"I loved taking Business classes at De Anza because most teachers seemed genuinely interested in helping their students succeed. And I really just wanted to say that you were one of my favorite professors at De Anza, and your Intro class really helped me find one of my passions." - BUS10 student
"I just got the email from Columbia today, and I can't wait to share the news with you. I have been admitted to Columbia University. Your introductory business class helped me to decide on my major, and I am more defined and with a passion for pursuing a career in the field of business. You are more than a professor but a mentor to me. Your success stories inspired me to decide not to limit to UC application, but also to apply to one of the ivy league schools. I am glad I explored the opportunity and took the chance." - BUS10 student
"I was accepted into all UCs, USC Mashall School, Emory, and Boston University, and decided to attend Berkeley Haas School to finish my BS in Business Administration. I want to thank you for all your help during the stressful application season, your amazing lectures and organized class structure." - BUS10 student
