Class of 2018 Profile

MBA students have an enviable work ethic, a strong commitment to community, and an approachability that gets the attention of recruiters. The diversity of our student population—in terms of ethnicity, gender, national origin, and professional experience—extends learning beyond classroom opportunities, with each student’s unique background considered an asset to be shared. With just around 100 students entering the Full-Time MBA degree program each fall, bringing a kaleidoscope of different cultural insights and work experiences to the program, our students often learn just as much from fellow classmates as from instructors about the global business environment or latest developments in various industrial sectors.
