After some thought, this is what I have decided to write- the top 3 courses that I loved taking from my college (in specific). It is actually hard to just say only these three helped, but I am not talking about my cognate classes and just focusing from among those that was offered in my college.
2. Advertising and Society by Dr. H: Another grad level class, where it takes your through the 'institution' of advertising and how that changes the way advertising and marketing (overall) plays a role in the society. It is a subject that can be easily made as boring and need not be appreciated by all. Even when we had grad students, mostly very young and sometimes international students. The readings were dense and hard. However, by the time we were done with the class, he made sure each of us appreciated it and understood the way the institution is set up. The assignments were brilliant Surely, yet another best. It changed how I looked at the world.
So, that is the list of my top 3 from my college. There are other course that I loved but they were from a different college, but relevant to my interest. I see a pattern in what I love. I love the concept of marketing and in specific the larger picture of brands and consumer culture. This is one of the reasons why I decided to pursue this interest. I'm glad, I did.
