Working so intensely with classmates from around the world day in and day out meant that, by year’s end, their experiences became my experiences. Today, as I leave the program, my perspective encompasses a wide swath of countries, cultures, and industries. I could not have developed that expanded view any other way.Amy Gowder Graban, SF ’10
