This doctorate program has a fantastic curriculum that helped me do research and gain experience in new technologies like cloud and cyber security. Also, it provided me with great insight on applicability of agile methodology to large and complex enterprise projects. I created many long-term friends from my class cohort and gained a new perspective to accelerate IT transformations on many of my IT groups. I highly recommend this program to expand your computing and IT technical skills,
