Making the decision to pursue an MBA may appear to be the most challenging hurdle to pursuing the next stage of your professional development. Do you leave your job (even if you hate it), or try push yourself through scheduling hell by working and studying? How do weddings or babies factor in to the picture?
"Being around motivated people all learning about something new and trying to improve themselves is highly stimulating. That’s what you’re super-motivated to do in attempting to get into business school. Well, that environment is exactly what MBALaunch offers."
“Does a traditional background for business school really exist? I’m challenged everyday by individuals from diverse backgrounds who have taught me more about business than I’ve ever before known. I truly think this is a once in a lifetime experience and I’m forever grateful for the opportunity.”
"Perspectives from other professionals and expert knowledge shared by world-renowned professors provide the backdrop for rich discussions from which I daily apply ‘a-ha moments’ in my career. "
"Business school will be the most inspiring, challenging and brutal two years of your life. There is nothing that can prepare you for it, there is no way to explain it and there is no investment more valuable for your future."
"One of the most impactful pieces of advice I’ve received so far in business school is that the MBA should be a transformational experience, not a transactional experience. What does that mean? I think it means taking risks and challenging myself to “say yes” to classes or experiences that I would typically shy away from. It means being open-minded and present within and outside the MBA community. These two years in school are meant to grant me a safe space to grow as a leader so that I can make a bigger impact!"
