Seems like just yesterday that I received that haloed email confirming my place on the full time MBA Program at London Business School. Time since then has been punctuated, in fact almost littered with activities ranging from the wrap up and good byes at office to taking that one last vacation before coming to London. Once here, the pub crawls helped me quickly get familiar with the batch and settle in. This was followed by an absolutely mind blowing orientation week (more on this in my next blog).
Just a note on the diversity at LBS that really drew me here. Our batch has 66 nationalities and speaks 45 languages! In my study group too, I have an IT consultant from France, a luxury cosmetics manager from Russia, a derivatives trader from Australia, a Private Equity analyst from Japan, a management consultant from Egypt, and someone who worked for the government of Canada. And what is more, it’s a fantastic bunch of people at a world class institution.
Well, term starts tomorrow and I feel inundated with the list of things to I need to complete to be ready for class. But the learning is well and truly underway.
