Back on the school grind as we started the second semester this week. This semester seems like it will be a little more difficult as we are taking Finance for Managers, HR, Innovation and Entrepreneurship, Strategy and Marketing Management, Operations Management, Information for Management Decision Making, and a class that will prepare us for our Internship project. The great thing about a couple of these classes is that real companies are coming into our class, giving us a spiel on their business plan and then we are working on ways to improve their business plans based on the course we are taking. It is nice that in a field such as business we are working more on case studies instead of focusing just on theories.
My fellow scholars had a good time laughing at me during one of our classes. The three of us were doing group work and the professor came over to get to know us. He went on to ask Caroline and Matt what part of the States they were from. Of course he assumed I was Irish and did not ask me what city in the US I was from. The best part was that I was wearing a USA t-shirt and he still thought I was a local. Needless to say, Matt and Caroline cracked up when the teacher moved on to another group and they realized he thought I was Irish.
