Why did you choose this business school? Size was the deciding factor. I wanted access to professors and staff, a tightly knit class, experiential learning options, and opportunities for leadership. These are the learning avenues that I value and found at Simon. In a class of just over one hundred students, everyone knows everyone. Together, we built a vital, dynamic, talented business school network with worldwide representation. I have received a distinctive education at Simon where all of my needs and graduate school goals have been met ten-fold.

What is your best advice to an applicant hoping to get into your school’s MBA program? Be three dimensional in your application. Let your personality shine through in your essays. The Simon admissions team has mastered the craft of assembling a dynamic class. We are not defined by GMAT scores alone. Simon students have a remarkable breadth and depth of personal and professional experiences, backgrounds, and interests. Convey who you are and how you will leave this school stronger than you found it. We are Simon strong!

Why did you choose this business school? Simon has a phenomenal student culture and community. Daily life at the school is an integrative experience where students are intimately involved in the program and activities. Throughout my journey prior to joining Simon, I experienced the admissions staff, current students, and alumni to be warm and welcoming. This made me feel confident throughout the process and gave me the platform to be myself and bring my strengths and experiences to the table.

What is your best advice to an applicant hoping to get into your school’s MBA program? Know that you bring value to the program through your experiences. There will be plenty of students who come along with you who have such amazing stories and résumés. It can be easy to fall into the trap of not feeling good enough or, on the other hand, an overwhelming competitive urge. I advise students to be their genuine selves and reveal their strengths while being honest about their dreams and goals in life. Ultimately, when choosing a business school, there should be a mutual fit that will create an environment for you to thrive.
