Why choose Wisconsin MBA?
I chose the Wisconsin School of Business because of its specialization model, which enabled me to hyper-focus on product management. The people and the culture were also other factors that led me to choose WSB. Wisconsin’s motto is Together, Forward, and the school does a brilliant job of reinforcing the importance of teamwork and cooperation. When interviewing for the program and speaking with previous students, I immediately felt a sense of community and belonging. Many aspects of MBA life can be competitive (case competitions, recruitment, etc.). It was vital for me to find a program that emphasized a supportive and collaborative culture, and I found that at Wisconsin.

Be open to new opportunities to learn new things not only in academic but also focus in other activities such as networking, attending conferences and case competition which will help to develop a holistic overview.

Fun fact:
I love to go for treks.
