MASTERMINDS BLOG: BENTLEY'S GRAD STUDENTS TELL IT LIKE IT IS
Most recent post
Last week was the orientation week for grad students before the beginning of classes from this week. One of the events during the week as ‘Wisdom Lunch’ which provides an opportunity for new and existing students to sit together over lunch.
Few weeks ago, the GSAS had reached out to existing grad students and I signed had up as a volunteer to be available during the event to speak to new PMBA students. All the other grad programs like BMBA, MSIT, MSA were also there with one or more tables dedicated to each program.
Wisdom is a big word, but what I was able to share was some peer to peer advice about being a grad student at Bentley. I talked about course workload vs work and family; how each professor has a distinct setup for the class and grading; and the option of attending classes online if you are traveling for work. The atmosphere was casual so students can get to know each other and openly ask anything on their minds.
I also shared my semester plan (below) to give an idea of how a typical spread of courses may look like for someone who is working full time. I have enrolled for maximum of 2 classes each semester though it is possible to register for 3 classes (10 credits max).
