This review is for Marshall
Class of 2018
Progressing through the program has been a life changing experience. My goal when I entered the program was to switch careers into a highly technical and competitive industry that I had no experience in. I had plenty of opportunities through the alumni network and landed a job that met my goal. Friendships and collaboration with classmates has been the best part of the program and it far exceeded my expectations. For a future applicant I would suggest really thinking about what you want to get out of an MBA before you apply and use your first couple months focusing on how you can use resources to achieve that. An MBA is great for a number of reasons, but I think the most beneficial is boosting or switching your career. Figure out which one you want to do and focus on how you specifically want to do that with an MBA.
Core year is all your mandatory classes and some of them are less than enjoyable. The real fun starts when you get to electives.
Figure out what you want to do with your MBA before you start and prepare for recruiting as early as possible. The better idea you have about what you want to do with your MBA, the more successful you will be with job placement and recruiting.
