On Fletcher’s approach: Fletcher's approach in providing an education to its graduate students intrigued me from the very beginning of my graduate school search. I felt like it was unique and very pragmatic to participate in a two-year program that naturally incorporated international relations with business into one degree. Once I was accepted to Fletcher and other business schools, I found myself comparing every other business school’s MBA program to Fletcher's MIB program, and could not help but think that I would deeply regret not taking advantage of this different, yet extraordinarily practical graduate school experience in Boston. With Fletcher’s location in the heart of a city with such great academic energy, I simply could not resist enrolling at Fletcher.

On what has surprised me:  One of the things that has surprised me about Fletcher is the uniqueness of each student's experiences, even in the classroom. My education will be unique from my colleagues at other schools as well as my fellow Fletcher classmates. There are only a few required courses, and I am free to design my own educational experiences based upon my background and career goals. At Fletcher, I will not be forced to utilize time and effort on courses in which I am not interested or that would be minimally beneficial to my career goals.
