I came to the Smith MBA because of the team-based structure, the customizable curriculum, and the program’s outstanding reputation. Having been part of a hockey team for most of my life, I was excited to get back to a team-based environment. Additionally, the flexible curriculum allows for the opportunity to explore a variety of topics. As someone who wants to explore multiple business disciplines, I am grateful for the ability to do so. Lastly, the reputation of Smith speaks for itself, and the opportunity to learn from world-class professors and from classmates, who each bring their own experience and perspective to the classroom, is something that I do not take for granted.

At Smith, I know that I am surrounded by professors, classmates and administrators who genuinely care about my personal development. Throughout my MBA experience, I hope to build strong connections with my classmates and develop the skills needed to be an impactful leader in the business world. I am currently undecided on what career path to follow post-MBA. In the meantime, I’ll be exploring career options in consulting, marketing, and brand management until I find something that is the right fit for me. If I could give prospective students any advice, it would be not to be afraid to highlight what makes you unique and authentic!
