What surprised you most about Booth?

Booth has a stronger community than I could have ever imagined. I never thought that I would meet such an amazing group of friends and colleagues who would challenge me, support me, and help me grow.

Advice to anyone considering business school

Business school was so much more than I expected. It took me a few years before I felt I was ready to go back. Be open to change—it isn’t just about career change. Booth has changed how I think, changed me as a leader, and has brought out skills I didn’t know I had.
