HR Management
Мне всег­да нра­вилось ра­ботать с людь­ми, по­это­му еще в шко­ле я оп­ре­дели­ла для се­бя эту сте­зю. Это, дей­стви­тель­но, очень ин­те­рес­но по­нять внут­ренние цен­ности че­лове­ка, его стрем­ле­ния, це­ли. По­нима­ние лю­дей есть ключ к дос­ти­жению эф­фектив­ности их ра­боты. Далее…

Университет Брауна (Brown University)

Рас­по­ложен­ный в Про­виден­се (40 ми­нут от Бос­то­на), в сто­лице са­мого ма­лень­ко­го аме­риканс­ко­го шта­та Род-ай­лан­де, уни­вер­си­тет Бра­уна был ос­но­ван в 1764 го­ду и по­лучил свое наз­ва­ние от фа­милии двух сво­их ос­но­вате­лей, ко­торые при­над­ле­жали этой бо­гатой семье. Лю­дей, свя­зан­ных с этим уни­вер­си­тетом при­нято на­зывать Бра­уни­тяна­ми (Bru­noni­ans). С 1969 го­да в уни­вер­си­тете от­ка­зались от кре­дит­ной сис­те­мы оце­нок, и за­дания кур­са ста­ли оце­нивать­ся толь­ко как за­чет/не­зачет. Тра­дици­он­ная сис­те­ма грей­ди­рова­ния с ее оцен­ка­ми (А,B,C,D), плю­сами и ми­нуса­ми бы­ла тор­жест­вен­но от­верг­ну­та. Уни­вер­си­тет по сей день ис­по­веду­ет этот под­ход.

Стать од­ним из 8000 сту­ден­тов-бра­уни­тян край­не слож­но – так в 2010 го­ду про­цент при­нятых со­ис­ка­телей сос­тавлял лишь 14% от об­ще­го чис­ла. Фи­нан­со­вая по­лити­ка уни­вер­си­тета не пред­по­лага­ет ссу­ды и фи­нан­со­вую по­мощь для сту­ден­тов, се­мей­ный до­ход ко­торых пре­выша­ет 100 тыс. дол­ла­ров, что, в свою оче­редь, де­ла­ет ре­аль­ным по­луче­ние сти­пен­дии для боль­шинс­тва ка­захс­тан­ских сту­ден­тов. Не­об­хо­димо пос­ту­пить в уни­вер­си­тет и за­пол­нить Fi­nan­ci­al aid app­li­cati­on. По­лучить пол­ное фи­нан­со­вое пок­ры­тие обу­чения край­не ак­ту­аль­но, учи­тывая, что уче­ба в этом уни­вер­си­тете од­на из са­мых до­рогих в ми­ре.

В уни­вер­си­тете пре­пода­ют­ся мно­жест­во ин­те­рес­ных дис­циплин, в том чис­ле би­оло­гия, ис­то­рия, меж­ду­народ­ные от­но­шения, егип­то­логия и ма­тема­тика. Сре­ди зна­мени­тых про­фес­со­ров сын Ни­киты Хру­щева — Сер­гей Хру­щев, Ро­мано Про­ди и Бар­рет Ха­зел­тайн. Пос­ледний в свои 81 яв­ля­ет­ся од­ним из са­мых по­пуляр­ных и лю­бимых сту­ден­та­ми пре­пода­вате­лем. Он ра­бота­ет за сим­во­личес­кий 1 дол­лар в ме­сяц и тра­дици­он­но со­бира­ет бо­лее 500 сту­ден­тов на свои лек­ции по при­нятию уп­равлен­ческих ре­шений.

Уни­вер­си­тет прив­ле­ка­ет мно­жест­во иност­ран­ных сту­ден­тов – сын бит­ла Джорд­жа Хар­ри­сона, Да­ни (Dha­ni Har­ri­son), в нас­то­ящее вре­мя так­же яв­ля­ет­ся сту­ден­том уни­вер­си­тета Бра­уна. Кро­ме это­го здесь час­то про­ходят не­фор­маль­ные лек­ции (прак­ти­чес­ки ежед­невно) из­вест­ных уче­ных, де­яте­лей ис­кусств и по­лити­ков, дос­тупно час­тичное обу­чение в дру­гих уни­вер­си­тетах США и Ев­ро­пы по об­ме­ну.

