Seminar Series

September 25th, 2015 | Uncategorized

At WIT, I am studying to receive my postgraduate degree in Global Financial Information Systems. This course program enables its students to build analytical and financial skills, learn different aspects about organizations, and familiarizes students with software programs. I chose this field of study because my undergraduate degree at William and Mary, which was a major in Economics and a minor in Process Management and Consulting, reflected this program the best. Not only does the course encourage students to develop skills in preparation for the business world, but it puts students in a position to learn other facets and experiences of business through the Seminar Series class.


Every Friday, the WIT postgraduate business program hosts a speaker to come in and discuss their careers ranging from different fields of business. The discussions are not simply facts about the business; they cover topics about entrepreneurships, innovation challenges, importance to constantly reflect on your business actions, and learning tips from their personal journey. The Seminar Series module (class) is exceptional in relation to the idea that it is perfectly fine to not have all of the answers at every moment. Business is ultimately a learning process: learning what to do to be successful, how to remain competitive, learning how to be well rounded or what skills to acquire for growth, etc.  More importantly, the program diversifies its students to become experts in their field of passion as well as learn applicable skills about other business fields.


It is comforting to get an education from a respectable business program where learning is more than tests and papers. WIT is unique from the simple fact that they want students to learn from people and businesses, not strictly textbooks and articles, and excited to be a part of such a great academic institution.
