We thought that many of you battling through the business school application process might benefit from some thoughts and insights from others who went through the experience. To that end, we started On the Record: Q&A with BC Alums. Last time around we spoke with Gabe Perez, and before that we got insights from Rhomaro Powell and Radina Russell. This time, we’ve tapped Lauren Sickles to provide her take on some interesting business school questions.
Lauren graduated from Columbia Business School and now doubles as a financial services professional and entrepreneur.
Why did you go to business school?
In college, I attended a mentoring event organized by the women’s group at Stanford GSB. I was extremely impressed by the background and the quality of both the students and the alumnae. It opened my eyes to the types of career opportunities available to business school students. After attending that event, it wasn’t a matter of “if” I would go to business school, but “when”.
