What did you like best about your time in Bulldog Investment Company?
My favorite part of BIC was how it tied together all of the classes I had already taken and was currently taking for my major. It made every concept much more understandable because everything we did was so "real life".
What did you like least about your time in Bulldog Investment Company?
The learning curve was so incredibly steep. If I didn't understand something, sometimes it could be embarrassing to ask for help. However, if you keep after it you climb the learning curve and concepts that were once foreign become much more comfortable.
Why should current students participate in Bulldog Investment Company?
BIC teaches you to have a different level of engagement in your studies, whether you are a business major or not. Having this type of approach to anything can only help students to differentiate themselves from the so called "herd" and truly have a deeper level of understanding in everything they do.
What aspects of Bulldog Investment Company prepared you for the “real world?”
Dave pulls no punches. Very rarely can you find an individual who invests so much personally into every student and is so honest with the intent being growth. Dave treated me like an adult and was always willing to give me advice or encouragement if I needed it, but he had very definite expectations for my work as well.
How did Bulldog Investment Company help you obtain a job?
I have confidence that my experience in BIC will prove to be a distinguishing factor and will set me apart from other applicants as I continue to search for employment.
If you had all the power in the world to change anything about Bulldog Investment Company—what would it be?
I would prefer that Dave spend some time every semester to refresh theories and equations. Some of the students are younger and haven't necessarily taken all of the classes that the older students have, not to mention the students that are not business majors and have never taken a business class. Besides- it never hurts to refresh.
