Ismat Zareen, Information Security Analyst at State Farm, earned her Master of Science in Cybersecurity from Bellevue University in 2022. The degree program enabled her to pursue professional and personal areas of interest that supported her career goals.
Ismat comments about her experience:
"I don't think a lot of people are aware of how wonderful the Cybersecurity program at Bellevue University really is. It has been my dream to earn my master's degree in Cybersecurity, so my mindset was to never give up. Work hard and the dream will come true.
"My manager was my biggest supporter," Ismat continues. "He encouraged me to reach out to my director about going back to school. I contacted my director and told him I was interested in pursuing my master's degree and he helped me complete the process. My team members and manager were so impressed a proud of me for graduating with my master's degree. I'm so happy I went back to school, and I have State Farm and Bellevue University's partnership to thank for that."
