So, What Does a Guy Have to Do to Get a Blog Around Here?

So, I guess this is hello! And hellos require introductions, so let’s get to that.

Zach Huselid

My name is Zach Huselid, and I’ll probably be the first to admit that I’m the black sheep of this MBA family. I’m 23 (which, by my observation, makes me the second-youngest person in my cohort), and before coming out here to Maryland I was finishing up a BA in Pre- and Early Modern Literature at the University of California at Santa Cruz. My work background is in non-profit radio broadcasting and audio production. Lately, social media has also been the name of one of my games.

In other words, you could say I’m not your typical MBA candidate. But on the other hand, that’s the beauty of a program like the Smith School. We want our cohorts to have a well-rounded and diverse group of students from all backgrounds and comprising a wide variety of skill sets.

This blog will, for the most part, be a place for me to report on and muse about life as an MBA student at one of the best programs in the country. I’ll talk about student life, professional events, and the trials and tribulations of trying to adapt to a culture that – although friendly and welcoming – is utterly foreign to me.

Get me a pith helmet and call me Doctor Livingstone, I suppose.
