Journal Entry #1

What were your three favorite things about this course and why?

I feel so blessed to be taking a business course in 2016. The technology that I am learning will allow me to be a better innovator in the work force. A lot of companies are still stuck in their old ways and I know that by taking this course I will be able to bring a new perspective to the table. The second thing I absolutely love about this course is that it’s hands on rather than just lecture. I learn by doing rather than by taking notes and hoping I can study effectively enough to pass the tests. I love that it’s taught by two professor rather than just one. It’s never a dull moment in the class and I can tell the business department is pretty impressed with the way you both are teaching this class. Finally, the third thing I love about this course is my group. We are an eclectic bunch and we actually become pretty good friends. We help each other out when we can, we meet outside of class on our own accord and work together to get group work done. 

What would you change if there was something you could about this course?

As valuable as learning how to use Excel, I’m a little concern with the lack of mathematics that is being taught. I may be old fashioned and probably putting my foot in my mouth but I’m nervous for my future courses involving math. Will I be up to par with the rest of the class?
