There is a great article from Bloomberg Business Week back in 2012 when I was applying my MBA that I think it still quite pertinent today. It’s about networking. Knowing how to network, even if it makes you uncomfortable at first, could be deciding factor of whether or not you reach your goals.
Getting mentally prepared for the MBA is a daunting task, but even worse if the though of the financial cost of going to a well know business school to be able to get that increase in your salary and job of your dreams.
If you are in Business School or in the process of applying there are many great books out there to help you learn some fascinating concepts that you might not find in your classes.
I compiled a list of my 15 favorite books that have helped me both in my education and in my career after the MBA.
Today, received an email with the profession pictures and video from the day of our MBA graduation. The pictures are beautiful, so I figured I would share some (that are me centric). Program Management pulled off the event well with a lovely ceremony in the beautiful Casa Llotja de Mar. The room looked so grand. I still can’t believe that this 18-months of the MBA is over and I have three new little letters after my name.
After 18 quite intense months of studying, traveling, planning events, forming deep friendship, and taking advantage of everything that Barcelona has to offer, I am finally an MBA. It seems like only yesterday I was sitting at my work computer when I received the confirmation of my acceptance to ESADE (and then closing the door and dancing around my office). Looking back that was more than 3 years ago and marked such a major turning point in my life. I’m sad that it has come to an end, but excited about what is going to happen next in my journey (and I must say a little nervous not having a solid plan coming out of this graduation, like I did in undergrad).
