Smith Fellows Programs
You can control your individual learning experience by becoming a Smith fellow. Each one-year program is unique and will allow the intense study of a specific area of business, ranging from finance and supply chain to strategic design and global consulting. Most programs require one course in the fall semester and one in the spring semester.
At Smith, I was a Venture Capital and Private Equity fellow, a program that introduced me to a career I'm passionate about and taught me the basics of being a good investor, lessons I still rely on today. I also connected with smart and talented classmates, professors, and mentors who have remained wonderful friends and colleagues post-graduation. I would not be where I am today without the support I received from Smith!
