A Day in the Life of a Fisher MBA Student

Or a week in the life of an MBA student

First term ended a week ago, I am thankful for the wonderful professors at Fisher. It is amazing how much you can grow in 7 weeks. It took me a while to get used to being a full-time student. (5 hours of sleep?! More coffee, please…) Here is a quick overview of a typical week so far:

Monday

Wake up at 4 am in Cincinnati, arrive in Columbus at 6 am

8:30-11:45 am Data Analysis and Managerial Economics

Lunch, errands, reading assignments, gym, dinner, homework

Tuesday

8:30-11:45 am Marketing Management and Accounting

Lunch and core team meeting

1:15-2:45 pm Workshop Core

More reading assignments and homework

Wednesday

Same classes as Monday

ProjectOne team meeting

Seminar on MBA Career Path

Did I mention endless homework and readings?

Thursday

Same classes as Tuesday, usually no Workshop Core

Student club meeting

Grocery shopping, gym, yes, more readings to do

Friday

Same classes as Monday

ProjectOne meeting

Drive home (Cincinnati)

It’s our Date Night! Mike and I go out for dinner and dancing

Saturday & Sunday

Catch up with my dad and sister

Run errands, do laundry, go grocery shopping, cook… household chores

Check email, start reading & homework assignments for next week

Watch Criminal Minds, Burn Notice, Castle, NCIS

Pack up for the week in Columbus

 

I talk to my husband 2-3 times a day. We talk about school, work, life, and silly little things. Because we see each other only on the weekends & holidays, it is important to have open and honest communications. One of these days, I will learn to Skype!
