    After I heard that the university is extremely good in education quality and the student reviews also said that the university will prepare me to thrive in the most competitive environments, as well as globally renowned faculty members. My GPA of 7 helped me to get admitted here. I was required to submit a common application form.

    Course Curriculum :

    Simple economic concepts and tools and their application to the interactions between growing economies and the environment. Concepts include: supply and demand; models of economic growth; theory of externalities; valuation of natural capital and environmental services;

    I did my bachelors from this University so I did not have to give any entrance exams when applying for my masters

    Course Curriculum :

    Data analytics is certainly a very relevant course in this day and age especially considering the fact that my program had a mix of both machine learning as well as project management.

    I surfed online webpages about Colleges. I got to know everything about the college and the facilities it provides maybe academic or recreational facilities within the campus. I applied for other colleges too but I like the school of business the most because of its environment and secondly, my aunt lives in Connecticut. the application form is for $75.

    Course Curriculum :

    MS in business analytics helped me grow some real business analytics and project management skills. I can analyze the dynamic aspect of business and projects as its integrated curriculum builds a global perspective and helps to evolve with the business environment.

    I read about this on Collegedunia only. I got to know everything about the college and it provides every academic and recreational facility within the campus. I also applied to several colleges which is important because no one knows where you are gonna be. So as a backup you should always do the same.

    Course Curriculum :

    It has a very simple curriculum having 57 credits, turning you into an expert of finance, health system financial management, marketing, OPM and real estate investment and financing.

    This is one of the best-ranked colleges in its states and apart from that this is a public-funded college meaning the course fee are slightly lesser than the private ones, these were the reason why I decided to join this college. I applied to college online mainly because it is much more convenient. The cost of the application fee is $75.

    Course Curriculum :

    The course emphasizes on building leadership, entrepreneurial thinking, and strategic vision. The course provides the students with a lot of case study to learn from and along with that a lot of projects to develop real-world problem-solving skills.
