This review is for Duke Fuqua
Program Full Time MBA
Class of 2018
At this juncture in my MBA journey, I think I can accurately reflect on my Fuqua experiences over the past year.
In terms of achieving my objective of transitioning from a non-profit, Fuqua provided a great opportunity for career switching and advancement. I would expand this perception to other traditional post-MBA career routes available to Fuqua students, as the trail has been well worn by the feet of Fuqua students prior. I would should say, however, that the start-up scene (while big in the Triangle area) requires students to exert a bit more effort and network with companies in either New York or San Francisco.
What I would suggest to future applicants is to think carefully about the qualities you prefer in the MBA programs you're to. For some, pursuing an MBA in a big city might be the right option. For others, attending an MBA program known for its tight-knight student body and finely tuned core curriculum might outweigh the benefits of studying in a cultural hub of the world. I couldn't be happier with my decision to attend Fuqua and I appreciate the academic, social, and career benefits it has provided me.
