Networking propels student to success
Michael O'Connor
MS in Project Management Alumnus


When Michael O'Connor decided to return to school in 2006, his original goals were simply to learn more about project management and advance his career. He completed his Master of Science in Project Management at UW-Platteville, but realized he wanted more. Now, eight years and four degrees later, O'Connor reflects on the transformation of his journey.
