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

Small class size, team-based learning approach and the initiatives undertaken to promote women's leadership. These factors stood out and became key differentiators amongst the other one-year programs. The Smith MBA experience had been engaging and no where in the process were my questions left unanswered. I always received an update on the next steps which made my decision to choose the Smith MBA easier and supportive.

If I could go back and give myself advice one year ago, it would have been not to stress out as much and continue to have faith in yourself and your abilities. Getting ready for an MBA program is a long process, so in the meantime, pick up an activity or a skill and work on it rather than stressing yourself unnecessarily. That was the best advice given to me, and I would like to pass it forward as it allows you to live in the moment.

I am looking forward to enhancing my leadership abilities during the MBA experience so that when I go back into corporate life, I can take away the knowledge and other skills imperative for an executive role within an organization.
