Learning Center Experience
Ever wondered what it is
like to be a financial analysis student at Kaplan University’s School of
Business and Information Technology? Rotunda McDowell—a Bachelor of Science in Business Administration student—shares
her unique experience and insight into the program.
Why did you choose a career focus area in financial
One of the reasons I
chose to focus in financial analysis is because of my previous work experience.
My employer at a former company gave me the opportunity to train on the
financial aspects of the business because he thought I was a bright individual
and could be successful. I also chose the field after I was offered a position
at my last job as the accountant for the accounts payable group. I knew that an
education would help further my career and offer more knowledge in the field.
What are your professional goals at the moment?
My professional and
personal goals are all in the same for me. In 2006, I started a non-profit
agency to help the homeless and those in need of housing assistance. My goal is
to understand and run the business side of this organization so that it can be
operationally and financially successful.
What has been your biggest challenge as a
Balancing work, home,
and school is tough, but it can be done. I started attending Kaplan University in
2010 as a full time parent, student, and employee. At the time, my daughter was
in high school, and participated in marching band and counsel activities. I
wanted to support her and be there for her during her last three years of high
school. I worked a full time job that I had been with for eight years and had month-end
closings to meet as well as day to day work and meetings to attend. Most of the
time, I studied late at night into the mornings to complete my assignments. Weekends
were also busy with football games, studying, and sometimes working, but I
somehow balanced it out with the help of the flexible class times offered at
Kaplan University. Personal organization really made a difference for me.
What are you most proud of as a student?
As of this month, I have
little less than one year left before graduation. Many ups and downs have
happened along the way: sickness, loss of a job, death, and stress, but I am
still holding on and pressing towards my graduation date. I made the Dean's
List during my August 2012 semester with a 3.77 grade point average thanks to the
support of Professor Jerry Taylor. He is
the greatest teacher that I have encountered at this University. I am a
stronger student and candidate for the business world because of dedicated teachers
