The Netherlands

Began her studies for an MBA in 2003

"After spending a semester here for undergrad, I decided to return from the Netherlands to pursue my MBA in general management. I really enjoy the general management track because I feel like you get the chance to learn a little about every aspect of business. However, it isn't like learning a little about every course in undergrad. You are expected to already have a basis in all the subjects and you dive in much further. From my experience, I feel that I have benefited in the area of finance the most. Not being an undergrad major in finance, I really didn't feel like I knew a whole lot on the subject, however, these skills are highly demanded in today's workforce. Finance is emphasized very strongly in the MBA program and I have been afforded the opportunity to really prepare myself for the workforce in the aspect. Additionally, I love the small program size that Southeast offers its students. It allows for very high interaction between professors and students on an educational, professional and social level. Of course that student-teacher relationship exists, however, many professors look to their graduate assistants for advice in certain areas and we also interact outside of the college through MBA social events. This type of interaction provides both in-class and out-of-class learning, as well as networking opportunities."
