Not Your Typical MBA

It’s safe to say, MBA students aren’t what they used to be. Today, students arrive on the campus of graduate business schools with a more diverse background and broader career paths than ever before. And by the time they graduate, they’re not just interested in careers in finance and consulting.
MBAs aren’t just bankers and consultants anymore. They’re marketers, managers, analysts, entrepreneurs, and even doctors! They’re not just interested in working in NYC, Chicago, and LA, but also in Tokyo, Guam, and Finland. And they’re not all from the United States. MBA students come from all over the world and are authorized to work in locations like El Salvador, Nigeria, and Northern Mariana Islands.
