STARTING YOUR MBA
Congratulations! After your hard work researching schools, taking the GMAT, and sending in your essays and application, your hard work paid off.
Take some time before classes start to make your move as smooth as possible. All students will be in the same position as you – looking for apartments, deciding what the best means of transportation will be for them; start building connections with people from your class!
You’ll soon be surrounded be a new group of people, and exposed to life changing situations; but time flies! Make sure to make the most of it.
DON’T FORGET TO BREATHE
Roxanne Leslie, Class of 2020, has some tips about how to be mindful during your MBA
The MBA can feel overwhelming at time – with cases, interview prep, professional and social events, but things like taking a break and practicing a simple breathing exercise can put you back in a positive mindset.
Don’t think the MBA is all stress! It’s a lot of fun, you will have the opportunity to meet fantastic and like-minded people, travel to new places, learn new skills and be exposed to things you had never considered.
