BA Global Economics and Management | 2014
The Global Economics and Management program taught me soft skills that are quite handy in the business world today. The constant presentations, multiple group projects, and unlimited deadlines prepared me for the corporate world. The transdisciplinary approach prepared me to be able to work in a diverse working environment where mechanical engineers come together with psychologists and software engineers to solve problems.
BA Global Economics and Management | 2013
There are obviously the academic aspects and the more theoretical stuff that we were learning in classes around my major, which was Global Economics and Management. I think it is super relevant to what I do today, which is management as well. I think what prepared me even more than the academics is just the environment here, being able to study with people from more than 100 different countries, live together and kind of grow together. I think that is where my most learning happened and where I really felt “Wow I have so much to give back to the world” and I am really excited to do that.
