Peris-Mwangi "Hearing from admissions officers and deans has been really helpful in hearing the insights of those who will be evaluating our MBA applications. Also, hearing from current and past MBA candidates about how they thought about the decision to pursue an MBA, costs, and their business school decision was great." - Peris Mwangi, MBALaunch for Undergrads program graduate
