So the first time I heard the term “GFIS”, I was like what?? It took me a minute to realize that it was the acronym for my academic program lol (Global Financial Information Systems). I’m kinda glad there’s a nickname for it because it was getting tiring saying the whole thing lol. Anyway… so far I’m loving my graduate program! It’s going on three full weeks of classes and I can see already the value of the program and how much it will help me in my future career. Currently, we’ve been working on creating databases, statistical analysis, project management, and some other topics that I won’t bore you guys with it (even though they are interesting to me). Either way, its great to get to learn something new this year and something that is very applicable to this technological age. It’s also been fun getting to know my classmates. We actually had a Business Graduate Program team-building day, which was great craic (meaning fun for those in the states)! We did a big scavenger hunt that I kinda messed up on, but got the hang of it later on, and some other cool team building games/exercises. Overall, I am very excited for this school year because I obviously can’t get enough of school (I got called a professional student before, which I’m embracing), but I’ll keep you guys updated on how I do in the program.
