 On selecting Fletcher: Fletcher was highly recommended to me by my former boss, Fletcher alum Mario Marconini. The flexibility of the school’s curriculum allows students to pursue a wide range of career paths, think creatively, and work as a team. Fletcher places students in an environment that resembles a social sciences laboratory, where different interests and passions collide to result in solutions to current and future problems.

Favorite class: My favorite class (so far) has been Starting New Ventures. The class approaches business cases from an entrepreneur's point of view. Professor Bhidé challenges students to think and analyze every aspect of a business before making a major decision. Classes are interactive, intense, and extremely rewarding.
