Experience during the program

Mason School of Business is a part of the Colllege of William and Mary. William and Mary is a very prestigious college being a public ivy and has a history of educating leaders here in the US . Established in the late 17th century the college represents culture and a strong history of education. This was my motivation to join Mason School of Business.
I would rate my entire MBA experience as Very Good. The Mason School has great professors that come from a variety of fields and nationalities that brings a lot of diversity to the education style. My cohort had around 35% population of international students which was a great experience for me.
The MBA program the way it's designed gives students the opportunity to collaborate among each other , with the professors and also with the business world outside while solving real life business problems.
The Executive Partner (Coaching & Mentoring) program is one of the most innovative and positive aspect of the program . It gives students the opportunity to learn hands on from the people who have had decades of experience of handling businesses , leading corporations and even more.
Mason School of Business has certainly met all my expectations. Being an international I had a full time job offer before I graduated and I love each day at the office now.Although, I still feel that the Career Management Center at the Mason School of Business has room for improvement but there's certainly no shortage for commitment
To future applicants my suggestion would be to definitely research the curriculum of the MBA program they are considering as it plays a very important role. Speak at length with your admission representatives and feel free to connect with Professors as well. This will help you get the most out of your application and ultimately your MBA

About professors, classes and curriculum

It is a very well designed curriculum and the quality of professors is out standing . I would rate them 5/5 for that.

About job placement process

The schools needs to improve the career management center, more so for international students those require sponsorship to work. The career center is a team of very enthusiastic members who are always ready to help students but it still needs more exposure to corporates . But I would say hitting a job is not easy anywhere, you need to put to efforts to the right direction and results will be positive
