HOW IT ALL WORKS
Julie Rice Suggs, PhD
MEET DR. JULIE SUGGS
As the Academic Director and lead professor, Julie on-boards the students to the 12-week program through a series of calls and e-mails.
Accompanying the 11 courses, there is a project called the Packaging Development Plan (PDP) that students are asked to complete on a weekly basis.
This is an ongoing project throughout the Certificate of Mastery in Packaging Management program and results in a fantastic asset for students to share with any stakeholder involved in bringing their projects to life.
Dr. Suggs reviews the projects and will offer feedback and assistance to each and every student.
This personal attention makes the Certificate of Mastery in Packaging Management course stand out from other online courses.
