The MBA25 event was very well organized and I enjoyed it as a whole. The most interesting for me was the opportunity to listen and communicate with Russian-speaking graduates from various business schools. Their honest stories about the pros and cons of MBA were the most valuable feedback for me. I think I'll visit the next event too and take even a couple of friends with me)
