Kogod Decision Criteria: Simply put, it was the people. I never realized how important making a personal connection would play in the selection of my MBA path. Their effort to get to know me and the chances I was given to connect with the people of Kogod made choosing this school one of the easiest decisions I’ve ever made. Reading statistics and reviews is one thing, but it has barely taken a semester at Kogod to realize that all of that is, at least to some degree, subjective. Getting to know Kogod personally ended up being the guiding force in my decision process.

Kogod Value: I have come into Kogod looking at this as my big chance. In pushing myself to be an active participator in class and activities within the Kogod organization, I’ve come to appreciate how much Kogod as a whole welcomes and encourages this effort.  To me, the phrase “you get out of it what you put into it” has never rung truer.
