“The communication from everybody at Merrimack college has been outstanding. I hear back from people. They are incredibly responsive. They address any questions that I’ve had. Everything from tuition questions to accessing canvas, to homework questions. Every body’s been incredibly responsive.”

Product Management Graduate, 2023

“I think the program’s flexibility was really helpful. It was something that I was really able to build my schedule around. I have a very demanding work schedule, some customers have to meet at night, so being able to work remotely as well as go back and watch the lectures on my own time and really build that schedule around when I have time to do it was super helpful.”
