From the moment I read about Chicago Booth and their approach to business learning, I was hooked. In the summer of 2015, I was lucky enough to be a part of an incredible program. Living in downtown Chicago, visiting Fortune 500 companies, learning from world-renowned professors and excelling in typical and not-so-typical classroom activities, I was able to grow personally and professionally in an immersive and educational environment with a rigorous entrepreneurial spirit.
Along with my cohort of 64 students from 21 different countries, we studied in graduate-level courses in accounting, finance, marketing, negotiation, leadership and even business etiquette. Selected from a group of very competitive peers, I was honored to be a part of this globally-minded and incredibly close group of students. We pushed each other, grew as students and people, and learned about how to apply business school concepts into the real world.
