What prompted you to enroll in SBSP?

A

I knew Chicago would be a great place for me to discover the American business world, particularly given the vast number of corporations that comprise Chicago’s business metropolis.

Do you feel like SBSP helped you during the business school admissions process?

A

SBSP helped me with the admissions process by showing me perfectly why I wanted my MBA from Booth. Thus, it was easier for me to communicate in my essays why I believed I was the right candidate and how Booth could help me achieve my future goals. I could easily refer to different resources, classes, and activities as I had firsthand experience from SBSP.

Did your experience in SBSP give you greater insight into what studying for an MBA is like?

A

After I came back to Mexico City from my SBSP experience, my family asked me: “If you could describe your experience in a few words, how would you describe it?” My answer was: “It was truly like a mini MBA.” From teamwork case discussions and modules of the LEAD program to the feeling of being part of a collaborative culture with tomorrow’s global leaders, I realize how similar my SBSP experience was to being a student in the Full-Time Program. In addition, during SBSP you realize that time becomes the most valuable asset. This relates perfectly to what happens during the everyday nonstop MBA experience.
