Pat graduated with an MBA from McGill University in 2012. As Director at The MBA Tour, Pat manages client relations in North America and Europe as well as leads events in Asia, Latin America, Europe, Canada and the US.

Peter and I continued on from Syracuse to Ithaca, NY for a visit with The Johnson School at Cornell University. Upon our arrival at Sage Hall, we were greeted by the Johnson admissions team - Eddie Asbie, Ann Richards, and Christine Sneva. We were even joined by Charlotte Taylor, International Recruitment Manager, on Skype - she is based in London! Sage Hall was built in 1875, and was originally intended as a residential building, but now houses the Johnson School.

Johnson is an "intense, collaborative community" that offers two-year, one-year, and Executive MBA options to fit all different types of learning styles and needs. These programs are based on immersion learning, and enroll over 300 students per year in their Ithaca-based classes. Cornell also offers programs that are based in New York City.
