Simon Story: From #SimonStrong to Starbucks

“One thing that really stood out to me was just how warm everybody was.”

That was something that drew Jasmine Mitchell ’19 (MBA) to Simon as she was looking at MBA programs. That feeling is captured by a student-driven, grassroots phrase: #SimonStrong. In her words, “it’s who we are” and it represents how the students feel about one another and the commitment they share—something she sees as very unique to Simon’s program.

#SimonStrong is more than just a phrase, it’s a philosophy. Having benefited from mentoring by current students as she was embarking on her MBA journey, Jazz is returning the favor by reaching out to incoming MBA students. After her internship with Starbucks’ Global Marketing Strategy Division, she undoubtedly has valuable advice to share.


We respect one another. We show humility. We support each other. We act with integrity. We are professional. We are #SimonStrong. Are you?
