The Back to B-School Grind

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.

This typically ends up happening when I try to study in bed.

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?
