Location was important. I wanted to have a college town experience during my MBA, and New Haven has met my expectations. It’s small enough to feel connected and big enough to offer diverse opportunities. It’s also conveniently located between New York City and Boston—both major finance hubs, which made recruiting a lot easier.
