    HAMPDEN SYDNEY COLLEGE : BANGLADESHI STUDENT'S REVIEW

    I have always excelled in smaller environments, and Hampden Sydney College fits that perfectly. The college attracts high-quality professors because this community and the land around me is incredible. I applied to the college with the help of a common application form.


    Course Curriculum - 

    This course focuses on topics related to the international flow of goods and services, capital, and labor, as well as economic policies. I am getting to study topics like the economic rationale for trade in goods and services, flows of labor across borders, economic integration, international capital flows, foreign direct investment, and foreign exchange rate determination.
