I wanted to pursue my bachelor's abroad to broaden my horizons and gain a different perspective on International Business. I chose Carlson School of Management for its amazing academic and placement record. I had scored 97% in my 12th boards (high school) in the commerce stream and that boosted my application for admission that I submitted online. I had paid an application fee of $50.
The course is set up in a way where we get exposure to international breadth in areas like economy, globalization, etc which will deepen our knowledge about how business is done beyond the boundaries. We also get a clear picture of the pros and cons of doing international business and how to be solution-oriented while dealing with a mishap. Few topics that are covered in our course are International Accounting, International Business Communication, cultural anthropology, global trade and policy, etc.
I applied for this college because it was the cheapest. I transferred to UMD from Michigan Tech my sophomore year because I couldn't afford Michigan Tech anymore. I only applied to 2 schools during my senior year of high school. The application fees for Michigan Tech were free but at UMD it was $50.
I think there needs to be more actuarial science related classes to help me on while applying to jobs.
After completing my bachelor's degree in information and technology engineering I developed a keen interest in the field of computer science. Hence I decided to apply for a master's degree in computer science. I applied to a number of US universities and got accepted into the University of Minnesota. I applied through the official website along with an application fee of $95.
The computer science program at the University offered me a comprehensive course curriculum which is interesting as well as educational. I have the opportunity to learn theoretical as well as applied concepts of computer science engineering. The university also gives me the opportunity to conduct and assist in innovative research in the fields of robotics and artificial intelligence.
The programs they offered were exactly what I was looking for. Most colleges did not offer any animal science-based programs, hence my decision. Plus I could live closer to home so that was another reason.
Depending on the school I would say they have a wide verity. They offer a lot of different courses within the different programs and give every student an opportunity to try other classes within other programs.
I chose UMD because it was close to home. I transferred there after a medical issue and needed to be close to my doctors. I ended up really liking it because of the Mock Trial team, which I am now the VP of.
UMD's curriculum for my program is pretty limited. There are many courses that used to be offered but have since been removed because there aren't enough professors to teach them. This is really frustrating because many of the courses I think would be fun to take are actually not offered. It makes it difficult to plan for successful graduation.
I wanted to attend a large campus, so I could meet an ample amount of people and be surrounded by an immense community. I have previously only attended small private schools so this was a big change for me.
So far I enjoy my course curriculum. I feel as thought my major directed classes are very relevant and useful information that I am learning. I have looked over my courses I will be taking over the next few years and they seem interesting to me.
It had the program I wanted. I liked the location of the school and the class sizes were smaller. The school offered different groups and teams that Iike and wanted to be apart of. I had friends who went to school as well.
I think it?s perfect for my program and it covers everything that I need to know to be equipped for a job in business management. I really liked my leadership class because it taught me how to do a good job of being a good leader.
This university is ranked as the best graduate school for child psychology, which I would love to be a part of. And as an undergrad, I am able to work with the graduate students in a lab setting, which is a very rare and amazing opportunity.
I've enjoyed many of the classes I've taken so far. I came in with a lot of my generals complete and felt it was unnecessary to continue taking classes that weren't related to my major, at first. But I've realized through my generals that I've taken last semester some topics that I am extremely interested in that I wouldn't have known without the course curriculum set up the way it is, so I am glad we have a goal as a school to diversify our classes and learn new things about ourselves.
Great programs and I was able to focus on those that matched my aspirations. Specifically, those areas that prepared me for corporate leadership. I wanted to be ready to lead in a healthy way. The university allowed me to do this.
My opinion is that the courses I took helped me to prepare for my future career. They did so because I was able to pick from a wide array of classes that allowed me to 'specialize' in the areas I wanted to concentrate on.
Location. It's within walking distance of my home which heavily impacted my decision. I also appreciated the fact that I already had somewhat of a community there because my high school is a feeder school for the university and a lot of my friends would be going.
It's terrific. I wish there were more classes that focused on aspects of stories that haven't been told, especially in the journalism classes. The rigor of the classes is on par with what I was expecting. It's challenging but not to the point where it's frustrating.
