"My favorite thing about Simon and my entire experience here was the people. Not just my peers or classmates, but everyone I ever interacted with. From day one, everyone has been so helpful. Once I got here, I was in touch with Student Engagement all the time. From my job search, to any courses I had difficulty with, I could go to anybody in Student Engagement and talk to them, and they would be more than willing to help me out."
"The main reason I would recommend Simon to prospective students is the Internship Track. That really, really helped me to get where I am today. Obviously the curriculum and classes, they definitely did as well, but that extra six months of the internship that I got, I think that's very, very important for an international student."

"I worked with the Simon Venture Fund for three quarters on two different projects. I was able to visit the client's headquarters, talk to the CEO face-to-face, prepare the pitch, and present it on a conference call with the board members. It was really beneficial to us, especially those of us without much work expereince before coming to Simon."
"The community may be the most important factor to me. The great students I met who will be colleagues and friends and partners in the future. The professors I met who will continuously support me and that I have conversations with. The people from the Career Managament Center who continuously support the students in the pursuit of their dream career. I'd say the people are the greatest thing about Simon."

"I'd recommend Simon to students because one, you get to learn with great financial minds like Gregg Jarrell and Robert Novy-Marx. Apart from that, you also build relationships with many people from all over the world, which is a good thing to have when you're starting your networking in the United States."

"Knowledge is being created here, it's not just being taught. Whenever I have a question about finance or I'm just curious to learn something, you can always find a professor who has been studying it or who has been researching what you want to know, and that's just amazing."
"I always felt like I could ask others for help here, even from people who weren't in my program. I remember one situation when I was preparing for an interview, I talked to three or four MBA students. They made time to talk to me on the phone and meet me at school to really make sure I was ready for my interview even though they were all so busy. One even helped me mock interview over the phone as he was driving to New Jersey for a meeting. That was really important to me."