Wel­co­me to Brown!

You are pro­bab­ly won­de­ring if no re­qu­ire­ment thing is re­al­ly true? Shoc­king­ly, it is! Brown is li­ke a «to­ken co­ol ma­ma» of the Ivy Le­ague’s. It’s fun, la­id back and lets you do wha­tever you want!

Will: Most scho­ols ha­ve so­mekind of co­re, cur­ri­culum or Ge­nEd. The­re’s no­ne of that!

Alan­na: I re­al­ly li­ke the idea that, you know, I was tho­ught of be­ing old eno­ugh and ma­ture eno­ugh to pick my own clas­ses and re­ali­zed that I had so­me auto­nomy in what I wan­ted to le­arn when I went to col­le­ge

And if that’s not eno­ugh, for­get your As, Bs, and Cs! You can gra­du­ate from Brown ha­ving ta­ken eve­ry class Pass/Fa­il!

Pass/Fa­il is awe­some!

Ches­ter: If you just get Pass in a Pass/Fa­il co­ur­se, it do­esn’t sway your GPA in eit­her di­rec­ti­on. It’s anot­her cre­dit that you’ve ear­ned, but you are on your way to get­ting your deg­ree.

Pr. Ha­zel­ti­ne: The pe­op­le aren’t in­ti­mida­ted by a fi­eld, es­pe­ci­al­ly a fi­eld far re­moved from the­ir ma­jor in­te­rests. It’s an op­portu­nity for them to ta­ke a chan­ce.

Sho­uld all be af­ra­id to ta­ke a class you know ab­so­lute­ly not­hing abo­ut?

Now, even tho­ugh Brown might se­em li­ke a ca­kewalk, re­mem­ber, it is Ivy Le­ague!

So all the stu­dents are de­fini­tely free thin­kers, they are not slac­kers.

Ja­mes: Pe­op­le are smart, but not the who­le ner­do kind of de­al that you think It’s just a ve­ry his­to­rical­ly in­tellec­tu­al pla­ce.

Mi­noo: Eve­rybo­dy is ve­ry com­pe­titi­ve with them­selves, stri­ving to do the­ir best. The pe­op­le re­al­ly aren’t that com­pe­titi­ve with each ot­her.

Pro­viden­ce is a we­ird pla­ce.

The co­loni­al ho­uses and cobb­les­to­ne stre­ets ins­pi­re you to want to do things li­ke ma­ke ice-cre­am by hand.

I wish I knew that Pro­viden­ce is not as big of a ci­ty as I tho­ught it was.

Ci­ty of Pro­viden­ce is fan­tastic. Ple­ase, we li­ke to call it a ci­ty.

The ot­her half of town is all abo­ut its Ita­li­an he­rita­ge.

Pro­viden­ce is well-known for ha­ving an Ita­li­an he­rita­ge.

It was ma­fia run for a long ti­me, I me­an eve­ryt­hing has to clo­se by 2 by ci­ty or­di­nan­ce, eve­ryt­hing el­se by 1 on the we­ek­da­ys.

Just a co­up­le blocks from cam­pus is a ma­in dri­ve, Tha­yer Stre­et.

Which li­kes to think of it­self as a mi­ni east vil­la­ge.

Tha­yer Stre­et is unof­fi­ci­al­ly stu­dents’ do­ma­in, and res­ta­urants and sto­res are all full of stu­dents.

The sce­ne of Col­le­ge Hill is a ma­in qu­ad at Brown with comp­le­te brick bu­il­dings and flo­wering tre­es, at le­ast in the spring ti­me.

Cam­pus is gor­ge­ous, ab­so­lute­ly gor­ge­ous es­pe­ci­al­ly in the spring. It gets a litt­le cold du­ring the win­ter, but on a who­le, you can walk from one end to anot­her wit­ho­ut get­ting frost du­ring the win­ter run. So, can’t comp­la­in.

You can find a lot of dif­fe­rent par­ty sce­nes at Brown, but don’t ex­pect anyt­hing too cra­zy.

