The University of Minnesota is highly regarded for its research-based learning approach and faculty that are fully engaged in their fields. I believe this was a point of differentiation for this program and a benefit to me. The international residency was also a positive. I know other schools offer these as well, but our trip felt very privileged--we met some top business professionals that were very inspiring.
