The absolute best part about MA-IBP for me were the lifelong friends I made in my cohort from all walks of life. Our cohort became extremely close throughout the program and we have remained in contact since graduating through group chats and have even vacationed together! I especially enjoyed connecting to  cohort members who came from different parts of the country and world – it’s been wonderful to share perspectives and even introduce each other to new cuisine and catch phrases.

The cohort experience is one of the most valuable components of the program. Working closely with incredible people from a wide variety of backgrounds and skillsets allowed me to validate my professional strengths, explore new areas of interest, and witness how successful leaders are able to turn their personal passions into careers. I walked away with an incredible network and close friends who are truly making an impact on the world.
