What Recent Grads Say See All 10 Comments >

The best thing about my MBA program is the tight-knit community among the student body that is enabled by the small class size. The close coordination of the class instruction among faculty in the core classes was also important, as instructors in different areas knew where we were in the curriculum in other core classes and were able to make timely and relevant connections across disciplines.
