The most important quality you can, and must, have coming in to an MBA program is an open mind to change. You will not be the same person leaving the GSM as you were coming in to it. The value of receiving your degree from the GSM comes from the people you meet along that way that will help mold you. If you approach every opportunity and person with an open mind there is no limit to amount of growth you can achieve in two short years.
