Alex Ferrari, University of Miami

First, I must apologise for not providing part 2 of the “Studying in Paradise” blog last week as promised. These last two weeks have been really busy. But fear not, for I have not forgotten about part 2, which is below.

No offence to other cities around the world, but Miami is a special place. I am sure London is great, as are Chicago and New York. Miami, on the other hand, is paradise.

I have seen television shows that document a day in the life of a celebrity. I could not be further away from a celebrity but I wanted to share with you what a day in the life of student at the University of Miami’s one-year programme entails.

Miami truly is a melting pot of different cultures. The city is home to people from all over the world.

It’s the beginning of something new for me. While excited, I must confess I am also a bit scared and nervous. Questions come and go as I sit outside my apartment’s balcony and look out:

What kind of year is this going to be?
What are my professors like?
I wonder how my fellow MBA students are preparing?
Did I do my laundry today?
