Why Fletcher: Selecting the best graduate school was a challenging process for me. There were other programs, including business schools that advertised some of the same attributes as Fletcher, but I I believe Fletcher offers more contextual knowledge than a traditional MBA and will take my education to the next level.  As an MIB, I am taking all of the core classes that I would in a traditional MBA program but am also exposed to courses (and peers) that provide experience in other areas of international business. 

On the diversity of my peers:  Within the first week at Fletcher I had already become friends with students from five different continents. Each of them brought different strengths and backgrounds to Fletcher and it has been exciting to learn about their experiences.
