Why Booth?

I think the Booth education and the way in which the teaching occurs at Booth is timeless. I found professors take blocks—they'll take the finance block, the econ block, the marketing block, the human element, all these blocks—and they'll put them together and say this is a potential path forward. I anticipate leveraging my Booth education for the rest of my career. 

My advice to anyone considering business school

I think one of the most important things you can get out of an MBA is your network. I knew a big part of the MBA was a network, and here in Chicago there's really no better choice than Booth.

Favorite Professor

I took a class called Managing the Workplace with Canice Prendergast, W. Allen Wallis Professor of Economics. The information I learned in that class and my ability to apply that to my workplace was unbelievable.
