The program taught me a lot about efficiency, risk-taking, and leadership, and how I can apply those to my work and career development. Having taken my last quantitative course seven years ago, the program marked a paradigm shift for me in many ways. SBSP also challenged me to live up to the level of academic intensity required in an MBA program. Attending was an important personal step, and I am very grateful for the experience. It also introduced to me the idea of pursuing an MBA in the future, which I hadn’t considered beforehand.
