Olga Arshinova: I am an international student at the University of Delaware; I come from Azerbaijan.

If I think about an event where a professor or class that made an impact to me – one class that clearly stands out – it was professor Jack Baroudi’s class, Leadership Development. I took it online, and I was very skeptical at first because it was my first online class. But I really enjoyed it because Professor Baroudi offered us one-on-one leadership coaching over the semester, which gave me great experience. It was not only learning but also getting feedback from my reputable and very smart professor that gave me the skills I will be using in the future.
