Looking back on your experience, what advice would you give to future business school applicants? Be sure to set aside plenty of time to study for the GMAT. The more practice you get, the better. Besides the GMAT, just be sure to go into every interview relaxed and tell yourself that you are more so looking to see if the school is a good fit for you, not vice versa. I found that my top school had a culture that I did not want to be a part of and decided to go to Broad because of the culture.
What led you to choose this program for your full-time MBA? The Broad MBA program was the only program to make me feel welcomed from the moment I sent my application. The administration was extremely helpful and easily accessible. Once I made it to campus, I found that the second year students were all eager to share their experiences and help me out however they could. Outside of culture, I felt that The Broad MBA gave me the most return on my investment given the job placement rate and the job satisfaction rate.
Tell us about your dream job or dream employer at this point in your life? My dream job would be a brand manager for a multi-national CPG firm. With my love for travel, I’d like to work for a firm that has an international footprint to give me the opportunity to move around and experience different cultures while doing what I love and progressing in my career.
What would you like your business school peers to say about you after you graduate from this program? I’d like my peers to remember me as being helpful, hard-working, and a pleasure to work with. I’d like them to look back and enjoy the time they spent with me and want to continue to work with me in the future. One of the greatest assets to have is a strong network, and that begins with my business school peers.
