    My cousin was studying at BGSU when I got to know about the public university good for the public. I was very impressed with the way they empower and supported him in achieving excellence and leaving his impact through engagement. I submitted the online application form with a fee of $75.

    Course Curriculum :

    I saw a total change in myself with the analyzing and evaluating models and techniques with a hands-on curriculum. The curriculum was improvised and updated with the dynamic challenges and risks.

    I wanted to pursue a graduate program but the question was with whom. I called a consultancy who made me apply at the BGSU with an application fee of $75 through the online application. The consultancy told me stories of the alumnus and the impact on student success.

    Course Curriculum :

    The university is providing a program which is covering the knowledge beyond classrooms. The curriculum is designed so that each one of us learns analytical, technical, and soft skills with an integrated experience.

    I wanted to pursue my master's in economics, and the financial economics course of this university stands sixth in the nation as ranked by the TAFE times. The starting salaries, the bonus is appreciably higher, compared to many others. Hence, it is a good return on investment.

    Course Curriculum :

    It is a very balanced course, designed to prepare us either for a career in the financial industry or for further graduate study in economics or finance.

    BGSU is local to my home town and also offers a great program for my selected major. The university is also more affordable than other local schools. I took credits through BGSU during high school so my credits transferred.

    Course Curriculum :

    So far I enjoy the course curriculum. During high school, I was able to complete the prerequisite classes, which meant that when going on campus full time my classes were more intense than most students my age.

    The program and the way it made me feel. My program also has a collaboration with the FIT which is a fashion school in NYC and is the main reason why I chose to attend Bowling Green State University. I attended FIT all of my junior years and enjoyed every second of it, I also learned so much more while in NYC then I may have been able to here at Bowling Green mainly because the school in NYC is known to be a fashion school and that's what they specialize in.

    Course Curriculum :

    It's challenging at times but it will all be so worth it in the end. I find the Curriculum to be very interesting and very rewarding. I enjoy the classes I'm taking especially since they are now all related to my major.
