Everyone told me that the first term at business school is the hardest and I have only come to appreciate this in that past couple weeks. The transition into Term B has been a welcome one–from Micro Econ and Accounting to Marketing and Strategy. Our classes have gone from lecture style, formula heavy content to being much more debate driven. The ‘case based’ leaning plays to a different set of strengths and it is nice to reciprocate all the help my cohort members gave me in the quant heavy first term.
In one of our first marketing classes, we discussed the different advertising strategies between Viagra and Cialis. And yes, there were plenty of humorous comments that class. Having a chance to read through Trader Joe’s business strategy and understand it was amazing. The work is tough but the friendships and skills I’ve developed her are priceless.
