The full package that I am receiving from the MSU MBA program is not only academic achievements, but rather a combination of career management opportunities, personal and team developments, professional advancements and alumni network. The classes are based on both conceptual learning and case simulations that stimulate to apply what you have learned from lectures and textbooks into a practical environment.
I really enjoy the connectivity this program offers: whether it is a classmate I see every day of the week or my ability to walk up to a second-year student and engage in a meaningful conversation without feeling like I’m bothering someone, to the open access to faculty, staff and even the dean of the school.
I decided to get my MBA so that I could change careers, develop as a leader, and improve my quality of life. Broad has proven to be the best opportunity for me to accomplish all of my goals. The curriculum has provided me with the skills to excel in any industry. Additionally, I have had the opportunity to improve my leadership skills, thanks to the many organizations. I credit my classmates and our faculty for helping me grow both personally and professionally.
I really enjoy the ample development opportunities, both personal and professional, that Broad offers in a state-of-the-art facility. Apart from getting an excellent education, I admire the emphasis on teamwork at Broad. Small class size allows one to know every classmate well, developing a close-knit community and intense learning experience. The openness and collaborative nature of my classmates, faculty, staff, and alumni truly distinguish Broad.
The Broad MBA program has been the perfect combination of practicality and agility. I’m grateful for having the opportunity to work alongside passionate and driven classmates that are willing to collaborate on constantly improving the program for future generations of Spartan MBAs. Professionally, I’ve been able to leverage the vast Michigan State network and apply my experiences and education towards an internship and full-time role that fulfill my passion and career goals.
Aside from the exceptional education offered, I value the openly collaborative atmosphere that gives the program a fantastic sense of community among students and professors.
Broad is a highly ranked MBA program that manages to maintain an environment that is both collaborative and supportive. Everyone involved with the program is more than willing to help, whether it be with academics or career advice. This goes for my classmates, the faculty and staff, and the alums.
In my current role I felt ready to add a greater level of value and I craved opportunity to have access to create change on a larger more impactful scale. During my business school search, I attended two events before committing and MSU sold itself. The connectedness I felt from 2nd year MBAs and even the admissions staff was genuine. I’d found something rare. The Broad MBA has been instrumental in amplifying my talents and experiences so that I am an extremely marketable and valuable candidate.
When I decided to pursue my MBA I knew that not only did I want a top-tier education program, but I also wanted to expand my network. After visiting Broad and witnessing the small class sizes, interactions with faculty members and bond between students I knew this program would fulfill my needs.
My favorite aspect of the Broad MBA by far has been the intense level of collaboration expected in the program. Working on cases, assignments, events, and competitions together from day one helps you learn to deal with the ups and downs that come with working in a team. It helps develop a skillset critical to survival in today’s dynamic business world.
I chose the Broad MBA as I felt small class size would lend itself to a collaborative and tight-knit educational and social community. That has certainly been true as I knew every one of my classmates by name within the first few weeks of arriving on campus. I also felt that the family environment often espoused as a core value by the Broad College was genuine based on the many interactions I had with staff and faculty throughout the application process. Our Broad full time MBA community has proven to thrive on people caring for and helping out fellow Spartans during and after their time in the program, and I couldn’t be more satisfied with my decision!
After attending Michigan State College of Law, I had learned to love and appreciate Michigan State’s dedication to its students. I knew that Broad would be no exception. After attending a potential student day, I witnessed the care that Broad faculty and staff give each and every student (whether potential, admitted, current, or previous student). It is this type of diligence and care that helped me choose to obtain my MBA from Broad.
Before leaving the Air Force, I started looking for a program that would leverage my professional experience and provide me with the tools to succeed in the private sector. Broad’s MBA checked all the boxes—recognized SCM program, culture, class size, curriculum structure, and target industry representation. However, the final deciding factor was the depth of individualized attention I received before coming into the program, and it’s no different today. At Broad, I didn’t feel like just an applicant. They understood well who I was and why they wanted me in the program.
My favorite aspect of Broad has been the people. Having the privilege to attend Michigan State for my undergrad, I was already familiar with how welcoming the Spartan community is and I wanted that experience again for business school.
Known as a world leader in its supply chain education, Broad was a no-brainer when I decided to pursue my MBA in Supply Chain and Finance. Well-crafted curriculum and an environment that fosters teamwork, entrepreneurship and leadership were the highlights of the program for me. With such a close-knit alumni network, exceptional faculty and transformational team experiences, I feel empowered to navigate through any business challenge and drive change.
