Hello, my friends… and welcome to my Texas MBA Student Blog. Make yourself at home, send me e-mails, comment on my posts, hook up with me on your social network of choice, and don’t forget to check out the other student bloggers because they’re fantastic.
My name is Dan and Cleveland is the city that I come from. I’m a second year at McCombs and I’m excited to share some of my experiences with you. Before b-school, I was in Corporate Sales for AT&T Mobility. I started off selling wireless technology to businesses (think: the Droid you got from work or the coffee shop that runs their POS on an iPad) before taking an opportunity to train AT&T’s various salesforces on sales skills and new products (think: that 4-hour training class your boss made you sit through). Now, I’m looking forward… both to the next 2 years and whatever waits beyond. I chose McCombs because the people here seemed really sharp and the program seemed plugged-in to this energetic city. I was right.
I’m starting to get good at balancing the responsibilities of school with the non-stop rush of things to do in Austin. At school, I’m involved in several student orgs – the Sports and Entertainment Management Association, the Entrepreneur Society, Net Impact, and a few others – and I’m developing a crush on my financial calculator. Outside of the program, I’ll be watching baseball, working on my Urdhva Dhanurasana, or stressing over how I can possibly see all of these great bands play live.
