All round experience at Katz

REVIEWER IDENTITY VERIFIED [?]

This review is for Katz

Program Full Time MBA

Class of 2018

Experience during the program

Katz has a great focus on diversity, because the things that you could learn from real experience with your peers cannot be taught in the classroom. With students ranging from Sports personnel to Chartered Accountant, the experience and amount of learning at the school is incredible.
At Katz, Experienced Based Learning is more important than even the core courses, because it helps you find your strengths, work on those strengths, and gives an opportunity to learn and network.
You do get to work on real cases in Consulting Field Projects, and in a few core classes. Also, there are multiple case competitions that you can participate in, which will be the actual issues that the companies are facing, so there's an opportunity to show your skills, and get some visibility.

Every professor at school brings a great experience working in the respective industry, and then joined the school to help students achieve their goals. The classroom studies are based on practical rather than theoretical approach. Also, the understanding between professors and students is mature, so the grades are not affected.
