Why did you choose McIntire? I choose McIntire for its great academic reputation and atmosphere. The program will be a great learning experience for business acumen and technical knowledge. In addition, the people in the program are fantastic!

What do you enjoy so far? I have really enjoyed getting to know my fellow classmates in the program. We have really been able to get to know each other really well in the first week through orientation programs, group projects, and exploring Charlottesville.

What has surprised you? I am surprised by the wide range of students in the program. The students come from all over the world, and it is really interesting to hear everyone’s perspectives.
