Talk to me about...

What surprised me the most was the amount of opportunity and exposure I got after becoming an MBA student. In addition to the schoolwork, I have chances to hear from and ask questions to CEOs from the top companies in the world, and I also have access to the large alumni network at Yale. I could also take classes from different schools at Yale, including Yale College, providing me with various perspectives outside SOM. Moreover, I learned a lot from talking to my peers from different professional backgrounds across all industries, which helped me understand life outside of finance. Overall, being an MBA student is the best decision I have made, and it definitely made my life more fruitful and exciting!
