What students are saying about the course:

  • " I had a great time in class this year and I learned a lot, and I feel much more prepared to take on the job market than I did this time last semester."
  • "For my full time job, I'll be starting as a management consulting analyst for Accenture, but I'm looking to explore more, and this class definitely helped me position myself to pursue that."
  • "The classroom environment allowed for students to create their own paths and adapt the material to how they saw fit for their own needs. This is how I found myself."
  • I just wanted to let you know that the[recruiter at the] information session that I attended for [class] has just offered me an internship.  I would have never gone to the information session if it was not for your class!  Thank you so much since its my first internship and honestly I did not think I had enough experience to land any internship."
