2 Looking at the Big Picture I had put off grad school for years, not knowing exactly what the right field was and where the right school was. After a sleepless night of Internet searching, I came upon the distance learning option at Abilene Christian University. The feeling that this was the right choice was instant I knew Abilene had a solid reputation, and I knew that the Master of Science in Organizational Development would not only help me in my current job, but would also be a good base for furthering my education with a doctoral degree.
