Why SBSP?

It was a way for me to complement my liberal arts-focused undergraduate studies with a business knowledge base, while also getting exposed to the type of coursework and education that comes with the Chicago Booth MBA Program.

Study at Booth

After completing the program I better understand not only how basic accounting, finance, and marketing go into an MBA, but also how much more expansive an MBA program can be. By incorporating leadership, negotiating, and other practical business skills into our study, I see how those also play a role in success outside and after the classroom.

Exploring Chicago

Living in the center of downtown was one of the highlights of the program. Chicago is a beautiful place in the summer. From the apartments, I was in walking distance of Lake Michigan, Navy Pier, large production plays, and some of the best architecture and food in the US.
