University of Richmond
(Robins school of business)
Ten years ago, I set a goal for myself to graduate from a first-rate university. After growing up just outside of Boston, I had a strong desire to explore a different part of the country — so I enrolled at the University of Richmond, known for its exceptional business program. With graduation now on the horizon I am grateful for the quality education I have received here, and I’m proud of my school’s performance in recent national rankings:
- In this year's US News and World Report's "Best College 2018" rankings, the University of Richmond came in at #23.
- In Poets&Quants' "Best Undergraduate Business Programs of 2017", the Robins School of Business is listed at #21
In addition to my Business Administration major, my interests led me to a concentration in Marketing and a minor in Anthropology. The importance of this crossover between business and the social sciences has become increasingly apparent to me. My favorite classes have been Market Research and Analysis, Anthropology of Tourism, and Sports Marketing.
Copenhagen Business School
As a Sophomore in the Spring of 2016, I was accepted into the Copenhagen Business School (CBS) located in Denmark, for a semester beginning the following semester (Fall 2017). CBS consistently ranks in the top 15 business schools worldwide. This was an extremely enriching experience for me for a couple of reasons. First, CBS (~23,000 students) is nearly the exact opposite of the University of Richmond (~4,000 students). Additionally, it was exciting to hear the opinions of students from countries all over the world. It fascinated me learning about the different perspectives students had regarding any given topic and the different academic experiences students had throughout their life.
