Morten Rasmussen

Kingdom of Denmark

Began his studies for an MBA in 2001

I chose Southeast upon several criteria. First and foremost the university was recommended to me by former MBA students, which really made me interested in the first place. After further research I found the MBA program to be highly qualified, especially due to the MBA program’s world recognized AACSB-Accreditation. Also the small classes, which give high student interaction and many discussions with professors, had high priority for me. Furthermore, the opportunity of getting a Graduate Assistantship, and thereby solid economic basis also influenced my final decision. However, a Graduate Assistantship not only gives you a stipend, but also great working experiences in various working areas.

I chose the US for my master’s degree, because the country is leading in many areas and set standards in many ways. I also wanted to experience a dynamic, International culture and get the opportunity to meet people from many different countries. These expectations have certainly been met as approximately 40 percent of the students in the MBA program are international students.

I have gained tremendously from my stay at southeast and in the states, both academically, personally and through my Graduate Assistantship in the University’s Public Services department. Obviously, I can only signify Southeast’s slogan: Experience Southeast, Experience Success!
