Why This Program?

“I wanted an MBA to help me get to the next step in my career and to provide greater value to my firm. I came to this program because of the curriculum, the diverse cohort, and the focus on action learning. As an engineer, I was attracted to the curricular focus on system dynamics, data, and analytic tools. I also saw great value in taking classes with executives from a diversity of industries and geographies. I looked forward to learning from my classmates and broadening my perspectives. As for action learning, I learn best by doing and this program emphasizes getting your hands dirty and making mistakes as part of the learning process. I only applied to this program.”
