Student Stories

A young woman with curly back hair looks at a computer monitor while a man stands next to her pointing at the screen.

“If you’re willing to put in the work, the MBI program is one of the most rewarding experiences you can have. The culture in the program is indicative of the culture in the industry, and a lot of people here have the right attitude — they really care about what they’re doing and what they’re part of.”
