"The Rady MBA experience thus far has been phenomenal. I have learned so much in such a short period of time about every aspect of business; from marketing and finance to organizational strategy and leadership. I have had the opportunity to work with individuals who are “the best and the brightest” and have quickly become close friends. Their perspectives have shed a new light on my own experiences, and I can honestly say that I am a better leader than ever before. I am confident that I will be able to enter a new company and begin contributing immediately."

"While working for a government-subsidized company, I realized that getting an MBA would be the best way to help move my career forward. Since UCSD is known as a prosperous research university with many high-tech companies in and around San Diego, I knew that as a Rady student I would have the chance to meet academics, as well as entrepreneurs. This makes the Rady School really unique."

"Rady is unlike any other MBA program because of the people. My classmates aspire to not only pursue their own dreams, but help others reach their goals as well. I always pictured business school to be a suit-and-tie affair, constantly discussing Wall Street news. The Rady School is more than that - it has given me the platform to find myself, to find how I can benefit my future, and potentially others in the process. Once you step inside the Rady School, you feel as though you’re part of something special."

"The Rady School is a fairly new business school, but everyone here cares. The administration is focused on hiring the best faculty - it's not every day you learn from a Nobel Laureate. Rady is fortunate to have Harry Markowitz teach and empower the students with his knowledge. Additionally, the cohesiveness and collaboration that can be found with the students, as well as the small class size, makes Rady unique. You really get the sense that the staff and faculty want to help students develop and grow."
