“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."

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!"
