Why Pursue an MBA?

We kick the day off by answering the big question: why go to business school? When does it make sense? And how do you get there?

Paying for an MBA

It's easy to get sticker shock looking at the cost of schools like Stanford. But, aid is abundant, and an MBA can be more affordable than it seems.

Career Panels

Where might business school lead you? Get a firsthand look at MBA careers through panels led by current and former students.

Life Design

We'll explore where you're at, where you want to go and whether an MBA will be helpful in achieving your goals.

Questions? Thoughts? Ideas?

We'd love to hear from you.
