Albers is a very busy place these
days. We had a career fair, business ethics week, Morgan Stanley career day,
Marcus & Millichap career night, business
career in technology seminar, Microsoft
MBA recruiting mixer, Tableau student career night and many more. Albers
is keeping everybody busy be it day or night (career day/career night). We also
had a wine and cheese event for grad students of Seattle U and ice-cream social.
Amongst all this I was busy with my assignments, group projects and
mid-terms. An important lesson I have learned is - if you are a full time
student, taking classes in the main campus is a better option. You get to attend
more events, though east side has its own advantages such as shorter travel (if
you live on east side), classes get over a little early (generally), and
it interesting location. But still main campus is main campus.
Next couple of weeks are going to be hectic and thrilling. Final
presentations, exams and final grades. I had great teams to work with, the
outcome is absolutely astonishing. At no point it felt like work, I think
that’s most exciting aspect of MBA. Assignments and projects are based on how
you apply your knowledge. It’s fun to solve problems. In many of my classes we
had great discussions on unique cases, it always gave me a chance to appreciate
the different opinions people have.
Assignment by assignment, week by
week we are almost through our spring quarter. I am really excited and looking
forward to summer quarter for 2 reasons. Firstly, I am taking leadership class,
so I will be able to go on a weekend trip with my classmates and secondly I am
taking my very first elective. It may sound crazy but I am so looking forward
to it. This summer Albers is introducing new certificate courses and
specialization, one of them is Business Analytics and that is the one for
me. So let’s see where it’ll take me.
