Culture and Community

The Jenkins Program aims to bring people of multicultural backgrounds together to share their diverse experiences to grow personally, academically and professionally.

Our Community

Here at Poole College, you will join a community of like-minded people with whom you’ll form lasting relationships — whether in class, through one of our many extra-curricular activities or at one of our frequent social and professional events.

We consistently hear that our students and their partners develop close, lifelong friendships with classmates, faculty and staff during their time in the program.

It’s the personal connections I made that far exceeded my expectations of any MBA program.
