A Peek Behind the MBA Curtain [Ep. 22]

gmat gre mba podcast Apr 29, 2020

You can listen to our full conversation here:

  • Why this aerospace engineer decided to switch careers and go back to business school
  • Why Sam chose the GMAT over the GRE
  • How to answer the "Why business school?" question on your application
  • How the expected ROI factored...
