As my two years at Fisher comes to an end, I can’t help but reminisce on the many experiences I’ve had while completing the Full-Time MBA program. When I first began the program, all the second-year students would say, “Enjoy your time. It goes by fast!” and I would just smile and think, “yeah, sure,”as I could only focus on my seemingly never ending to-do list of homework assignments. Now that I am one month away from graduation, I finally understand. It really does go fast!
So naturally, as I become sentimental and reflect on the last two years, I have to share some of my favorite moments– with photos!
#1 – Meeting my Core Team
So, this was slightly awkward at first. We all sat in silence for the first 10-15 minutes of meeting. But now, we are actually the best of friends! We look back on that day and laugh. You become very close with your core team throughout the program and I am thankful to be graduating from the program with friends who feel more like family.
#2 – KeyBank Case Competition
There are numerous opportunities for development while at Fisher, and one that I feel helped me the most was competing in case competitions. There are both internal and external case competitions and my favorite was the Key Bank Case Competition. Working closely with this team was a great experience that challenged me to explore outside of my comfort zone and provided me the opportunity to work with two students who have now become close friends of mine. Plus, we placed in the top 5!
#3 – UTSAV
Fisher has a diverse class of students and throughout the program, there are numerous opportunities to engage with individuals from different backgrounds and to celebrate their cultures. UTSAV does just that! UTSAV is an event held by the Fisher Indian Student Association (FISA) in April each year and involves both faculty and students. UTSAV shares Indian culture with the Fisher community through Bollywood music, Indian dance performances, delicious Indian food, and some fabulous entertainment. “UTSAV,” which means celebrating life, is a manifestation and celebration of the diversity within the Fisher community. I performed last year with my core team and had so much fun! I’m looking forward to attending this event again next week.
