Spring 2022


The semester of Spring 2022, is my last semester of college ever. It is so hard for me to even fathom that I have been in college for 4 years, 8 semesters. This semester has been bittersweet because it is a semester of lasts for many things in my college career. Through my final semester, I am in the middle (almost done actually) 5 courses that I believe are going to continue to help improve my skills in the workforce and in the marketing world.

The first course is Strategic Management. Through this course I have really understood the importance of working in a team, being a team leader, and how to make strategic decisions in the world of business. The first half of the semester we partook in a simulation called Capsim. The process of Capsim was difficult because it was so new to everyone involved, but once you did your research and understood the environment of the simulation, you were golden. Through Capsim I was able to build my time management skills and team leading skills.

The next course of my Spring 2022 semester has been Retailing. This course has probably been one of my favorites in my college career. Not just because I love shopping and do it all the time, but because you get to see what builds a store, how merchandising affects consumers, the process of supply chain management and so much more. The class has taught me the basics and how everything has different layers, meaning how much thought is put into each decision.

The next course is Strategic Marketing, This course is basically all of my marketing classes summed into one semester and how to use it in the professional world. This class has prepared me for the marketing world, how to deal with professionals, how to write marketing plans, how to present effectively, and more. This class really solidified my love for marketing and the want to go into the field post-graduating.

Web Designs is the next course in my Spring 2022 Semester schedule. Through this course, I have been able to learn the basics of HTML, CSS, and now WordPress. I enjoy learning new things and this class has not disappointed. I have learned how to make a website, and make it ascetically pleasing, which will help me in my careers in the future.

The last course, is International Business Communications. This class has really made me aware of what is going on in the world around me and has also helped my communication skills in and outside of the classroom. These 5 courses have been challenging at times , but they have all added to my knowledge and will continue to help me in new ventures in my career.
