Smurfit - A Good Hidden School

REVIEWER IDENTITY VERIFIED by score report [?]

This review is for Smurfit

Program Full Time One Year MBA

Class of 2018

Experience during the program

Smurfit is a good business school than most of the second tier business schools in US. Importantly, there is a 1 year stay back option( which can be extended to 1+1 = 2 years).

It is a part of the Global Network of Advanced Management Group and this provides the students with the opportunity to leverage the skills from other top ranking schools and knowledge from one of the top faculties in the world.

PS : GNAM is a group of which top B schools (Yale, IE, HKUST, ESMT, NUS, IIMB etc ) are a part of.

The GNIW (Immersion week) provides with an option to the students to take up an credit course at one of the GNAM schools across the globe.

An internation study trip bolsters the understanding of a foreign country market and how to assess the demand for a particular product.

An international capstone project is an icing on the cake giving the students a golden opportunity to execute the skills by consulting a company and providing solutions.

Overall, i would be more than happy to recommend any future MBA candidates to go for this school.

PS : Smurfit is a one year intensive course.
