Classes are in full swing and my life has converted once again to classes all day, group meetings all night. I’ve been dreaming about the free nights that come with a nine to five job, and I’m feeling super ready to graduate.
BUT good things are happening that can’t be ignored.
First, I was selected me as a team lead for a start-up project. This means I’ve been working like a busy bee with my MBA team. I know something like 90% of startups fail, but there’s always the slim chance we won’t, in which case the head investor has probed at my interest in the CEO position. That’s pretty rad.
Second, I actually like a few of my classes. As a first year MBA I was tied largely to core courses (finance, accounting, blech), but as a second year I get to choose over 50%. I’m actually enjoying my corporate social responsibility class and my consumer behavior class, which is a great feeling since last year I didn’t have any I really looked forward to.
Lastly, I’m dead set on going a spring break study abroad. It’s a short trip, but I’m thinking I might head over to China… or maybe Japan… Regardless, I have something really big to look forward to toward the end of the year.
I hope everyone’s year is off to a great start!
Anyone else working on a practicum/consulting project?
Anyone done a b-school study abroad?
