“Donna’s mentoring changed me as a professional, and I learned to be an innovator and an entrepreneur at Cambridge College."

Angel Rosa came to Cambridge College as a young man already employed full-time in a well-paying job and not sure he had the time to pursue another degree. The College’s flexible programs soon convinced him he could both keep working and continue his education and professional growth: “I could be in class in the evening and apply the knowledge and skills I had learned the next day in my job.”

Angel credits School of Management Senior Professor Donna Maimes with transforming the way he approached not just his program of study but the way he thought, executed and delivered in his job. He says of his time at the College, “Donna’s mentoring changed me as a professional, and I learned to be an innovator and an entrepreneur at Cambridge College. Before coming there, I had a job I went to everyday and collected a pay check. After going there, I had a clear path to a bigger career and a greater focus on achieving results-driven execution and transformative leadership at the senior levels of organizations.”

Today, Angel is a Vice President at AthenaHealth and knows he may never have taken this career path without Cambridge College. “I’ve told a lot of people about the College, especially those who need a place that will help them with balancing priorities. Not everyone can afford to drop their career and go to school full time, which is why institutions like Cambridge College are so vital.”

Angel's mother, Marta, also experienced the power of a Cambridge College education early in her career. Read Marta's story
