    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I definitely recommend the BUSN 101 course with Christopher Finnin. So far it has been my favorite class since I started school (yes, since the first grade), as it does not only teach you the memorizing, definition part of the business, but it actually makes us learn about business through interactive, real-life applications.

    Course highlights:

    The course gave me confidence to speak up, share my thoughts, and just take action. It made me think of myself not only as an usual college student, but as a future business leader. Loved the diversity of activities, and the learning process.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Stay on track with all the work, try different learning methods, talk to people about the concepts learned, and ALWAYS think about what you learn as applied in the real world.

    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    BUSN 101 is the required introduction to business course at Drexel University. I was in the honors section with Professor D'Angelo. The honors section of BUSN 101 differs from regular sections in that it is a smaller class size (18-22 students) and is more discussion based than lecture based. Dana is a very fair professor who is very understanding and flexible. Beyond this, she is very knowledgeable​ and is such a great point of contact for all things in LeBow.

    Course highlights:

    The most important things that we learned in Business 101 were the major functions of business. Many students enter LeBow as a general business major- but you'll likely have a much better idea of what you want to do after taking this course.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    The best piece of advice I can give is to read the chapters of the textbook in entirety. There are highlighted sections in the e-book that are more relevant, but if you skip the unhighlighted sections, you will miss out on a lot of basic business ideas. Additionally, the exams in this section are open-ended, so make sure that you can communicate the business ideas in long form text. Otherwise, you should participate in class discussions and keep up on business-related news.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would definitely recommend this course. It goes over the basics of various kinds of business such as marketing, finance, accounting, and more. You also get experience from doing projects such as the Six-Minute Pitch Competition, creating resumes, and working on case studies.

    Course highlights:

    During this course, I have learned, in-depth, some of the basic fundamentals of business. We focused on some major components of business such as marketing, accounting, and finance, while working on case studies and various projects. The Six-Minute Pitch, one of the greatest highlights of this course, allows us to form groups and create a "new and innovative idea" to pitch to the class in six minutes. The best in each class moves on to a university-wide competition.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    My tips to succeed in this class are to do the practice problems often so you can get a good standing on the subject you are learning. They are similar to the online homeworks, yet are not graded for your final grade. They are only their to improve your knowledge on the subject and have a better understanding of the concepts.
