Bill Morton

“I was a marketing analyst for a fitness company, and after meeting with executives and other members of the C-Suite, I realized I needed to learn how business worked holistically. Any MBA provides that insight, but what brought me to Smith was the ability to pair that with an MS in marketing analytics. And that experience just made Smith the total package for me. It’s what’s prepared me to step into my new role at Dell.”

Natalia Olmos

“Everyone says, ‘You need to be uncomfortable in your MBA, and leave your comfort zone and embrace leadership opportunities.’ So I stepped in and ran for president of our Latin MBA Student Association. It gave me leadership experience and that helped me realize I really am skilled in this type of role. Now I’m going to Seattle to be a product manager for Microsoft, and I wouldn’t be ready without my experiences at Smith.”

Illango Vignesh

“The Smith community introduced me to friends and classmates from more than 20 different countries. And the collaboration really goes beyond anything you’d expect. Sure, every school touts its collaborative community. But before our internship interviews, students would lead open refresher lectures on all sorts of topics—finance, presentation skills—just to make sure absolutely everyone was prepared to do their best.”
