Aleks Pusoski, a 2022 MBA graduate, completed his degree online while working full-time for Marriott Hotels and fulfilling responsibilities as a Mortuary Affairs Specialist with the U.S. Army Reserve. 

“My schedule requires a lot of planning, time management, and dedication,” said Pusoski, who is a Room Operations Manager at the St. Regis Hotel – a Forbes five-star luxury hotel overlooking Fifth Avenue in Midtown Manhattan. “My job is in New York City, I live in North Jersey, and my Army Reserve Unit is in Staten Island. Online classes made it easier since I’m all around.” 

Nilsa Sanchez, a military spouse who completed a Bachelor of Science in Legal Studies in 2022, said distance learning offered her the flexibility she needed to complete her degree while meeting family obligations. 

“I am homeschooling my two children and studying online at Berkeley College worked for me because I could find time in between my other responsibilities,” Sanchez said. “The support was excellent. Everything was easy to follow and when I had questions, I reached out to my professors, advisor, and the Help Desk, who were always there to help. They help you turn your weaknesses into strengths.”
