"The opportunities to learn and grow within and beyond the classroom at Rady are unparalleled. I chose the Rady MBA because of its dynamic nature, spirit of innovation, small class size, not to mention the prestigious and experienced faculty. Above all, I have learned the most from my classmates and strong alumni network; be it through mentorship in student organizations, career outreach and company treks, lively classroom discussion, or in startup settings. The MBA has challenged me to gain both technical and soft skills in diverse areas ranging from Strategic Development to Financial Analysis. I am confident that my Rady MBA and upcoming Sony PlayStation internship, coming directly from my undergraduate engineering studies, will enable me to enter industry and become a Technology leader."

"The MBA experience at Rady has not only met my expectations, but has also exceeded them. With a small class size and openness of Rady to take risks, I've been able to take advantage of countless opportunities to have significant impacts in the classroom (through classroom discussions), among the Rady community (through the student clubs), and within the business community (through direct interactions with key executive members during networking events). I really believe that I am part of a supportive community that helps me to achieve my career goals and allows me to help the school and my classmates achieve their goals."

"When I came here a year ago, there’s no way I could’ve imagined what I have become now.. Rady MBA has given me a trigger to upgrade the way I think, the way I act, and the way I feel. Clubs, Independent Study, Case Competition, Entrepreneur Challenge, and even Internship - I was able to do so many new things beyond the curriculum, and they certainly enriched my student life so much more than I expected. Rady is a new and a relatively small sized school, which enabled me to get to know and befriend everyone else. Rady staff and faculty are always right next to me when I needed some help. Alumni and community are very friendly and reachable whenever I had career related questions. As a whole, the innovative environment helped me realized my initially impossible goals. The background of my classmates in my cohort is extremely diverse; while collaborating with them, I learned a lot from their experience, and I found myself frequently trying my best to contribute to this community as well. For me, the life at Rady MBA has been a blast; it has not just been a learning process of business knowledge, but also a real case study of how I should be surrounded by outstanding people."

Post Graduate Goals
To launch my own startup

Favorite Rady Memory So Far
Rady’s 2014 Halloween party. It was a chance for domestic and international students to socialize and drink together in a relaxed environment without language or cultural barriers. Innovation at Rady is everywhere – some people made their own, very impressive costumes.

Why Rady Was the Right Choice for You
Top ranking, high employment rate and small class size are important but Rady also has had positive effects on my live and my values in addition to my career. After one year here, I can say Rady is an ideal business school. Rady’s values not only taught me how to be a great entrepreneur, but also how to face challenges bravely, solve problems wisely and stay positive.  It is all captured in the motto – Never Stop Starting Up.  The beauty of life is experience and what Rady can give you is not only distinctive experiences, but also the courage to explore what’s new.

Piece of Advice for Someone Interested in Applying to Rady
Make a decision based on what you would like to do in the future, not on what you’ve done. This might be the last chance to make a change in your career. Go for your dream.

"The Rady MBA experience is giving me more than what I expected. Before coming to Rady, my goal was to gain business knowledge and have a different life experience. In the short period of time, I have learned every aspect of business management, including finance, economy, leadership, strategy and marketing. The Lab to Market class provided me the entire process on how to launch a new business idea. Every one in our cohort is smart and friendly. I have learned much from my classmates. The Rady clubs and activities give me many opportunities to practice the skills learned in class. San Diego has a very good entrepreneur environment and the Rady MBA can help those who want to start their own business. And the climate is very pleasurable. I enjoy my life here very much and I feel more confident to become an entrepreneur or a product manager."
