I was very drawn to the fact that Lasell University is a quaint, community-based school that focuses on Connected Learning with small class sizes and engaged instructors. The application procedure was also not that difficult. I applied to the university with the help of an online application.
The bachelor in marketing curriculum introduced me to all the major marketing trends, including marketing research techniques and demographic studies. I am also studying the topics such as business law and ethics, international marketing, nonprofit marketing, product marketing, and service marketing. A broad range of transferable skills, and gaining a strong competence in critical thinking is also taught to me. My curriculum imparted hands-on business experience too.
