Ke’Von Morrow knows exactly where he wants his career to go.
“Business is all around us,” Morrow said. “There are many places where business can take you. I’ve been looking into where I want to go as a 22-year-old, and account managing is the path I want to take.”
Morrow aspires to work for big companies like Apple, Microsoft, and Google. Working as a solutions specialist for Verizon, Morrow was acquiring valuable work experience. But he knew that to pursue the career he wanted, he needed a degree to match that skill set.
“Work experience will only take you so far,” he said. “I need to get a degree to set myself apart and be a more valuable candidate and asset for the company.”
When researching potential schools, Morrow asked around. A lot of the people he spoke to were Baker graduates. He also appreciated the convenience that Baker offers students.
“I’m a very busy person who works 40+ hours a week,” he said. “I can’t just drop down to part time and go to school full time. Baker gives me that flexibility to work around my busy schedule to get an education.”
Last June, Morrow enrolled in the Bachelor of Business Administration program and is majoring in strategic business communication. He is set to graduate in 2022 and says he hopes to “be a resource people can reach out to take care of them.”
With the implementation of Baker 360°, the comprehensive eBook and digital resource environment, Morrow found it easier than ever to keep up with his studies while maintaining his job.
“The main thing I like about Baker 360° is how I get my books digitally,” he said. “I don’t have to carry a book around with me if I want to read my school resources on the go. For example, I have hour breaks at work. During that time, I grab food and read my book on my phone. My phone is an item I have with me at all times, so it’s a great and convenient resource to have.”
Morrow’s enrollment advisor, Sherry Davidson, said Morrow has shown his determination and ambition in every step of pursuing his degree.
“With each step in the enrollment process, Ke’Von had great questions and was always excited about completing each task,” Davidson said. “After being admitted, Ke’Von found the time to visit me on campus. I was so pleased to finally meet him in person! He will be a great success story at Baker University.”
