As one of female students in the 35th MBA programme of SDA Bocconi, I have joined the Women in Business Club on the programme.
We have only been studying for seven weeks, but we already have to answer this question : what job do I want to do next year after graduation and how do I get it ?
We started as a rag-tag bunch – crippled by illness, too many assignments, missed dates and lost time, but somehow my team “The 5 Arrows” beat the internal competition at Cambridge to attend the Venture Capital international competition at London Business School on Friday.
After making some money in the markets this week (selling some corporate bonds in Argentina for clients, Irsa US dollar denominated bonds for those interested) I can happily say that I am planning a trip to Miami after the mid terms without regret.
The rather ominous looking gap in my lecture timetable this week is entitled ‘assignments’.
Wow. What a week. I landed back in cold, grey Hong Kong this morning. It is a far cry from the sunny beach-side walk in San Diego on Saturday after the San Diego State Sports case competition.
When you have 105 people in an MBA class, there will always be birthdays to celebrate. And apparently this is the high season for birthday parties as well as internship interviews…
With only three weeks of class left this term, one class that is becoming particularly exciting is marketing strategy with Prof Carpenter.
Most students miss having a regular salary.
I have been considering using the platform that this blog offers to promote the MBA Oath to a wider audience.
I will have to pick a stock for next week for the Cima club, to be able to apply to value investing later.
I recently blogged that I have a few more weeks of classes as a full-time Vlerick MBA student left before my graduation. There is still a good deal of time remaining before my actual graduation in September.
As I write this blog, I just finished yet another marathon meeting with my business plan team here at Vlerick.
I just got back from another interview session, exhausted after having three cups of coffee and two interviews in a row.
Former US Treasury Secretary, Henry “Hank” Paulson Jr will be speaking at the University of Chicago next week.
Today I realised something quite interesting about time. I have two weeks left of class, followed by finals and that will be the end of my first semester as a graduate student. Time has flown…
According to an old African proverb, ‘The best way to eat the elephant standing in your path is to cut it into little pieces’.
And so begins another hectic week of MBA life.
It has been an intense week. From visiting a hedge fund manager on Friday morning to spending time with a friend who is staying with me.
Well, I have arrived in San Diego and spent the day seeing the sights. It is a lovely city with lots of surprises – a gorgeous waterfront, lovely park and wonderful historic quarter.
The past few weeks have all gone by in a blur for me. At this moment I only have six weeks of classes remaining as a full-time Vlerick IMBA student.
It’s my birthday today. I’m turning the corner on my twenties and thirty seems so, so, so, so old!
This is the name of my team which we have chosen for our four-day leadership training.
