Virtual Tours by Students
The following is an computer-generated summary of the video transcript.
Hi. My name is Edward already, and I'm an NBA candidate. The European School of Management Technology more commonly and more easily known as SMT Berlin. I did my undergraduate studies at California Polytechnic State University in San Luis Obispo. Now I'm currently living in the neighborhood. S and P is in the same neighborhood, attended to as well. I'm about 15 to 20 minutes walk along the river spree to campus Classes are currently remote, but thankfully the campus is still open. So their study rooms available for students like myself. I can walk to campus, I can see some of my classmates, and I know I just grab our own study rooms and take classes from each individual study room. Mm. So the reason why I showed the SMT was number one. To the small class, size is a really great um, there's only about 50 students in our entire cohort, but it's a very diverse class as well. So over 20 different countries are represented in those just over 50 students, which has been really nice given the pandemic that the classes so small. So even though I haven't been able to meet everybody in person yet, um, I still feel pretty close to the majority of my class. There's my study group who I've only met two of them in person so far, and I still feel really close to hold them. So I'm glad that class size is so small, given the current conditions. Then the last reason for me was I really wanted quick one year accelerated program. It's been difficult at times and it's only been a couple of months so far. I just didn't feel comfortable taking a long time away from work. I wanted to get my business degree and then get back into the working world as soon as possible, and so SMD really offers. So like I said, it's only been about two months, have already taken three finals and it's been a really good experience for me so far. I think my favorite class so far has been Data analytics for managers. Um, and for me, coming from a technical background, it's been really cool to see how the two worlds kind of combined how the Data Analytics side gets used in the business world. So I really appreciate getting that insight that I didn't have before. I'm looking forward to doing more videos and showing you more about the SMT. More about Berlin and more just about anything I find interesting and exciting about being a candidate here.
