Integrated Student Experience

AN MBA PROGRAM THAT MIRRORS MARKET DEMAND

People usually get their MBA for one reason: to get a better job. That’s why Simon recently revamped our student experience to ensure every part of our program is designed around that goal. It’s called the Integrated Student Experience (ISE).

The ISE tailors your education and activities to match your career goals so you’ll get the resources you need when you need them. That means you’ll be prepared when your industry’s recruiting season comes around—and you’ll be ready to contribute immediately when you start your new position.

 

DEVELOPING A PLAN THAT WORKS FOR YOU

During the spring and summer—before you’ve even set foot on campus—we’ll help you explore areas of study to find one that matches your interests and talents. We offer a general management track that allows you to choose from a broad selection of courses. We also offer 10 MBA specializations for a deep dive into the area that interests you most.

After you’ve selected your specialization, we’ll create a plan that ensures everything you do at Simon contributes to the outcome you want.

YOUR COURSEWORK: WELL-ROUNDED AND FOCUSED

In the first year, you’ll dive into several courses based on your specialization to prepare you for your internship. At the same time, our innovative curriculum will expose you to the fundamental, big-picture topics that draw on Simon’s expertise in analytics and economics-based thinking. You can round out your education by earning a minor to get an even deeper understanding of certain areas.

 

YOUR CO-CURRICULAR ACTIVITIES: RELATABLE AND RELEVANT

We get to know every Simon MBA student, so we can recommend the clubs, case competitions, international immersions, and treks that suit your specialization and develop your personal style of leadership.

 

YOUR CAREER SEARCH: PERSONAL AND PROFESSIONAL

You’ll also work with a Simon Career Consultant and a Simon Career Advisor, who will guide you on everything from exploring your job options to writing cover letters. Combined, these career search resources will help you stand out and position you to succeed.
