Advancing Career and Journey in Law with Specialized Skills

Amy Ferguson, Contract Management Certificate Program

Why did you choose the Contract Management certificate?

My background is in real estate. I have worked for a few different developers on many different product types. I always found the contracts for those real estate deals to be especially important and wanted to gain the skill set required to better support the projects I worked on. The contract management course helped me to improve process and procedure as well as confirmed my interest in the field.

What did you enjoy most about your experience in the program?

I truly enjoyed learning from the teachers. They brought their own experience to the table which provided me with a deeper understanding and knowledge of the concepts and standards.

What was your favorite course in the program, and why?

I don’t think I could pick just one. All the courses work in concert with each other and provide valuable information.

What impact did earning your Contract Management certificate have on your educational journey or career?

The impact my certificate had on my career is immense. I was able to secure a new role as a Contract Specialist at one of the leading national real estate companies simply by being enrolled in the program and sharing the knowledge I had already acquired. As it relates to my educational journey, the course has reaffirmed my interest in law, and I will continue my education to obtain my degree.
