Jaya Movva, 2013, India

Why I chose Fletcher: When I spoke to a friend from Boston who was also interested in the private sector and international development, he suggested a different type of MBA program, the MIB program at Fletcher. I wanted to pursue a degree that not only taught me the fundamentals of business, but also made me aware of the social, political, economic and cultural impacts that businesses have on regions. Fletcher has a truly international and diverse alumni and student body that can help you in any region in the world. A glance at its curriculum made me feel that Fletcher could open doors for a range of opportunities in the public and private sectors.

On campus life: No day at Fletcher is the same. You learn something new every day through classes, guest speakers and conferences. Topics are diverse and can range from the Greek debt financial crisis to education development models for sub-Saharan Africa. Upon walking into the hall of flags, you see people from all over the world with such varied backgrounds. Fletcher is buzzing with life, and the student body celebrates all types of festivals, some of which you may have not even heard of. The world truly comes together at Fletcher!
