The following is an computer-generated summary of the video transcript.
Mm Hi, my name is Cyril and I'm a rising second year at Harvard Business School. So what really led me to business school had learned a lot, developed a lot of really great skills, especially coming right out of undergrad, but was ready for a next challenge and to pivot to something kind of different, I realized I needed to have an opportunity to continue to develop skills and to learn and to really set myself up for success and business school made a lot of sense how dynamic of an experience it is to be able to build your network, to be able to learn skills that will help to really progress young career forward. I applied to a number of different schools, including HBs and ultimately just really fell in love with H. B. S from the very beginning, from the curriculum that they offer. I think there's really something powerful about the case method and it really teaches you how to, I think in a dynamic way and to really learn from your peers and to learn in a degree of uncertainty, which I think mimics the business world and a really important way the network opportunities, the large alumni network that we have in addition to our incredible classmates to come from, from fields all over from places all over the world, just being in my section alone and taking classes with one of the most diverse groups of people I've ever been with, which is one of the best learning experiences. I really think it's been a great opportunity for me to push myself not even just in the classroom, but to be able to find the right resources from the career and professional development office too extracurriculars where I could really start to apply to leadership principles we've learned in class and to learn more about real estate and to learn more about social enterprise, HBs has just been an incredible fit.
