A year and a half I have entered into many student organizations related to business, including the famous "Pi Sigma Epsilon". Because of this, I learned a lot about the world of business and fell in love with this industry. After a couple of meetings with the supervisor and career Advisor of the University, I decided to transfer to the Faculty of Business and Innovation and to choose a program with dual specialization in Informatics and management".
Was it difficult to do? "No, it took less than half an hour in the office of the supervisor. She also advised me on what subjects I need to choose to gain the necessary number of credits and time to degree. Whatever your specialty — business, technical science or music — the staff of the University of Toledo will not give you a waste of time and money."
