Reed Hasson - MiM Classes During COVID
Virtual Tours by Students
The following is an computer-generated summary of the video transcript.
I started this program August 2020 so all my classes started off online but slowly shifted back towards in person. Right now I have my firm analysis and strategy class in person, which is really great to kind of have that sense of normalcy and be back on a campus that I utterly love. All of the libraries and re sources have been open for graduate students, so it's been a great way to get out of the house. Georgetown has offered we work access for all of its students, so I'm able to hop around different locations and take classes there and also study at those locations, which has been, honestly, a great incentive to keep up with all of the work that I have to do. I think that I'm a very practical person, and just by learning the step by step and analytical framework necessary for accounting, I think will be very useful because no matter what field I will go into, having the ability to understand a financial document or do some basic accounting will be imperative. I think that the type of student that would really thrive in this program is one that likes to speak up in class and isn't afraid of taking risks. There are so many group projects throughout this program that I think being ableto work with another team is imperative to success. We started off our program with a leadership strategy team where we essentially broke up into groups. For one intensive week we talked about what makes a good leader and coached the other people on our team, how they could be better leaders themselves. Then over the course of that semester after that week, we gave speeches to our team and they critiqued every little detail of how we could improve as public speaker. I think that someone should be able to speak up in class, be a good team player and be not afraid to take risks. All in all, saying a Georgetown to pursue my masters and management has been a great decision toe really hone in on what I want to do while having the career resource is to do so and also gaining those imperative financial and analytical skills that will be imperative.
