    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.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    Business 101 gives you the major foundations of what is involved in the business world. It gives you a glimpse of finance, accounting, and marketing. Professors do a very fine job of helping you understand the content, and applying that content into the coursework. Also, with this course you will get to practice building a strong business mindset through projects and papers.

    Course highlights:

    This course not only increased my knowledge about the business world, but also taught me many life lessons that is crucial for making it through our world today. For example, my professor would repeat every class, "It's not what you say, but how you say it." This was definitely the most important piece of advice he gave us. The course also gives many opportunities to build our business image as individuals. We had a few presentations that allowed us to practice those skills. For example, the Six Minute Pitch allowed us to present a new business idea within six minutes, and the goal was to impress the professor enough to invest in the idea. It was similar to the show "Shark Tank". Over all, you learn many useful skills in this course, not just what stocks and bonds are.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Go to class, and participate. Get to know your professor, they will become your biggest ally. They are a contact you have for the future, they are also there to help you get through the course, and if they know you name, and see that you are an active member of the class, they will adore you, and your grade will be affected.
