"I attended UID to brush up on my skills and gain new insight to continue to grow as a manager. I was impressed by the quality of the classes and know there is more I can learn at UID. I met people across many different industries and realized that when you remove the products, our business challenges are the same. We discussed ideas and solutions for our common issues and I brought back ideas to improve our process." – Andrew Snyder, Clampitt Paper Company
