Why This Program?
“In addition to being impressed by the passion of the faculty and staff for this program, I liked the professional diversity of the students. At this point in our careers, we can learn a lot from each other that can be helpful in our own businesses. The Action Learning aspect was also very attractive because I learn better by doing than just reading theory. Finally, the mission of the school to develop principled, innovative leaders who improve the world resonated. I am in a business that engages with people at the lower end of the socio-economic level and take heavy stock in our mission of changing lives by helping people find gainful employment. For me, an MBA isn’t just about the content, but also learning how to make a bigger impact in the lives of the people we employ.”
