April Beauford

Major: Masters in Information Management
Hometown: St. Joseph

One day, April Beauford discovered that she had gone as far in her career as she could without an advanced degree. She was working at American Family Insurance and realized that the perfect opportunity to advance her career was right across the street. While her bachelor’s degree allowed her to be on par with others in the workplace, she discovered that receiving her Masters in Information Management – Enterprise Resource Planning would help her gain the competitive edge she was looking for. “There are so many valuable experiences and knowledge that I’ve gained that I’m able to use in the two very different positions that I’ve had since I’ve been at American Family,” she says about her time at Missouri Western. Because of the knowledge, skills and connections April gained at Missouri Western, she has been able to advance in her career.
