Back to School (and a word of advice for prospective students)

School is back in Session!

So school is back in full swing and what does that mean?

  1. New classes (mostly electives)
  2. Interviews

The picture above was taken at a recent event that Frito-Lay hosted. There are many sessions at this time to find that perfect company for your summer internship.  I don’t know the exact figures but it definitely seems like companies are recruiting in full force. This is great news for us first-years!

Questions for prospective students

While we’re getting back into the groove of class, many prospective students are crunching away at their apps and trying to find the best MBA program for their needs. I host students visiting campus and I got an interesting question last week from a prospective student; “Will we have enough time to work part-time outside class”. Easy answer…NO! Here is a quick list of things you’ll be doing outside of class:

  1. Studying for class
  2. Getting involved with student led groups
  3. MBA+ Projects
  4. Company Meet-n-Greets
  5. Industry Panels
  6. Hot-seat Challenges

This is just a small list of things you’ll be expected to do outside of class. If you don’t take part in at least some of these activities you’re really doing yourself a disservice. So while I would like to say you could work outside school, I really doubt a normal human being will be able to do this. Hope this helps and good luck with those apps!
