THE HULT STUDENT Philip Prohaska German Class of 2019 MBA with a Dual Degree in Masters in Business Analytics San Francisco campus Languages spoken: English and German Why Hult? My aim was to use Hult as a catalyst to expand my business experience outside of engineering. I wanted to add management and business knowledge to my technical expertise to understand the holistic picture of business. The diversity at Hult, from the students to the staff, is something I would not want to miss out on. Biggest challenge? I was aware of the fact that Hult claimed to be an international business school but I didn’t expect it to be true to that extent. The challenge of communicating with so many different cultures has been an eye-opening and valuable experience. On a daily basis, I get to talk about contemporary topics with my cohort. We discover each other’s views on our own country’s issues and we gain a unique insight into different cultures, which is something that gives you a huge advantage within business. “We gain a unique insight into different cultures, which is something that gives you a huge advantage within business.” Biggest lesson learned? Overall, I’ve learned about how important it is to learn from others. Whenever we discuss cases in class, professors ask about our personal experiences. Once we start sharing our past and everyone begins to chime in—that’s when we learn the most. In class—and in business—it’s imperative to be open to other people’s insights and opinions and to not only learn from your own mistakes and experiences but also from others’. Hult is... like family. The staff, including the Deans, are so attentive. They remember your name, talk to you between classes, and always have an open ear for any kind of problem. 24
