The best thing about my MBA program was the diverse curriculum that I had access to. I had lots of opportunity to customize my classes and take those that are critical to my professional success. This was not only available to me because I was a joint degree student. My MBA classmates had the opportunity to take classes throughout the university from any department. If there is something interesting happening in the world someone is working on it at Illinois. This provides students with a lot of great opportunities. I also had a lot of support from the career services department in my career search and was impressed by the quality and international diversity of my classmates.
