Transcript

Speaker 1: What we really try to do for the Syms MBA program is, first give students a real broad foundation and really essentials of business from data to marketing, to accounting.

Speaker 2: One of the key things about being able to learn entrepreneurship is developing your entrepreneurial mindset. That is a mindset that will help you excel in whatever domain you are in, whether it's in large companies, whether it's in your personal life, any of the ways in which you're going to be able to learn how to make better decisions, how to deal with uncertainty, how to be able to perceive opportunities and pursue them.

Speaker 3: I'm using the skills that I gained in Yeshiva University everyday. I'm so grateful for my experience. Learning how to craft a message and learn how to speak to other people. Learning how to connect to people, even when there's such a big cultural difference. Those are all skills I gained in Yeshiva. I think my favorite thing about being a Yeshiva University student is the humanity that is built into all the programs. I was nervous coming into the MBA program. I was the only person in my class who was not already working in finance or marketing or the CEO of their own company or doing something that was already so deep in the business world. I'm coming from the nonprofit world. I'm coming from the helping space and I wasn't sure if I belonged. But from day one, the professors and the directors of the program made me feel like I belong and they made sure to pull me aside to make sure that I was understanding material that was new to me and they made sure to show me how this is applicable to the nonprofit world as well as for the profit world. You're so much more than you think you are. You're capable of so much more than you think you are.

At YU Sy Syms, we believe the numbers on the bottom line are only as meaningful as their impact on the people who helped get them there. Even the most quantitative courses in the online MBA program adhere to the ethos that, at its heart, business is a human experience. Every transaction is structured by competing goals and desires, every new venture is launched to improve real lives, and every accomplishment and challenge affects people both within the company and beyond its walls.

The approach to ethical leadership you will hone as an online MBA student takes people into account at every step. The relationships you'll form will be founded on mutual understanding rather than pure utility; you will manage your team and interact with your colleagues with respect and decency; and you will define business success as an outcome that first and foremost improves lives and strengthens communities.

I gained a lot in terms of soft skills: a deeper understanding of how business relationships work, the effect that companies have on their employees, how to hire and identify opportunities. I'm definitely more knowledgeable, more aware of impacts.
