Earning an MBA shouldn't be just about earning a degree. It shouldn't be just about getting that new job or promotion. While those things clearly matter, so should the overall experience of being in an MBA program. Here are just a few opportunities our students find to accentuate their classroom experience. Doing so helps them maximize their time in the program, cultivate their personal and professional networks, and allows them to hone their leadership and communication skills.
Be sure to also take a moment to learn about other ways Baylor MBA students get involved by giving back. Visit our Community Involvement page.
Baylor Student Chapter of the Adam Smith Society
"The Adam Smith Society works to provide a venue where this discussion of foundational ideas can be explored and applied to the current economic environment. We believe that MBA students and business professionals should acquire more than just expertise in areas such as management, marketing, and quantitative analysis—as important as these skills are. They should also come to understand—and be able to defend—the nature of the economic system that fosters job creation, wealth generation, the alleviation of poverty globally, and scientific innovation." www.adamsmithsociety.com
