Andrade tried several majors before finding one she was interested in and satisfied the prerequisites for medical school.
“My final change to Biomedical Science and Enterprise was exactly what I needed,” Andrade said. “I’ve benefited from smaller class sizes, unique courses and getting a head start on learning about business. I learned how to read academic writing. I believe that the major also had a large focus on career readiness. After taking the careers class, I had everything I needed to know to pursue opportunities in this field.”
“Finally, I found Biomedical Sciences and Enterprise, which just felt like an excellent fit for me,” Hall said. “I chose BMSC because it was interdisciplinary. I felt like I would have exposure to more than one path in the sciences. I liked that it was a bit of entrepreneurship, law, business and science. I also liked that I could tailor the classes to fit my needs and interests.”
The degree program offered classes that will help Hall fulfill her entrepreneurial dreams.
“I took several entrepreneurship courses and business courses for entrepreneurs,” Hall said. “These courses were very helpful in getting me to think about what would be needed for my private practice and what things I would need in place before even pursuing that. I’ve learned a great deal about the basics such as entity type, how to prepare a business model, how to validate that business model, contracts needed to protect my business and so much more.”
