    Industrial engineering is famous at UT Knoxville and the Haslam school of business has world class Supply chain ranking

    Course Curriculum :

    Had opportunities to take courses at Haslam school of business with its renowned reputation for Supply chain. Other than that the classes are flexible and weekly seminars were quite up to date

    I chose this university primarily for the location, as Boston is one of the best places to study when you are a business student. I knew someone who passed out of this university and had told me that it was really good.

    Course Curriculum :

    The course curriculum is really good, but I feel that the subjects you can major in are limited(in the college of management).

    I was working in the city, Although I was working in data analysis after completing my bachelor's in computer science, wanted to increase my income so I decided to go for the Masters in the degree since I wasn't from the Economics field. So I wanted to pursue a course while still living in the city as my parents lived with me, so I applied for this college online. The application process for the college was $60.

    Course Curriculum :

    Since I have opted to major in information management, our course focuses on foundational data analysis methodologies and disruptive information technologies relevant to business processes and financial and organizational decision making.

    Scholarships. And the proximity to my hometown. It was the perfect distance for me- 3 hours. Also, my sister went there and loved it, and I had a lot of friends there. I wanted to stay in-state too for the tuition

    Course Curriculum :

    A lot of general education requirements got in the way of my focus. Wished I had more opportunity for elective courses. But I understand it for people who are undecided in their major, which many students at UTK are.
