I chose the Smith MBA program because of its small class size, top-tier instructors, and its emphasis on high-performance teamwork. I have strong analytical skills from my engineering background, so I came to Smith for a formal business education that will bridge the gap between the technical roles I have done and the strategic leadership roles I strive to obtain. I am looking forward to building my finance and business management knowledge through coursework and volunteering as the Director of Sales & Trading for the Smith MBA Finance Club. I am confident that the reputable, team-based curriculum at Smith will set me up for success as a high-potential leader in the energy industry.

I advise any prospective applicant to reach out to an application advisor. The staff are wonderful and can guide you through the application process. I also recommend applying early in the recruitment and admissions cycle as spots in the cohort are filled on a rolling basis. The full-time MBA admission rate was less than 4% this year, so be sure to put your best effort into your application files and GMAT. There are plenty of free GMAT study videos and practice questions online. Finally, be sure to reflect on your career interests and goals when determining if an MBA is right for you.
