“I would say that the most important thing I have learned from school is time management. Juggling [# ] of classes, team working with classmates, keeping with deadlines is much like the work environment. I find that to be successful in academia or the working fields, is to prioritize, turn in complete works, and learn how to efficiently use the time given.”

“I chose to finish and receive my B.A. after 3 years at Boston University’s School of Management. I took summer courses or compiled the extra classes during the regular school year. The remaining year, I dedicated to internship and part-time job experiences. School was an incredible experience that taught me great study habits, expansive knowledge of the world, the technical skills needed to begin my career as an Administration Manager. But I was always a hands-on type of person, and my internships (which I deem as equivalent to education) taught me how to coordinate and direct support services, broadened my understandings regarding the range of duties involved, including payroll, data processing, telecommunications, etc.”
