Intopia – The Class that Makes You CEO

Yesterday evening was my first Intopia class…I don’t think my team and I will be getting much sleep on Tuesdays.

A quick recap of the glorious Intopia: students split into teams of four and own a computer/PC business. With a home office and the ability to enter the markets in the USA, Brazil and Europe – teams will act as internal business owners. We will chose (and modify) a strategy, negotiate, look into market research and R&D, review financials, convert currencies and 1,000 other things.

We will learn how to work with team-members – both defending positions and compromising.

I am very excited, yet very apprehensive, for this class.

However, opportunities such as this is the core reason I entered into Fisher’s MBA program. I want to push myself out side my comfort zone and really understand a business. This class is going to force me to take a deep dive into financial reports (see how I used an awesome BSchool word right there?!), something that isn’t my strength.

This simulation class is also permitting me to work with different classmates. I am excited to get to know them a little bit better, and the hours and hours I will be spending at Gerlach Hall on Tuesday evenings will be the perfect opportunity.

Thanks for reading! Talk soon,

    It is the most difficult and rewarding class you will take in the MBA program. Enjoy it.

    Bryon – so far, only one “actual” meeting! My team is discussing a strategy tomorrow, I know it’s going to be great…but I am a little overwhelmed! Thanks for your comment.
