Last week was a whirlwind at school - with a ton of fantastic opportunities to have small-group chats with inspirational leaders. Don't believe me?
This week I had the opportunity to participate in the first big case competition of the year on campus, which was sponsored by Proctor & Gamble (a consumer brand goods company based in Cincinnati, OH). The case was marketing based, using a real P&G brand, and interacting with members of the brand management team that actually works on the product's marketing strategy.
A good team makes working on projects and assignments easier. A great team helps you keep calm when you have seven interviews in one week, two homework assignments due and a midterm within days. Luckily, I fall into the second category! I wanted to take a quick second and thank my incredible team members: Pat, Davin, Arjun and Tracy for everything this past month. Not only did February bring snow and cold (also some 60 degree days - thanks Ohio), but lots of interviews, projects and and team assignments.
I'm an outlier. The average age of the 2012-13 class of SMF students is around 23 years; I'm 33. The average work experience of the group is about 1.5 years; I've been out in "the real world" for 10 years. So maybe it's just that I don't know any other way to approach this SMF thing than this: I plan to treat it like it's my job.
Sarah recently asked about student organizations in the MAcc program, and about any corresponding leadership opportunities. I did some research, so I'll be sharing what I found - as well as an interview with Fiona Pan, President of the MAcc Council.
