Low student-professor ratio makes GIS stand out. It encourages you to express your own opinion, work in a team and challenge the status quo. Those skills helped me a lot working with clients as a business consultant.
GIS made me see the importance of social responsibility. I learned the causes of disparities and possible solutions. Now I’m working for a plant engineering company, trying to make the world better through energy.
GIS gives you a competitive advantage. I gained necessary skills for working effectively in the steel industry. With a wide range of knowledge, I could understand recent trends and find market opportunities.
Supporting sales for Epson America, Inc., my work requires communication skills, and GIS helped that. As most classes have discussions and presentations, they taught me how important working with other people is.
Four years in GIS has you rethink what it is to acquire English language. Class interaction and opinions from different perspectives all helped me in becoming a teacher.
In grad school I have to do many readings and think critically. I couldn’t manage my studies if not for previous experiences in GIS. It taught me how to best engage with class material and to not fear being inquisitive.
GIS’s uniqueness not only comes from the all-English curriculum but also from a sophisticated environment that encourages critical thinking. It paved the way to graduate school in the UK, helping me get a master’s degree.
