Conor Byrnes

Why SBSP?
It is a great chance to learn at a university with a great reputation, gain some insight into what studying an MBA would be like, and work with a group of motivated young people from all over the world in a challenging environment. The program also helped me develop connections and skills I can use in my present studies and in my future career.
Study at Booth
My favorite course was finance. I had studied finance before, but this course helped me link different aspects of my studies together, as well as gain a better perspective on some of the concepts studied.
Your Network
The best thing about the SBSP experience is the people you meet and the friends you make during the program. There is such a diverse range of people, and it’s great to work with a group of similarly motivated individuals from all over the world. It helped me to really see just how many opportunities there are out there, as well as to meet like-minded people from totally different cultures.
