As a business school student, the majority of my classes tend to be math based or history based. Although learning equations and discussing historical trends and incidents are important I have found Management 304 to be a unique chance to take the historical perspectives and economic lessons that I have learned and apply them to the world today. When I was seven years old my family was scheduled to move to London for three years because of my father’s job. As a test run my family lived there for one summer. We loved London and city life so as a family we were so excited about our future move to the city. However, just a few months before our moving date some things changed in the office and my father was needed in New York instead.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
