Student Success Story

Rebecca Losasso
Contract Management Certificate Program

Rebecca Losasso, Contract Management Certificate Program, Graduate

“I chose the Contract Management certificate program at the College of Continuing Education because of the reputation of Sacramento State as well as the reasonable cost. I appreciate that there are programs outside of traditional degree programs to further my education. A highlight of my experience included learning from other classmates who are currently in the industry; they provided real world applicability to the fundamentals that were taught. All of the instructors were engaging and supportive. Everyone through the process was supportive and responsive.”
