My summer’s over in 4 days. I could not have wished for a better experience between my 1st and 2nd year at the GSB. The first 10 weeks I had spent at Google, working with an amazing Brand Solutions team, and the remaining 4 at a fitness start-up in Mexico City called Instafit. The latter […]

Spring Break is a great time to leave ‘the bubble’ and enjoy a week and half of free time. For me it was filled with travels around the US and unexpectedly (or maybe expectedly) answering a question: ‘so what do you actually study at Stanford?’. Over the last 10 days I’ve heard it about half […]

THAT time of an MBA1’s life is here. It’s been shyly lurking for the last 2 months and finally came for good. SUMMER RECRUITING. It feels kind of odd…almost as if I was beamed back to 2006 (yes, 8 years ago) and my undergrad summer internship recruiting. First and so far the last one in […]

A year ago around this time I was sitting in my parents’ living room and polishing my GSB application. I hit the ‘submit’ button just before Christmas. Little had I known how much change 2013 was holding for me. Now, a year later, I’m back in the same chair trying to get my head around […]

First things first – i apologize for being silent the past couple of weeks. i guess the GSB workload got hold of me…a bit. anyways, today about choices. After 2 months here my hypothesis is that the core purpose of an MBA is to teach the incoming students how to be good or even great […]

…true story:) it’s been quite an interesting week. I think one that some of the MBA1s (me for sure) needed. The week was split between an OB (Org. Behavior) class called Managing Groups & Teams and a ‘gazillion’ meetings ranging from gsb culture through intl study trips to financial aid. Frankly speaking I enjoyed that idea […]

…first week of the next 2 years of my life has passed. AND? I’m still trying to figure out what just happened. I guess it is mainly because during the first 7 days spent here i was: a/ amazed by the size and sheer beauty of campus, b/ handling 300 small things from getting a new […]

I’m back. THE YACHT WEEK is over. It was my first encounter with the GSB community and it’s been quite an exciting one. First of all – a group of amazing individuals, with a variety of exciting backgrounds. Second of all, I was quite amazed about how well we all got along – and I […]
