Not that long ago, students might have decided which institution to attend and then choose which program they wanted to study at that school. Now, though, students face mounting pressure to make the right choice when selecting a program, and in many cases, this will lead students to choose their program first and later decide which school has the best reputation in their program area.

What makes for a fulfilling workplace? It all starts with feeling as though you’re having an impact, that you’re making a difference at your institution.
