Brian Balduzzi, MBA '18

“Cornell’s MBA program offered me multiple opportunities to engage with leadership, advocacy, service, and collaboration through its student activities, clubs, and programs. These opportunities might be available at other schools, but few programs have as many student-led initiatives as Johnson at Cornell.”
