We hear stories of students being alone in their graduate journeys. All of us who were students at one time so understand this concern and try to encourage the students to help each other. See the actions of the professors in the institution you’re interested in. For example, AIPMO/SBS started the LinkedIn forum for DBA/PhD/MSc and MBAs to bring people together. Also, ask students if the professors invite them to conferences to submit and present papers. Below you can find the biographies of some of the professors that are part of the AIPMO/SBS partnership.
