“After a thirty-year business career that began in a large corporation and then transitioned into entrepreneurial endeavors, there was unfinished business in my life. The Reed Master of Liberal Studies Program provided me with a structured and challenging environment to further explore my intellectual interests. I recommend the Reed MALS program to anyone who considers personal growth through the pursuit of knowledge an important part of life.”
