Stratford University alumni hold positions at U.S. government agencies and top corporations

Before joining Stratford University I came to United States as an AuPair on J-1 visa. I am happy my friends recommended Stratford because it’s a really good university! The professors at Stratford are very accessible. Stratford is giving me the tools I need to start my own business; It’s been an incredible experience!

Capstone Project

The Capstone Project at Stratford inspired me to obtain a deeper knowledge of my major, and in the end demonstrated what skills I had honed in analyzing business strategy, and in researching and planning financial investments, for any new business. My confidence was reinforced through the Captsone experience, making me ready for future project proposals and model tools and techniques needed in the business world.

Android App

With mobile phones becoming go-to information sources, our project was to develop a user-friendly Android app for users interested in Java certification. The app provided a holistic approach to certification with extra features such as quick revision of exam topics and practice tests. Our Android app, Javafication, became available on the Internet in the Play Store for free, culminating everything we’ve learned at Stratford.

Business Capstone

Based on my Capstone topic, I was able to explore current non-traditional business models in various industries and speak to administration professionals in the targeted career fields to help determine how I wanted to design my own innovative business venture. I felt empowered with confidence in my research and organization, and the completion of this Capstone led to a renewed self-assurance for me in the workplace.
