My name is Mario Adnan, and I'm a current student, Georgetown University and a master's in management program, and I am here to give you all the unsolicited advice as a future graduates. Somebody's gone through the program, and I'm here to help you shaker out. All the things that you might have lingering in your mind is an applicant or somebody that's been admitted into the program. So the question that we get asked a lot is what is the work looks like? Um, to give it to you straight. It is an accelerated program, so imagine it to your program. There's certainly a lot of classes, and there's a lot of workload, but it's manageable. Um, you are given classes in a strategic way that you'll get introductory material and you'll figure out the ways to think as a business executive, which is something really necessary to tackle all the analytical classes with a heavy classes that you have been lodged two and three, Um, something I will definitely say is the class load that you get is necessary, and the types of classes you get is necessary to be successful in the business world or as an executive in in any sort of discipline, really, you get financial skills, accounting skills, strategy, e con consulting, communications, business skills, all of these types of things that are necessary to be, um, an executive today. So it certainly gives you a lot of real world, um, opportunity. So somebody that's considering this program, I certainly would tell them that even if you aren't from a, you know, quant focused, business focused or stem designated undergraduate program, don't worry. Don't feel like you're not prepared or you're going to fail or anything like that because I myself came from, uh, communications and business. Even though I had some of those quantitative skills, I certainly didn't have them enough that I would consider myself an expert at all. I felt hesitant when I was coming to the program because of all of these analytical and quant focus classes. Certainly I will say after experiencing a majority of them that it's designed in a way to give you the critical thinking abilities and the introductory materials and core concepts that are needed to do well. So if you are from a discipline that's really stem focused or plant focused, don't worry. You're going to have a lot of introductory material and you'll figure all of the material out and you'll realize that it's not. So even if you don't have four years of experience in undergrad like, do not worry, you're gonna do just fine. Mhm. I think when you're considering a graduate program, you really want something that's going to translate well into the real world today, and I think that's why you're really you're considering this program. Where you been admitted into this program is because of that really recent and or for the projects that we do in class, you will have a great portfolio to present a future employer or um, presenting your job after this program. Whether it's our com classes, you'll get opportunity to do ethical memos or, um, press releases. Whether it's our finance classes, you'll do a lot of cases where it's necessary to how to evaluate financially affirm, and you'll have the formulas there in the concepts there. To do that in the real world and whatever firm you become a part of, whether it's Nikon and firm analysis and strategy, you'll gain all the skills necessary to evaluate affirm both economically and from a differentiation standpoint. If it's stats or programming or are you will have a lot of that code already there. You'll know how to translate it into the real world. So whatever the discipline, maybe whether it's humanities focused, more tech, heavy or or quantum stem focused, you have a lot of opportunity there to build a portfolio. I certainly know now in the, um, you know, in the job market now I'm looking at positions where I can actually read them and understand. If they ask me anything, I'll just look back at that assignment and I'll know what they require and what they're asking for. If you feel like you might not have gotten that an undergrad, don't worry. All of these classes are translatable into the real world today, so you'll get all of that. So for those of you that are really focused in on technology and innovation, um, the program obviously stem designated, so you'll get a lot of know how with programming languages, um, such as our. I'm not sure if you guys are doing SQL or Python, but you'll do one or the other. Um, so certainly you gain technology focused languages through there. Otherwise, the cases that we do there's a lot of tech centric or innovative companies in our global business experience. You get to do consulting project with a company in one of those areas I'm personally working on one within augmented and virtual reality companies. So certainly there is no lack of technology and innovation there. If you even want to gain further understanding of those fields, um, later on in the Mods in Mods for I believe you'll be able to get some time to choose your electives. They're certainly all focused into technology and innovation. Whether it's fintech, whether it's entrepreneurship, whether it's further into programming, you have so many options there that will further, um, that underlying principle of technology and innovation within the program. You need a little bit of understanding that you might not have had originally. Uh, you gained a little bit more insight into what the Masters and Management program is all about.
