Meet Simon’s MBA Class of 2019!

August is a very exciting time for the Simon community, because it’s when we get to welcome our new students to campus! Classes officially began for our first-year MBA students on Aug. 4, but before that, the Class of 2019 got acquainted with one another at orientation. The students conquered a ropes course at Bristol Mountain Aerial Adventures, visited the Strong National Museum of Play, and had the opportunity to build camaraderie during a Niagara Trek, where they rode Maid of the Mist in Niagara Falls and went to the Buffalo Zoo.
