Our students have different reasons for seeking an MBA from the Lake Forest Graduate School of Management. Some are business owners looking for leadership training and others are managers or subject matter experts looking to advance within their company. All of them come together to and gain the principles and best practices to achieve their goals from our faculty and fellow students. Our Class of 2012 Valedictorian, Dr. Jesse Marymont, an anesthesiologist for North Shore University Health System in Glenview, had his own unique path to LFGSM.
