Meet Maureen Thompson!
HR Professional Certificate Graduate

"It is a successful program and well embodied in regards to topics in Human Resources.”


Maureen Thompson graduated from the Continuing Education Department’s Human Resources (HR) Certificate Program at Central Connecticut State University (CCSU) in June of 2016. While working at CCSU, she was browsing the university web page and discovered the certification on the Continuing Education website. Ms. Thompson grew excited over the program because she had strong interest in HR for some time, and already maintained an MBA.


While Ms. Thompson’s current employment at Bank of America is not related to HR, she still values her experience and education during her time in the HR program at CCSU. She thought the instructors were professional in delivering information from their personal experiences and not out of textbooks. Ms. Thompson met a lot of good people and plans to stay in touch with them. The program lasted for six weeks, but Ms. Thompson found herself “thirsting for more knowledge at the conclusion of each course.” Ms. Thompson joined the HRACC and the chapter opened her eyes to a lot of networking opportunities. She wishes to be more involved in the HRACC in the future.
