Favorite Rady Memory So Far
Rady’s 2014 Halloween party. It was a chance for domestic and international students to socialize and drink together in a relaxed environment without language or cultural barriers. Innovation at Rady is everywhere – some people made their own, very impressive costumes.
Why Rady Was the Right Choice for You
Top ranking, high employment rate and small class size are important, but Rady has also had positive effects on my life and my values, in addition to my career. After one year here, I can say Rady is an ideal business school. Rady’s values not only taught me how to be a great entrepreneur, but also how to face challenges bravely, solve problems wisely and stay positive. It is all captured in the motto – Never Stop Starting Up. The beauty of life is experience and what Rady can give you is not only distinctive experiences, but also the courage to explore what’s new.
Piece of Advice for Someone Interested in Applying to Rady
Make a decision based on what you would like to do in the future, not on what you’ve done. This might be your last chance to make a change in your career. Go for your dream.

Favorite Rady Course and Why
Rady’s Lab to Market series because it is a great chance to learn how to turn a business idea into a real startup company over three quarter-long courses.
