International Students

Each year about a third of our incoming MBA class is comprised of international students who add to the strength of our community through their diversity of cultures, ideas and vitality.

“One of the reasons why I chose Anderson is the community. We have a very collaborative and respectful AnderFam, and it has been essential for my personal and professional development. I always felt valued and supported by all my colleagues, so it really motivates me to give back whenever I can. Today, I am the president of the Marketing Association and co-president of LABA. It is such a joy to have the opportunity to make a positive impact in this amazing place.”
