Oh yes, I passed the finals!


Oh yes, I passed the finals!

I’ve received a few messages asking if I had passed the last exam and then I realized I didn’t clearly stated that: yes I did it. Now, even if I wait for the Diploma (they’ll send it to my Italian address), I’m an official graduate: Bachelor of Science in Business Administration at the University of the People. You know how much this means to me and how do I feel after chasing my dream for more than 15 years; Continue reading

The Gini index, poverty and access to education.


I often say: “I love Economics” and I see this statement causes jaw dropping effects, because it sounds weird. During my experience at the Uopeople I studied the Gini index, that represented one of my favorite subjects, particularly during the courses of “Microeconomics”, “Macroeconomics” and “Principles of Economics”. This index helps to understand social inequalities and the distribution of wealth, it ranges from 0 to 1; specifically, a fair result is in proximity of 0. I checked the situation of my Country and I compared it to others; I even checked the political Government that ruled at that times and I got a general idea of those who increased the inequalities or, in the contrary, performed better.

The Gini index is the result you get after  Continue reading

The fifth week at Uoepeople and the last hectic years

Last Monday I was talking to the brightest light in my life, my Mentor Mindy, when she asked about the topics we will discuss during our next Skype meeting. I always act like if I were in symbiosis with her, because I know I can listen to her, while also act like she does; normally, she does the right thing. Unfortunately, my mind was unexpectedly empty, so that I’ve hesitated a few seconds, then I’ve recognized the “from week 5 to the exam” typical burned mood. Yes, because Continue reading

University of the people, the method, how it works, examples of its validity

I arrived at the decision to write this article about the “method” University of the People uses, after receiving messages from everywhere, asking for such peculiarity. As a student who has almost finished her path, I know how this process works, by virtue of the fact I personally experienced that, during the past five years. As a consequence, I can show proof of its advantage as well as their application; simultaneously, I will inform you about some researches, including a confirmation of what I’ve been saying all along. Debbie Time, an American graduate of the University of the People, contributes to this article.

Point of departure: the method of University of the People is extremely different from traditional ones; consequence: people all around the world compare it with their own.

It’s time to have a Mentor when..The University of the People Mentorship program

It’s time to have a Mentor when you notice some warning signs:

  • you mix your native language with English
  • you ask your daughter: “how do we say that in Italian?”
  • little crumbs immerse your keyboard
  • you don’t remember the last time you ate at the kitchen table
  • you don’t mind all those strange people going back and forwards from home; oh yes, that’s my family!
  • There’s a little voice yapping away and saying: “why are you working so hard?”. However, you don’t know the answer.

The Principles of marketing course at Uopeople

I have been working for many years, before starting my studies at Uopeople. While studying, I was running my job and my family. Along the years I tackled many topics: college algebra, psychology, basic accounting or biology.. Knowledge allowed the comparison between past and present; most of all, I put the concepts into practice. Now, it’s like living two lives at once. The bottom-up method is a pillar in our education; we start from real cases, then we develop a solution. Our textbooks triggered our curiosity, particularly the one we used during the Principles of marketing course [Principles of Marketing, flatworld knowledge]. Its authors explained marketing and used examples we have close at hand: IPhone, Coca Cola, Ikea, Walmart, Swarowsky and many others. Definitely: marketing is  Continue reading
