After speaking with a friend who graduated from Missouri Western, Ayobami Taiwo ’19 was impressed with the variety of classes offered to advance her IT career, the affordability of tuition and the diversity of the students and faculty.

Ayobami’s professors worked with her to ensure her success and understanding of everything presented in class.

“When I started my studies, I wasn’t sure what I wanted to be, but by graduation my professors had had such a strong impact on me that I was able to take a cloud certification exam right after,” Ayobami said. “I was always pushed through my studies, which is why I decided to do it without looking at all of the barriers and focusing on my strengths.”
