What did you like best about your time in Bulldog Investment Company?

The fact that I can quickly analyze some key financial ratios for a company and gain an understanding if its a good investment or not is pretty useful. I don't believe any business class I took gave me near comparable knowledge or experience as did Bulldog Investment Company.

Plus, we were treated us as adults and employees. All in all, the experience was as if were were coming to work every Friday between 2 - 4, minus the suits.

What did you like least about your time in Bulldog Investment Company?

The timing of the class was a bit off for college kids. It may be difficult for college kids to gain the desire to want to attend anything on a Friday afternoon. Of course, in the real world, you would still be at work during this time. Once I accepted the sessions being on a Friday, it was much easier.

Why should current students participate in Bulldog Investment Company?

The skills you learn in Bulldog Investment Company are extremely useful, especially in the current economy. My generation won't have much of a social security benefit waiting for us; being able gain a better understanding of investments, even an understanding of a 401K and how important it is to jump into this area as early as possible is explained throughout a student's experience in Bulldog Investment Co. Not many students in this country have such a privilege.

What aspects of Bulldog Investment Company prepared you for the "real world?"

The professionalism during presentations, your treatment of us as employees, and the methods you used to gear our minds (instead of spoon feeding us the whole time).

How did Bulldog Investment Company help you obtain a job?

Bulldog Investment Co. kept me on my toes in terms of professionalism. My presentation skills have grown tremendously and my ability to communicate under pressure has been a big plus.

If you had all the power in the world to change anything about Bulldog Investment Company-what would it be?

Probably the day of the week we meet. Possibly this would allow Bulldog to gain a larger crowd and to strengthen it's presence on campus.
