Where is Karen Carpenter when I need her? Classes, career fairs, football games, sleepless nights, and everything else that accompanies business school have only just begun. In true MBA fashion, I am embracing it and trying to go with the flow. Here is what a future MBA should look forward to at Ohio State during their first few weeks of the program.
- Classes - Classes are the main part of an MBA program and they start off with a sprint. There is no warm-up jogging when you get into class. Students need to be lock loaded and prepared to be called on when they sit in their seat. Professors are great and the material is all relevant for future business leaders throughout the world. I feel like I have already learned a lot of tactics and principles that I can take with me into the corporate world.
- Career Fairs – There is a reason that Fisher ranks as one of the top five schools in students graduating with a job offer. The career management office does a fantastic job from day at getting you involved in your career search from day one. I have already met with my career coach twice and am looking forward to having my first internship interview this week. These guys are good, but they expect students to do their part in their career search.
- Football Games - Do I really need to go into detail? The Ohio State football experience is second to none. I have traveled around the country and watched teams such as Texas, USC, Notre Dame, etc, and none can compare with the environment here in Columbus. Ohio State football runs this town. If you show up to Ohio State not a Buckeye, you can guarantee that you will be by the time you graduate.
- Sleepless Nights – Yep, these seem to come as a package deal with the MBA degree. Gotta love it!
