I came to the Full-time MBA at Smith School of Business because ...

I always knew that I wanted to do an MBA, and I am thankful that I have been able to have this opportunity so early on in my career at the best business school in Canada. From the time I finished writing the GMAT to my arrival in Kingston, my experience has been amazing. Throughout the entire application process, the program administration has gone above and beyond to welcome me to the Smith family. It won’t take long for you to know that Smith will be the perfect fit.

A big factor that played into my decision to choose Smith was the team-based learning environment. Simulating an atmosphere that is similar to a professional work setting is crucial in so many ways. Being able to implement everything we learn in class on our teams allows the learning to be more than just concepts and cases.

My tip for applicants would be to focus on the things that you can control and let everything else fall into place. Spend your time putting your best foot forward in everything you do – whether that be your MBA application or your everyday life – as this effort is something that you can control.

I could not be more excited about the journey ahead and I am always happy to chat about my accumulated experiences in the Smith MBA!
