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

it was one of two programs that I was considering as an applicant. My decision was made the day I came to Kingston for my program experience tour and admissions interview. From the interactions with my Application Advisor, MBA program administration staff and faculty and current students - the culture was clear. The Smith MBA’s team-based learning approach and student spirit made it a genuine experience – and one that I was seeking.

The best advice I can give to an applicant would be to be true to yourself and listen to your heart. Do your research; however, make the selection that you think would be best for you. I want to work in a fast-paced, challenging industry with interesting work - consulting. I would love to be a well-known alumnus who gives back to Smith students in a meaningful way, as I can already tell I will get help from others and paying it forward is part of who I am. I hope I can work on my personal and professional development and becoming the best version of myself – I genuinely believe the Smith MBA can help me get there.
