    This is a very popular and also a premium college for MBA. The thing that was in my mind whether I would be able to get in through the admission test or not. And that is why I decided to apply here as well as to some other universities as well. The fee for the application was $125 and the mode was online.

    Course Curriculum :

    As an individual, I learned about the forces transforming the global economy, including health & life sciences, digital technology, and social enterprise & sustainability. Topics like how to tackle ethical questions, issues that really matter were dealt with in-depth.

    It's a common man's dream to pursue his higher studies from a world educational hub like the United States of America. Mine wasn't any different and thus after my graduation results in BBA were out and I scored 80 percentile marks in them, I applied for the Questrom School of Business. I had found out about the college from some of my senior peers who were already residing in the country at that point in time. After the positive reviews, I received from them about the college, I filled out the common application form, done on the Online portal provided by the college, and the submission of the necessary scanned documents via email. The application fee for my program was $125.

    Course Curriculum :

    Financial Analysis is of paramount importance if you need to survive and prosper in this cut-throat world of competition. With an enhanced program in Financial Technology at Questrom College, we were trained in five main areas of concentration- Asset Management, Financial Technology Tools, Quantitative Analysis, Risk Management and Analytics and Research. In addition to this, the degree program also helped us gain expertise in fields like Credit Risk Modelling, Blockchain and Cryptocurrencies and Derivatives Valuation.

    I opted for this particular college, because I wanted to pursue a double degree course, and mine was MBA+ MA in Economics. One of my cousins had also graduated from this college with the same degree, so my inclination towards the college was quite high. Also, the length of the program that was 5 semesters, helped in taking enough time for the subjects of MBA as well as focus on Economics. I had applied for admission online by paying $125.

    Course Curriculum :

    The program is very apt for the offering degree. The college has ensured that the credit system was distributed between the two degrees opted. It ensured that enough time was available between both for the given period, which helped me work on both separately.
