I am from the Czech republic, Europe but now I live in NSW, Australia. At Rushmore university, I completed an MBA program, followed by a PhD. program and then I was appointed professor. From the very first day of my studies at Rushmore university and also throughout all my studies, the Rushmore approach to me as a student was highly professional. All study programs I completed were practically oriented and helped me expand my leadership skills and knowledge for my career as a university vice-rector.
I very much appreciate Rushmore university´s non-traditional approach to education. It showed me new possibilities, and ways of education. This 100% online study allowed me to study and at the same time to handle a full-time job. I am proud to be a graduate of this university!
I enrolled at Rushmore to gain further qualifications in Management and Leadership, as I held a Senior Managers role, and was looking to gain promotion to the Senior Leadership Team. The Company regarded qualifications highly, and promoted those with advanced degrees. I saw that, without these qualifications I would not be in a position to advance. After researching different on-line courses, I selected Rushmore, as it gave me the opportunity to work at my own pace, and on subjects that were relevant to my situation not general subjects that were part of other courses.
During the initial studies, I changed the subject of my dissertation. Part of my leadership studies involved studying Emotional Intelligence, and the value of this in becoming a valued leader. I realized this could also be used to help understand the effects of PTSD in veterans, and how to provide moral assistance to those who suffer. As a Vietnam Veteran, this research has at times opened some painful buried memories, but writing my dissertation on PTSD has also been therapeutic. The encouragement and understanding of the staff at Rushmore, and the patience and guidance of my advisor, Professor Don Mitchell, have enabled me to achieve my qualification, while also helping me accept the effects of PTSD.
Along the journey of my Rushmore Doctoral Program I learned new ways of thinking and triggering my creativity for developing best methodologies and writing skills in the domains of my Research. My supervising Professor and Dean of Studies, Alan Guinn, showed me the way how to synopsize my career learnings in a way which helped me to create a personal climate of motivation to write my upcoming book. The Leadership I received in my degree program was superior.
Since I started my Doctoral studies with Rushmore, my life has changed in the moment when I realized that my actual activities in business strategy consulting should from now on be classified as part of the past and that I should take a new direction towards the future of Research in energy strategy development.
Today, as a new PhD graduate, I already started my exciting journey with new energy projects in Asia and Africa and I’m grateful to Rushmore for having me shown the way how to change life through new leadership development.
I believe Rushmore truly represents a newer learning model; not one where you learn by rote, but where you are challenged to learn new material and apply new thinking and new knowledge in alternative ways.
In this way, I would like to quote J.F. Kennedy saying that: « Leadership and Learning are indispensable to each other »
And Leonardo da Vinci: « All our knowledge has its origins in our perceptions »
