CBE Grads in the Workforce: Ty Deschamp
Last spring, we asked some of our soon-to-be graduates to describe their CBE experience and to tell us about their plans following their May 2008 graduation. These are their stories.
Please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org and let us know where you are and what you are doing.
"The best thing about my experience at the CBE has been getting to know so many different people. We have a fairly diverse group of students and faculty in the CBE and I have enjoyed very much being able to meet all of them. I think it is also a rare experience to be able to say that I know all of the professors I’ve had over the last four years on a first name basis. The U of I is large enough to provide a great education, however it is small enough to provide a personal experience. In addition to the people I have met, I also feel the business education I’ve received has been excellent. I verified this feeling last summer during my internship with a group of professional systems analysts, where I discovered that I understood much of the business jargon and the business problems they were trying to solve. When going through classes it is sometimes difficult to understand the true value of the education you are receiving, but when you experience firsthand the benefits of your education, it puts everything into perspective.
