The Rady School Welcomes Incoming MBA Students
The 2011 Full-Time MBA and FlexMBA for Working Professionals entering classes - representing highly intelligent and dynamic individuals from more than 16 countries across the globe - started classes this fall, beginning a lifelong relationship with their fellow students and with the Rady School. Each year, the Rady School admits a small but outstanding group of applicants to join the remarkable community of students, alumni and faculty.
"This year's class brings exceptionally strong academic backgrounds and diverse professional experience to our program," said Dean Robert S. Sullivan. "As a group, they have demonstrated strong personal commitment to ensure not only their professional success, but the success of the entire Rady School community."
Since the first MBA class matriculated in 2004, the Rady School has attracted students with a focus on innovative-driven organizations. The Full-Time MBA class of 2013 is highly educated - 21 percent have advanced degrees - with a large percentage from academic backgrounds in economics/finance, math and business. Working professionals joined the Rady School this fall in the FlexMBA program under two formats - weekend classes and evening classes. As with the Full-Time MBA class, a significant number of students have advanced degrees, mainly in medicine, engineering and biosciences, representing San Diego's preeminence in the technology, biotechnology, and healthcare industries.
"From the hundreds of applications we received for the Full-Time and FlexMBA programs, these students stand out for their impressive credentials," said Margie Frazee, director of MBA Recruitment and Admissions. "They are highly focused, motivated, and entrepreneurial."
