Recent MBA Al Dea (right) found that new business school grads learned their most valuable lessons outside the classroom.

This past spring, a new batch of students graduated business school, eager to put their MBAs to use.

And despite having spent countless hours spent studying the intricacies of finance, accounting, marketing, and operations, many of these graduates will tell you that the most important thing they learned at business school wasn't from a textbook or lecture.

Alex Dea, a senior consultant at Deloitte Digital and 2015 graduate of the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill's Kenan-Flagler Business School, discovered this when he recently interviewed nine new grads from some of the top b-schools in the United States for his blog MBA Schooled , which he started two years ago.

We went through Dea's interviews with these graduates , in which they reflect about their past two years, and highlighted what they consider to be the lesson that will stick with them longest. The common thread is that while you don't need to go to business school to learn about economics and statistics, the school experience itself is what's most valuable.
