Inclusive and Welcoming

Learning how to lead and contribute within diverse teams is key to every student's MBA experience. We rely on our students to share their voices and different perspectives, and to listen to others in order to broaden their own thinking.

 

"We believe diversity is an essential element in the educational environment we strive to foster — an environment that encourages deep thought and creativity
on the big issues of the day."
