A degree in emergency management was the perfect fit for my career in incident management. The quality of the material is top-notch and the “real-life” relevancy of the lessons can be applied to all types of careers. Obtaining this level of education complements my years in the wildland firefighting field and has opened doors to exciting career opportunities.
