Well, this is it.

The end of the Dubai trip. The end of the Rise General Trading project. The end of my MBA program. Everything culminated in one day.

As I walked out the doors of the offices, I was keenly conscious of the fact that I hadn’t just finished a presentation; I had, indeed, finished an entire chapted of my life. Frankly, the whole thing felt anticlimactic and left me reflective and melancholy.

I will say this: Every MBA student should have such an experience. This project was truly a capstone of two years of MBA coursework. Our team had our stubborn moments and moments when we weren’t sure where the project was heading next, but overall, we laughed while working hard and produced something we are proud to leave behind for Rise to use.
