It hasn’t been easy—2020 has posed tremendous, unprecedented challenges on many fronts. COVID-19 and the economic crisis have forced us all to adapt on the fly, changing the way we work and learn and live, pushing us to question the status quo, to take a deeper, more thoughtful look at our assumptions about our world and how we progress in it. And through it all, you’ve pressed ahead on your mission, facing these challenges and embracing them with strength, flexibility, and determination.
Now, it’s time to take a moment to celebrate yourself, and the life-changing achievement of earning your Master’s degree. You’ve shown tremendous dedication and tenacity in pursuing your dream, faced the complexities of balancing your education with your work and family lives, all while navigating the incredible challenges this year has placed on you, your family, and your colleagues. You’ve emerged stronger and better prepared for where your journey takes you next. As MAAS graduates, you’re a uniquely talented group—agile big-picture thinkers, transformative leaders, with an empathetic, forward-thinking vision.
