MGB: 2014

I clearly remember the day in August 2013 when 32 eager individuals first met each other at the Gustavson School of Business. Quietly, and rather nervously, we all walked around introducing ourselves; we talked about our backgrounds, our career ambitions, and what we hoped to gain from the program. Fast-forward 8 months, through the hours of studies, group projects, presentations and cultural experiences, and we can all agree that we gained a vast amount of knowledge and experience that no other program would have been able to deliver. However, one thing that none of us anticipated is the bond that we all created. Moving 3 times to 3 different cities and adapting to 3 completely diverse cultures, brought us together like nothing else we have ever experienced. I am happy to say that I walked away with more than I had hoped for - the education, the experience, and 32 great friends for life.
