What is the best thing about being a Bryan School Graduate Student?
The diversity of the students’ and professors’ experiences. This diversity intensifies the learning. As a student you are not merely limited to one way of thinking, there is a great deal to learn from real world experience. Secondly, the creativity of the learning activities provided by the professors is greatly appreciated. It has been some time since I’ve been in school and I was not certain how I would do in a straight lecture environment. However, each of my classes thus far has included different variations of application learning. Whether it is the homework, supplemental reading, team projects, etc., each has helped my learning.

What is the best thing about being a Bryan School Graduate Student?
The resources and mentorship offered through the Bryan School of Business (i.e., library resources, contact information for faculty in various fields of expertise, discounted GRE courses and free Excel courses) are invaluable as a graduate student. Whenever I have a question or concern, I receive a prompt response via email. Each of the CARS faculty I have encountered are easy to reach and have greatly enriched my overall experience. The coursework is demanding but I have already learned so much and know that at the end of the program, my multifaceted MS degree will be a valuable asset to employers.
