    Throughout my life journey I was always told by my parents the importance of experiencing different cultures as it will help me in the future. Therefore, while I was applying for universities, Hult captured my eyes, as it was a multicultural university with six campuses in different countries around the world. Hult had a student body that was diverse and most importantly it emphasised on the importance of diversity, belongingness, and inclusiveness. I wanted a place where I would feel comfortable getting educated in.

    Course Curriculum :

    My master's program had to change the course curriculum to fit in with the covid-19 restrictions. The schedule was changed into; instead of having five courses at once for a full semester, we had one course at a time for two weeks. I found this more useful as it gave you more time to focus and give your full capacity and efficiency. Hult is always offering relevant courses to our major. We are always going in-depth and experiencing real-life problems. All the courses are hands-on.
