Elevating Expertise with a Higher Education

WBB’s own Dr. Rafael Matos, who recently earned his Ph.D. in Psychology from Walden University, shares how the advanced degree has enhanced his role as a senior operations research analyst. He says his doctoral-level knowledge in organizational psychology adds a “different dimension” to his expertise and better equips him to help WBB clients make mission-critical business decisions.
