    I work for a health insurance company as a marketing and media relations specialist. My position deals heavily with brand management, advertising, social media and PR. Having a master’s degree from the MU CPC program really sets you apart when applying for a job. The CPC program helped me to develop my writing and analytical skills and exposed me to different aspects of communications as possible careers.
