Why did you choose to continue your education at CUNY SPS?  Why the online BS in Business degree?

I chose to continue my education at CUNY SPS because of affordability and flexibility. 

What was your motivation for returning to school for your bachelor’s degree?

My motivation to return to school is my children.  I want to set a good example for them and continue my education so they can see that they can do it as well when it’s their turn.

Which courses/aspects of the program have you enjoyed most thus far?

The programs that I have enjoyed the most have been Business Math 201 and English 331.  The classes were very easy to follow, so I enjoyed them very much.  I was able to focus on the readings and the assignments.

I would like to own my own business in the near future so that is why I chose a degree in business administration.

What’s the greatest piece of advice you’ve received while at CUNY SPS?

The greatest advice I have received at CUNY SPS is not to give up on your dreams and that you are never too old to achieve a degree.

What advice would you offer someone considering applying for admission to your program or to someone who is juggling a family, school, and other obligations?

One piece of advice I would give someone who is considering applying to my degree program is to give yourself enough time to apply to your courses.  Don’t leave your assignments to last minute, you will find yourself falling behind and loaded with work.

I plan on opening an online woman’s clothing store.
