Kogod Decision Criteria: I chose to attend KSB mostly because of the small classroom size. I knew having a small class would give me an opportunity to get to know my classmates better and build closer relationships with classmates and faculty alike. A small classroom size also allows for more discussion during class, which makes the learning material all the more valuable. The location of KSB is another reason I enrolled in the school, as DC is home to several large companies both in the federal and private sector, which provides great networking opportunities.
Kogod Value: I love the close community we have at KSB. It makes it comfortable to talk to everyone and it makes it easier to have gatherings outside of school. Also, I love that the class is very diverse, both in culture and experience. The diversity makes discussions in and out of class very interesting and enlightening.
Another aspect I like is that the KSB program really makes use of being in the DC region. Most of our projects so far include us having to visit companies in the DC area. All of our speakers during the weekly Leadership Luncheon Series are managers and executives from large companies such as Microsoft, World Bank, and SEC, to name a few. This aspect of KSB really makes it stand out and takes our learning experience to the next level.
