Favorite thing about Smith or MBA program so far: I came to
Smith primarily because of the emerging focus on social value creation in the
curriculum and special programs, and it’s now becoming a much more visible
element of our school’s profile. It’s been challenging and exciting to be a part
of that growth, and I’m excited to see how the Smith community cultivates this
focus in the future.
