Visitors Program

On-Campus Visits with Smith Ambassadors

Prospective students are invited to come and visit Smith! During one of our Visitors Program events, attendees will: visit a class, have lunch with current students, and attend presentations from our admissions team, a current student, and our Office of Career Services. Those in attendance will also receive an application fee waiver. One admitted student that attends a Visitors Program will receive a $20,000 scholarship!

These visits are a great opportunity to experience our diverse learning environment and to witness the top-notch instruction by our faculty. The opportunity to meet with current Smith MBA's is an invaluable chance for candidates to view the program from the perspective of a current student. We believe that the best way for candidates to learn about our program here at Smith is to experience it first hand!
