4 College Senior

Academic Experience: It's some what easy, but hard at the same time. Most professors in the business academy are very good, some are okay. The workload is not a lot, it;s decent. Some or the curriculum are easy to follow, some are hard. The advisers that are part of the business academy are very nice. Every semester during the middle of the semester, there's always a job/internship fair. I've been in to one of the fairs and its fun and interesting. All of the major academies are good, giving opportunities, help, resources and more.

4 College Junior

Academic Experience: Being in the business program at my school, there aren't a lot of clubs that involve business. The classes i need to take for my major are very heavy sometimes, depending on the teacher. I do learn a lot even though sometimes I feel over stressed trying to complete all of the assigned work.

Student Author OverviewWhat's this?

View student contributors

Queensborough is exceptionally experienced when it comes to teaching and building up basic skills. However, since most students' academic knowledge and skill vary, not everyone learns what they expect to in class. Professors spend much of the lecture time on a few specific topics in order to match the students' academic performances. Generally, professors move slow through material, waiting for confused students to ask questions. Therefore, many students are able to catch up or strengthen their academic skills at Queensborough. Unfortunately for students with excellent academic performance, the learning experience might be different because the lecture is never really in-depth or thorough.
