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

the dynamic team-based approach to learning is the closest resemblance to the modern corporate culture. Being able to effectively work in a team with global representation across various economic, cultural, and business perspectives was an experience I was not going to pass up. I made the decision to choose Smith right from the get-go as I was blown away by the application experience. The staff at Smith were professional, timely, and showed they truly cared about the student experience to make Smith one of the premier MBA programs in Canada let alone globally. Looking back at the application process, I wish I took the opportunity to visit the Smith school in order to get a feel of the learning culture. I think this would have made my decision to come to Smith even more concrete. The Kingston campus is breathtaking, the staff are amazing, and the variety of student backgrounds are even better! Post MBA, I would like to pursue a career in finance to leverage the project management skills, team-based leadership, and business acumen I am having the opportunity to learn at Smith. As a tip to incoming applicants, ask as many questions as you would like. Whether you are asking a current student or a staff member, you want to build as much information as you can to make an informed decision. An MBA is a big life investment and you want to make sure you are making the right choices for you.
