We are so excited to welcome our new bloggers for the 2010-2011 academic year. This year, these eight new bloggers (six from the MBA Class of 2012 and two from the Class of 2011) will join continuing (now second-year) blogger Kalin McKenna to share their experience as MBA students at The University of Texas at Austin McCombs School of Business.
Like previous bloggers, these eight will give us a sneak peek into their lives as students. They will provide us with their unique perspectives on orientation, cohorts, study groups, the plethora of organizations on campus, Austin’s unmatched culture, the McCombs community, recruiting, global trips and their studies abroad.
And without further adieu, meet the new bloggers:
Morgan Brown: Morgan is an avid blogger who is in his first year of the program. He is originally from Houston, Texas, but has spent the last several years in Connecticut. Morgan will have lots to share about his time back in Texas and his studies in Entrepreneurship and Marketing.
Anwesha Chatterjee: Anwesha is a first-year MBA student from India, who is pursuing a concentration in General Management. As an international student at McCombs, she can offer that unique perspective on life as a student at Texas.
Leah Clayton: Leah is a second-year MBA student, who is spending her second year pursuing a double degree from WHU Otto Beisheim in Germany. Undoubtedly, she will give us a taste of what it is like to study abroad as she adjusts to a new country, school and culture.
Jonathan Felix: Jonathan is a second-year student from a small town in Ohio. He graduated from Ohio State and has been traveling the country as a consultant ever since. This year, he will have plenty to share as he finishes his journey here at McCombs and looks forward to his next step.
Kristin Miller: A first-year student from Connecticut (via New York), Kristin is a History of Art major from Cornell, who is pursuing a concentration in Marketing. Look forward to hearing about all things Austin and her adjustment to her new life as an MBA student.
Alex Niebrugge: Alex is a first-year student from Colorado that attended the University of Michigan. He spent the last few years in the Financial Services industry in New York. Alex will have quite a bit to share about Austin’s great outdoors, Mexican food, the UT culture and his studies as he concentrates in Finance.
Morgan Simental: The photographer of the group, Morgan is a first-year student that is joining McCombs from the West Coast (Santa Barbara, California to be exact). Morgan will give a pictorial view of his MBA experience.
Jany Xu: Jany is a first-year student who has lived in China, Germany and Houston, Texas. She graduated from University of Pennsylvania’s Wharton Business School, where she studied marketing and management. Look forward to reading insider tips about navigating the MBA program at McCombs.
