Just started my second semester, Junior year, at St. John’s U. I’m taking 18 credits, thats six 3-credit courses, and I’m still behind in my expected graduation date.
>Monday evening is my Consumer Behavior course with Dr. Kavil. I took a course with him last semester and was impressed with how he integrated teamwork into the Intro. class we were taking. This semester he plans to push us through group projects and a few classmate dependant case studies! I’m excited to see all that he will introduce to us.
>Tuesdays and Thursdays are my 9-am to 9-pm with a break for lunch and a break for dinner days. I start off with Export-Import Mktg which so far seems really cool as I want to concentrate on international business.
Next is Operations & Product Mgmt. Dr. Chao has had a full-life and he always tries to give us real input from what he has learned and experienced. I break for lunch, which is usually spent mostly in the computer lab doing homework or writing this post 8-).
After lunch I proceed to Mgmt Information Systems. I don’t really know what to expect from this course. I read up on the course description and it is meant to be:
"An investigation of principles governing the design, testing, and implementation of business procedures and information systems within the framework of computerized environment."
The professor is a very knowledgable and experienced business-woman working for JPMorgan. I like that she is very open in offering us tips, tricks, and real advise on landing those key positions in our respective industries.
I am taking a required english course, I believe it is called Global Literature. The professor is very upfront and clear on what he expects from his students. I plan on improving my writing abilities here.
My last class is Stats 2 at 7pm. I had taken the Stats 1 class last semester with the same professor so I am looking forward to a good grade.
