“An MBA is a challenging social academic voyage that involves many exciting experiences and hopefully ends with a full time job offer at hand. I believe that what makes the MBA experience unique are the people you interact and network with. Some would remain friends for life.”

“I am a true believer in living life to the fullest. The MBA for me has proven to be one of the best experiences of my life. It was never about ROI (Return on Investment), a driver to make a lot of money, nor a way to jump a couple of steps in the corporate ladder. For me it is about an exciting an energizing environment that allows you to make friends with incredibly talented individuals from all over the world. It is about exploring a world of interests and opportunities. It is about learning from others and making myself a better person.”

“I came to business school straight from the army and to these days I still remember my superior officers asking me why the hell I am leaving the army. Within a few weeks I was already schmoozing with potential employers that I could only read about in the Israeli business press and going out for drinks with people who I never imagined I would meet. Today, I could answer that question by telling them that I would never have gotten my dream job and would never have met my new best friends from Argentina, Canada, Austria and the US had I not attended business school. It was a very challenging journey, but one that I would never miss.”
