How does a Booth MBA prepare you for success?

It allows you to master various topics, ask good questions, and make business decisions using the perspectives around you.

How has Booth Scholars shaped your early career decisions?

I was willing to take a leap. It allowed me to take a risk, which led me to my passion. I was able to focus on where I wanted my career to go between college and Booth. So by the time I got here, I was comfortable and I knew what I wanted to do.

What’s your advice for Booth Scholars applicants?

Try to look ahead and tell a story. It will change as you are exposed to careers, but that's OK! Having a story creates a strong application and lends itself to shaping a long-term goal.
