Just like last year, I have a feeling the fall quarter is going to be the busiest time of the year. (It doesn’t help that it is also football season… and for the first time in 15 years, baseball postseason for my Cincinnati Reds.)
I’m not exactly sure why, but I decided to take all the time intensive classes that I need to graduate this quarter. That includes Dean Wruck’s finance class and Jay Barney’s advanced strategy class. Along with these classes, I am also the TA for BA 499: Applied Business Skills and the Environment of Business. I taught my first class on Wednesday and I think it went pretty well. Next quarter should be much easier and less time intensive since I’ll already have my PowerPoint slides created and I’ll know the routine.
In the little time I have remaining, my goal is to get back in shape so I can row with some former teammates at the Henley Royal Regatta in England next July. Hopefully I will become more efficient with my time so I can find a way to get everything done… while still getting some sleep.
I’m back… sorry for the long absence.
A lot has been going on recently and unfortunately blogging had to take a backseat while I prepared for final presentations, exams and the start of my internship. The good news is that I successfully made it through my first year of the MBA program and have an awesome internship lined up for the summer.
Internship – I have made it through my first week at Cardinal Health. I’m a Finance intern for the Nuclear Pharmacy Services division. I find the work really interesting and have already learned an unbelievable amount. I’ll continue updating the blog with work related updates.
Next summer plans – I recently committed to join some of my Yale rowing friends in a competition next summer (The Henley Royal Regatta) in Henley-on-Thames, England. This will be my fourth time rowing in the regatta, so hopefully we can finally win it. The regatta is similar to March Madness – basically it is a single elimination bracket and teams row a 2112 meter course in a one-on-one competition. If you win every race it will be five consecutive days of exhaustive races.
I’m going to remain quite busy with FGSA this summer. We are working with Dean Wruck to set-up several “current event debates” between faculty members during the lunch hour. If you have any good ideas for topics, please let me know.
That’s all for now. I’ll start updating the blog more often.
