Student Testimonials

Name: Nikita Ptchelka
From: Belarus
Studied: Financial Management, MBA

Pace University professors are really great at connecting what we’re leaning in class to real life. In Managerial Marketing, we created marketing plans for 3 real New York City firms. It was a great experience to meet the directors of these companies and to present our thoughts on how they could improve their marketing strategies. And my microeconomics professor is just amazing at applying the theories we learn in class to real world problems. Now when I read the news, I understand what is happening on a much deeper level.
