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

I came to the Smith MBA because of three main reasons:

  1. The program’s strength in training for a career consulting as evidenced by the most recent employment outcomes
  2. The extensive coaching programs – you have access to a career coach, a team coach, an executive coach, and a health and wellness instructor
  3. The team-based learning offering. As a matter of fact, the Smith MBA is the only team-based MBA program in Canada, thereby adding to its uniqueness among others.

I started the application process in mid-2023. The process was seamless, with an initial review by the application advisor. You’re informed of the following steps to proceed in the review itself. I suggest applying as soon as possible because that gives you ample time to reschedule any tests or prepare for educational credential assessments. Hello WES! If you’re an international student, applying early becomes even more imperative to avoid visa delays.

Regarding the application itself, I would advise you to be yourself. Smith MBA focuses on authenticity, and they genuinely want to get to know you. They’ll want to know your ambitions and motivations behind applying to an MBA program and why Smith specifically.

The Smith MBA is a steep learning experience guaranteed to change you for the better. Along the way, you’ll meet some amazing and intelligent members of your cohort who’ll enrich your experience during the program. As for my career goal/s, I’ll be looking to forge a career in management consulting and stay consistent with the Smith brand!
