I came to the Smith MBA program to achieve my personal and professional growth goals. I was determined to complete a one-year MBA program from one of the top 100 MBA programs in the world, and Smith was the perfect fit. Smith's personalized approach from the beginning of the application process until now has been exceptional. The diversity of the cohort, not only in terms of demographics but also professional experience, is something I was looking forward to.

Initially, I had some doubts about team-based learning, but after experiencing it, I am convinced it is the most effective approach. I have had numerous opportunities to learn and grow alongside my team members, and I am confident that this experience will help me achieve my goals.

My ultimate goal is to transition my career to strategy consulting. Therefore, my MBA learning goals are to enhance my leadership skills, acquire new skills, and excel academically while enjoying the experience.

As an applicant, it is imperative to be mindful of the deadlines and apply early to allow sufficient time for visa applications for international students. Smith will provide you with all the opportunities and a great learning environment, but in the end, it is up to you to make the most of it and 'Squeeze the Orange.'
