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

I was looking for a program that offered an immersive, challenging experience that would push me outside of my comfort zone. When I was researching my options, it did not take long for me to see that Smith was my school of choice. The team-based learning, coaching framework, and learning style all fit with what I was looking for from a personal development standpoint. I am humbled and thankful to be in the program working alongside such a diverse and talented group of people.

My background is in banking and wealth management, but I am looking to narrow my focus within the finance industry while exploring whether consulting would be a good fit with my skill set and career aspirations. Thankfully, there are many resources available that will help with that, and there are ample networking opportunities to speak with alumni and industry contacts to build your network and gauge your interest.

The top pieces of advice I would give to myself a year ago and to new applicants: come into the program with a growth mindset, believe in yourself and relax! You will be working with other students and supportive faculty who are all here to help you learn and develop. Spend the time to work on yourself and leverage your resources to make the most of the opportunity.
