Gitte Gliese Amstrup
The Kingdom of Denmark
Began her studies for an MBA in 2001
My choice to attend Southeast Missouri State University was based on recommendations from other Danish students who had enjoyed their time in the MBA program at Southeast. They described the nice atmosphere in the program with the small class room sizes, a good student faculty relationship, as well as a fine social interaction between students. I must say that the University has met all of these expectations!
I wanted to study abroad as a way to experience other cultures, and Southeast, with its broad base of International students, provide a great opportunity not only to experience the American culture but also to learn about other cultures around the world. The diversified student base in the MBA program adds tremendously to the experience both in the class room and outside of the class room.
Overall, there is no doubt that coming to Southeast to complete my MBA was the right choice. Most of my classes have provided very valuable insights to the business world. I have enjoyed the combined teaching methods of lectures, class discussions, case assignments, and teamwork. In addition, I have been privileged to be able to apply some of my knowledge through a Graduate Assistantship, which has also provided a solid financial support. I am convinced that my experience here at Southeast will be a tremendous support throughout my future career!