Alt­ho­ugh, stu­dents he­re do smo­ke. And, we are not tal­king abo­ut ci­garet­tes.

It’s not hu­ge, we are de­fini­tely not a par­ty scho­ol, we are not a big ci­ty uni­ver­si­ty with tho­usands and tho­usands pe­op­le, but if you want to go out and ha­ve fun, it’s de­fini­tely aro­und you. And I me­an pe­op­le do drink, and pe­op­le do smo­ke pot on Brown’s cam­pus.

Ra­chel: The par­ty sce­ne he­re is exact­ly what eve­ry­one ne­eded it to be. I’ve ne­ver had a night when I can’t find any­one to go out with me.

And then the­re’s ath­le­tics. Alt­ho­ugh, Brown isn’t in Pac-10, they do rock the prep­py sports.

Crew, squ­ash, equ­est­ri­an, and wa­ter po­lo are all ran­ked tops in the co­unt­ry.

But most stu­dents don’t re­al­ly ca­re.

I don’t think the­re is an exor­bi­tant amo­unt of scho­ol spi­rit in Brown com­pa­red to ot­her scho­ols. The tur­no­uts of the ga­mes aren’t inc­re­dib­ly go­od.

And with the lack of scho­ol spi­rit co­mes a re­al­ly we­ak Gre­ek sce­ne.

Gre­ek li­fe is not do­minant he­re by any me­ans. It’s kind of a ni­ce al­terna­tive.

The­re are abo­ut ni­ne frats and on­ly two so­rori­ti­es. So I think the­re is a to­tal of a hund­red girls he­re in so­rori­ti­es.

Brown stu­dents are agg­res­si­vely li­beral and di­ver­si­ty is off the ho­ok.

Eve­ry ra­ce, re­ligi­on, class, and se­xu­ali­ty is rep­re­sen­ted he­re.

Dan: Brown dis­tingu­is­hes it­self by the ty­pes of pe­op­le it draws.Eve­rybo­dy has so­met­hing uni­que to of­fer.

Ra­chel: You ha­ve to un­ders­tand that you are not gon­na fit in right away and find your ni­che right away, be­ca­use eve­ry­one is so dif­fe­rent and it’s kind of overw­hel­ming.

Rob: A lot of pe­op­le he­re are ve­ry stub­born abo­ut the­ir po­liti­cal tho­ughts. And al­most get of­fended if you ha­ve a less li­beral app­ro­ach in po­litics than they do.

What ma­kes no mis­ta­ke – the­re are so­me hot ac­ti­vists.

The la­di­es are go­od, the la­di­es are smart, the la­di­es are be­auti­ful. The la­di­es are li­ke a la­dyli­ke.

Tess: I li­ke cam­pus. I wo­uld say that the­re’s de­fini­tely a big jock con­tingent, the­re is a lot of cu­te sort of In­di­an rock gu­ys, and a bunch of hip­pi­es, it de­pends on what exact­ly you are lo­oking for.

Lo­oking up is fun and is fa­ir­ly easy to do if you re­al­ly want to do it.

Com­pa­red to the ot­her Ivys, Brown’s en­dowment is re­al­ly we­ak. But so­mehow the ti­ny bud­get do­esn’t me­an Brown has bad fo­od.

So any­time you want anyt­hing the­re is piz­za, pas­ta, the­re is al­wa­ys a sa­lad bar, the­re’s al­wa­ys fresh fru­it.

My big­gest prob­lem was li­ke the fo­od he­re was al­most too go­od and that’s how I put on my we­ight from fo­od, not al­co­hol.

Ho­using at Brown is pret­ty de­cent with most fresh­men as­signed to eit­her Ke­eney or Pemb­ro­ke dorms.

Mark: The ho­using lot­te­ry sys­tem is pro­bab­ly one of the cra­zi­est things I had to do at Brown so far. You get a num­ber, you go to the lot­te­ry, they post eve­ryt­hing on a big bo­ard in the front with all the ro­oms that are ava­ilab­le, they start cal­ling your num­ber, you ha­ve abo­ut 30 se­conds to de­cide. It gets re­al­ly hec­tic, re­al­ly cra­zy, pe­op­le yel­ling, scre­aming.

