR experiences these individuals had and how they applied them in their own classrooms."
