Full-Time MBA Program
Meet the MBA Student Ambassadors


If you want to gain the perspectives of real students, our Merage MBA Student Ambassadors are definitely the people you should connect with. They’ll give you the inside story and answer your questions about the Merage MBA experience and why they chose the Merage School for their MBA.  They can also host you on campus for a class visit, lunch with students, or a tour of campus.
