Graduate Gets Promotion at Prestigious University

A few years ago, Sudbury, Ontario native Mary Beswick wouldn't have anticipated she would be living in balmy Chapel Hill North Carolina, working as a Human Resources specialist at a prestigious post-secondary institution.  This past July however, Beswick received a promotion to the position of Employment Consultant at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, and has just created a robust new employee orientation program with her colleagues.  Beswick credits these exciting developments in her career, in part, to her completion of the Master of Education in Adult Education at Yorkville University in 2016.  Beswick’s MEd. in Adult Education not only gave her the accreditation necessary to advance in her career, but the practical skills required to develop a reputation for being an authority in her area of expertise.
