After my time at RPI and during my time at Deloitte Consulting, I was looking for new experiences to fill in the gaps of what I missed during undergrad, business areas I needed to learn about, and personal skills I wanted to strengthen. I decided that I wanted to pursue a MBA to address these needs, so I began making a list of "must-haves" and "nice-to-haves". Besides a top-tier program with a business analytics concentration, I was looking for a strong sense of community, a new town to call home, and a big sports program. Those were my non-negotiables that helped me filter out schools during the research and application process. My first interactions with Ross alumni was full of unwavering support, an immediate sense of family, and that Go Blue! spirit; I was hooked. Upon visiting campus, I was delighted by the charm of campus, the livelihood of Ann Arbor, and the friendliness of everyone I encountered. I immediately texted my partner "This is it. This is where I belong." From there, it was the easiest decision of my life to pursue my MBA at The Ross School of Business.
