The best thing about my MBA program was the small size and individualized care we all received from the faculty and staff. With such a small class, everyone was always well aware of what was going on in our lives and with our internship/job searches. The faculty and staff are always available for students, and are always more than willing to help out. This creates a close-knit family atmosphere at the school that I have not seen or heard of in any other programs.
