"It gave me insight into the world of business that we students don't know about. I think I got really valuable information about the world that people don't really tell us."


"You don't know who you are going to meet and what possibilities might come. We are all in school and trying to go somewhere further. I am just inspired."

It was an asset to take the class because I can take [the information] anywhere I go."
