When informed that I’d be one of the Graduate Student Ambassadors for 2011-2012, I was very excited (and to be honest – nervous too, although just a little bit). It is exciting because this position gives me an opportunity to share and express my views/experiences, which hopefully will be helpful for current/new/prospective students in Albers Business School.
In the beginning of 2011, I started taking classes at Seattle U. At first, I wasn't sure if getting into a business school and obtaining MBA were the right decisions for me. However, after spending two quarters being a part of the community, I'm very glad I chose the right school. I knew I chose the right school for me because I gained more knowledge in different business areas (accounting and finance for example), improved my people skill, and most importantly, I enjoyed the time I spent with classmates & faculties both inside and outside the class room. I honestly could not imagine myself studying anywhere else and still receiving the same rewarding experience that I've had so far.
Seattle U and Albers have so many things to offer to their students, such as strategic location, flexible schedule, attentive faculty members, classmates with diverse backgrounds, and other valuable attributes. Although, I have yet to experience most if not all of the opportunities offered, I look forward to 2011-2012 academic year and to share my experiences here in the blog. I also strongly encourage everyone (current/new/prospective students) to learn about the graduate resources/opportunities that Albers have here
Since I am not taking any classes this summer, I will have more time to enjoy the two months of sun that Seattle will have; I will still be on campus several days a week and if you happen to see me in Albers or somewhere else, please say Hi!
Finally, I wish everyone a great summer and stay tuned for more updates from PJ and I.
