“Students not only want to succeed in their respective careers, but would like everyone else to have the same level of success.” 

Why did you choose to attend the Smith School of Business?

I chose to attend Smith because I enjoyed every single interaction that I had with students, faculty, and staff during the application process. I felt like a part of the community before I was officially accepted to the school. Students are encouraging and supportive of each other. 

In your opinion, what makes the Smith MBA program unique?

Smith is unique because it is a small program where all students not only want to succeed in their respective careers, but would like everyone else to have the same level of success.  We study together, prepare for interviews with each other, and spend time every Thursday evening catching up on what is going on with each other at the weekly social. It is a fantastic group of people! 

What advice would you give to future Smith MBA candidates?

Apply to this program and attend as many admissions events as you can! You will be able to really feel the community vibe and you will love it!
