Why was an MBA an important step in your career? Why did you choose Booth?

I knew early on in college that I was interested in getting my MBA, but I wanted to have more work experience and create some purposeful goals. When the time came, I didn’t want to have to leave my career where I was still making progress. That’s when I realized Booth’s Part-Time program would be a great fit because it has the same classes and outstanding academic experiences as the Full-Time program but allowed me to continue my current progression at work I was interested in learning with Booth’s distinguished professors and accessing knowledge from people at the forefront of their fields. The collective group of people Booth attracts was very attractive to me and I wanted to be part of that community.

What impact did Booth have on your career?

It’s not so much specific examples of classes for me, but rather I’ve gained an ability to think about the big picture that helps me stand out and allows others to appreciate that I’m thinking through their perspective as well.

What was your favorite class?

Entrepreneurial Selling with Michael Alter. The class pushed me out of my comfort zone. I have no selling experience but the class forced me to talk to people I didn’t know, to try to build relationships with them.

"The greatest thing I benefited from was the general Booth community. I made friends in both the Part-Time and Full-Time programs. The community is big and you will find classmates who inspire you, so don’t forget to continue connecting with others."

— Yingting Wang, '20

What is your favorite memory at Booth?

LAUNCH was definitely a highlight of my Booth experience. The three days of building relationships with classmates and participating in the LAUNCH activities got me really excited about going back to school. I remember an activity where a group of us were in ‘headquarters’ in one room and another group was in a separate room as field managers. We saw how quickly communication could break down and what we could do to improve things.

What advice would you offer to incoming Part-Time students?

Prioritization at different points. Think through your schedule for the week and find those small chunks of times you can utilize smartly. Also, the greatest thing I benefited from was the general Booth community. I made friends in both the Part-Time and Full-Time programs. The community is big and you will find classmates who inspire you, so don’t forget to continue connecting with others.
