Culture and fit is super important to me. The reality is that you are going to spend a lot of time (emphasis on a lot) with these people over the two years, so you should like and feel comfortable with them. Everyone I met at Simon through the application process was super accommodating and helpful, administration and students alike. The culture here is to help one another: #SimonStrong. It felt as if I was immersed in the Simon community even before I was admitted. So the opportunity to be part of an intimate community where I can develop tangible, close relationships with my classmates was valuable to me. Additionally, half of the Simon MBA Class of 2019 class is international, so it is rewarding to learn from their experiences.
