They say time flies when you’re having fun. That couldn’t be truer for me as an MBA@UNC student. We are now more than half way through the quarter and my cohort is a third of the way through the entire program. It’s hard to believe we’re only a month away from the next immersion weekend in San Francisco since I’ve only just begun to process the experience of the first one we had in December.
One of my admissions essays to MBA@UNC heralded 2011 as my “banner year for novelty and transition.” Wordy and pompous? Undoubtedly. Yet also surprisingly true. From the start, I knew my enrollment in MBA@UNC would bring a unique set of challenges, but I hoped that the opportunities available would assuage any lingering doubts I harbored. Let’s take a look back at the first six months of the program, and see how they stack up against my high bar for “novelty and transition.”
Beyond the fanfare and game day hype, there are significant economic effects behind Super Bowl Sunday. This year, the New York Giants and the New England Patriots will compete for the Vince Lombardi Trophy in Super Bowl XLVI while millions of Americans watch.
Here is a closer look at how the big game will have a financial impact on different industries.
So here I am, getting ready to start term 3 tonight and I am actually looking forward to class tonight. There is something familiar in the routine, plus I’m looking forward to catching up with my classmates (we’ll see if the private chat stays up and running all term). It seems we really have become a “family” as we move through this adventure together and that fact makes prospects for 2012 even better.
For decades, Silicon Valley has been synonymous with innovation. It is difficult to dispute this claim given that it’s the home to technology and Internet giants such as Apple, Google, Amazon, and Facebook. While it hasn’t lost its staying power, other hotspots for entrepreneurship and technology have emerged over the past ten years, in particular, New York’s “Silicon Alley”.
To me, the MBA@UNC program is the embodiment of the kind of technological innovation that will keep us advancing. As little as 10 years ago, a program like MBA@UNC was unimaginable. That a student in North Carolina could be in the same class as someone in California seemed unlikely. Now, the reality is that students may be states (or even continents!) apart, but twice a week, we are in the same place.
