Student Stories: Samantha Joseph, MBA '09

Samantha Joseph is very comfortable leaping into the unknown. And for this skydiving instructor with a liberal arts background, business school is just that. Samantha gives her thoughts on the value of her untraditional background, her love of travel, and transitioning from parachutes to business suits.

Sam, that was GREAT…I am so impressed with your confidence, your excitement, your good humor, your ability to express your 'ups' and 'downs,' and share your vision of the path you took (and continue to take) to get to MIT Sloan, and beyond. You were absolutely engaging, and I am certain that you will succeed in achieving your goals! Thanks so much for sharing this! Ellen Dounn
