The Jayhawk Experience
The cohort experience for me were 29 other ideas coming at you at once and trying to figure out how to blend someone's ideas with the academic structure and take what the professors said to counter that, to work through different situations. And it was just enlightening and amazing.
I think the word that comes to my mind is magical.
I can't think of a better way to start your business career.
Swathie Rajesh Shenoy:
We have really sharp candidates here in our class, and we are always trying to bring something new to the table. I feel like we have different experiences and different perspectives, and that just enriches the program a lot more.
For me, the culture felt like a door that was cracked open to a bright light. And so we got to walk through it together.
I've been able to learn and experience a lot that I wouldn't have been able to otherwise.
Yeah. I mean, I have this bond with them, which is unprecedented. Been to school before, but this is different.
The faculty and the staff, the classmates, and your colleagues and friends, it's truly an incredible experience.
Picking an MBA program is challenging, but once you find the right one, it's amazing.
There's something about the Midwest and something about this university where I believe where the positive intersection of smart and nice. That is what makes this place special. That's the ethos of this place that is in the air we breathe here and that's what appeals to me.
