Greetings from snowy Rochester!

As long as you submit a completed application by March 19th, it will be considered for the Round 4 application deadline for admission and scholarship consideration, with a final decision issued on or before April 30th.

Hopefully the extra time will allow you to manage the unexpected challenges that you may be facing due to the weather, and also give full effort into submitting a great application to Simon for MBA or MS study. If you have any questions related to Simon, our programs, or the application deadline, please reach out to us via email for assistance – our team is available and ready to help. We look forward to receiving and reviewing your application.

In the meantime, please stay safe and warm!

From Nonprofit to the NBA: Katie Freiert, MBA Class of 2017

What did Katie Freiert, MBA Class of 2017, do when she learned she had been accepted to the NBA Internship Program?

“My first call was my dad, and he cried on the phone.”

Basketball had always been an important part of Katie’s life, and after spending five years in the nonprofit sector, she hoped that pursuing her MBA would help her realize her dream of working in professional sports. As athletes do, Katie set a goal and then worked to achieve it. She prepared for business school long before she submitted her application by taking a few classes to bolster her résumé and studying for the GRE. Her hard work—both before and during her MBA program—paid off when she received that call from the NBA.

Perhaps Katie’s dad summed it up best: “He just couldn’t believe this [program] had gotten me to where I really wanted to be, and that I was going to really live my dream.”
