Student Profile: Bhagyashree Kulkarni
For as long as I can remember, I have wanted to earn a Master of Business Administration. The hard part was deciding in which phase of my life I would resume my education. A gap year from my work made me more aware of my life’s goals, and helped me develop the path to get where I want to be. I was finally ready to begin the process of earning my MBA.
When deciding on a university I was sure to take advice from those who knew me best, but recently I have come to realize that there is only one opinion that matters – and that is your own. Deciding to take admission at VIU was not a decision I entered into lightly. The most important factors for me were location, cost, and the quality of education. VIU had all these factors and also provided another important feature – cross-cultural knowledge. I was also awarded a scholarship for both my academic semesters while studying at VIU, which has only made my experience here easier.
Throughout your school experience, friends and family will be sure to give you a great deal of advice on classes, money, friends and relationships - but think about your decisions. Developing good social at VIU will benefit you in the real world. School is not about cramming for tests and spitting the information back out. It is about retaining actual knowledge that you can use when you are no longer in the classroom.
At VIU you will not be seeing the same people day after day, but will be exposed to a wide variety of people from different family backgrounds, cultures, and countries! VIU provides us with a great opportunity to learn about the world, and you will find that you have things in common with the people you least expect here at VIU!
