Dena Hlatky - DCP, Human Resources Grad

Dena_Hlatky.jpg

Dena Hlatky was working as a restaurant supervisor and attending the Allegany College of Maryland as a full-time student earning an associate degree when she decided she would like to complete her bachelor’s degree. To her, a bachelor’s degree meant a higher income and, more importantly, a job in a field she had a passion for — human resources. 

Geneva’s Degree Completion Program (DCP) seemed like the obvious option for Dena in her search for her bachelor’s degree. After hearing about the DCP held at Allegany, Dena decided to join the program. She says, “Because the program was offered at ACM, I could obtain my degree only 20 miles away from home and did not need to relocate to a large university.” Another attractive aspect of the program was that it offered a chance to finish a bachelor of science in human resources in as little as 17 months. In less than a year and a half, Dena would complete a degree that would help her secure a job that she truly desired.

Six months after she completed the program, Dena was offered a position as a human resources assistant at Canam Steel Corporation in Point of Rocks, Maryland — she loves the job and looks forward to going to work each morning. But, even with the achievement of a bachelor’s degree and a great job, Dena is not ready to slow down; she has continued her education at Mount Saint Mary’s University for her master’s degree in business administration. One of the most beneficial aspects of her education in the DCP is that she felt prepared to pursue her master’s with a concentration in management. 

“I would recommend Geneva to anyone,” Dena says. “The staff is great, it’s affordable, convenient and the education and memories that you will carry with you after completing the program are priceless.” If you were just considering the program before, she suggests that you enroll now — the 17 months pass quickly. “I can guarantee you, when the program is finished, you will say to yourself, ‘Gee, I can't believe that it is over already.’ It will be well worth all of your hard work in the end, and you will be glad that you enrolled.”