My na­me is Da­ni­el and we are he­re in Ol­ney Ho­use, and this is my sing­le. So this is my clo­set. It’s ac­tu­al­ly a pret­ty big clo­set. The ro­om al­so co­mes with a cha­ir, un­fortu­nate­ly not this big com­fy one.

Af­ter the­ir first year on cam­pus so­me stu­dents find ho­using off-cam­pus in Pro­viden­ce.

They pro­bab­ly get ti­red of dorm­li­fe af­ter a whi­le no mat­ter whe­re you are, I think. Off-cam­pus for me has pro­vided re­siden­ce that’s mo­re af­fordab­le, so that works out for me par­ti­cular­ly, but it’s al­so mo­re li­ke of a ho­me fe­eling.

Hey, what’s up eve­rybo­dy? My na­me is Se­an, and I am a se­ni­or he­re at Brown, and this is my off-cam­pus apart­ment. He­re we are at the kitc­hen, pret­ty spa­ci­ous. We are in my ro­om he­re, it’s a bit big­ger than a dorm ro­om. Go­od thing abo­ut the­se ro­oms, that they are all dif­fe­rent, whe­re­as, dorm ro­oms are all the sa­me. Each ro­om in an off-cam­pus ho­use has its own cha­rac­ter, which is kin­da co­ol.

Brown is known as be­ing a ve­ry li­beral scho­ol that att­racts the open-min­ded, cre­ati­ve ty­pe. To get a deg­ree you just ha­ve to pass a mi­nimum of 30 co­ur­ses and de­mons­tra­te an abi­lity to wri­te co­herent­ly.

Ben: They can ta­ke he­re haj-paj clas­ses and gi­ve them so­mekind of a form that’s di­rec­ted at wha­tever per­so­nal in­te­rest you ha­ve, that’s kept off in so­me form of the­sis wri­ting and that exp­la­ins your new phi­losop­hy of the world that eve­ry­one sho­uld be le­ar­ning abo­ut.

Brown has a ton of gre­at de­part­ments: Bi­olo­gy, His­to­ry, Econ, Com­pu­ter Sci­en­se and En­gi­ne­ering – all get high marks. In­terna­ti­onal Re­lati­ons is al­so tops. And spe­aking of In­terna­ti­onal Re­lati­ons, ma­ny of the stu­dents he­re al­so ta­ke a se­mes­ter ab­ro­ad.

Se­an: It was an inc­re­dib­le ex­pe­ri­en­ce. I went to Da­kar, Se­negal in West Af­ri­ca.

I went to Aust­ra­lia, I went to Syd­ney, and had the best ti­me in my li­fe.

And if you can’t find what you are lo­oking for on cam­pus or over­se­as, you can app­ly to cons­truct your own gro­up in­de­pen­dent stu­dy pro­ject.

Ca­ra: It’s de­fini­tely co­ol to ha­ve, be­ca­use if the class do­esn’t exist, you can ma­ke your own with your fri­ends.

They are for­med by stu­dents who ha­ve par­ti­cular in­te­rest, and they don’t find a co­ur­se in the ca­talog that in­te­rests them, and so they wri­te a co­ur­se syl­la­bus and pass it by com­mittee.

The pro­fes­sors he­re are known to be re­al­ly fri­end­ly and ac­cessib­le. But li­ke in all top scho­ols you ha­ve to ask for the help you want.

Ro­op­hy: The pro­fes­sors he­re are to te­ach, but at the sa­me ti­me the pro­fes­sor is out to re­se­arch and all ot­her stuff. So­meti­mes he has a lot on his mind. Whi­le he is gon­na ma­ke ef­fort in class to re­ach out to you, you want him to get that sa­me ef­fort back.

It’s re­al­ly not in com­mon in Brown..to know pro­fes­sor’s cell­pho­ne num­ber, and ho­me num­ber, and call them, and go out to lunch with them and dis­cuss your pro­ject.

So if you got it down to Earth, li­beral at­ti­tude, you can hand­le de­sig­ning your own edu­cati­on, and you just as uni­que as the scho­ol it­self — you to­tal­ly sho­uld be thin­king Brown.

But can you get in?
