Are we applying to all the same schools? I still haven't heard from any of them. Pretty tense at this moment.

Meet Darden’s EMBA and GEMBA: Ryan Slevin, GEMBA ’18  [#permalink]

New post 04 Oct 2016, 14:00
FROM Darden Admissions Blog: Meet Darden’s EMBA and GEMBA: Ryan Slevin, GEMBA ’18
Much like our residential students, the students enrolled in the Executive Formats of the Darden MBA come from a wide variety of backgrounds, careers, goals, and interests. We have asked several of our EMBA and GEMBA students to answer a few questions about their MBA experiences, which we will post over the coming weeks. We hope you enjoy getting to know them, and if you have any additional questions about our Executive Formats, we encourage you to schedule a conversation with a member of our Admissions Committee.

http://blogs.darden.virginia.edu/admiss ... 00x290.jpg
GEMBA Student Ryan Slevin

Name: Ryan Slevin

City: Richmond, Virginia

Employer: Capital One Financial

Years of Experience: 16

Format/Section: GEMBA CHO

  • What is your current job? 
I am in Card Operations at Capital One. I partner with analysts and executives to craft our organizational strategy. I also lead a team of program managers who then deliver pieces of that strategy across the organization.

[*]What attracted you to the executive formats of the Darden MBA?[/list]
The executive format allows me to maintain momentum in my career today while I explore where I want to go professionally in the future.  The executive format also creates a learning community of seasoned professionals, which deepens the insights during classes and residencies.

My colleagues are able to pepper the classroom dialogue with practical examples from their diverse career experiences.  For example, when discussing a case of an executive introducing a business in India, many of us were very quick to judge the executive’s results as unimpressive and too slow.

The international students shared fantastic perspective and encouraged us to consider cultural factors, language barriers, and the time required to adjust to doing business in a new country and governance structure.  The perspective of these colleagues changed the timbre of the conversation and we wound up giving the executive a far more empathetic evaluation.

[*]What’s your favorite thing about your classmates so far? [/list]
My classmates are intimidatingly accomplished.  On my first day at Darden I met government officials, military leaders, banking executives, corporate and non-profit leaders.  Despite the widely diverse group, it took less than a day to establish relationships.  By the end of our first residency, I knew I had not only made rich networking contacts but had also planted the seedlings of several long term friendships.  No one is an expert in every subject, yet each person has enormous value to add.  The learning teams are able to capitalize on each individual’s experience and you quickly learn to depend heavily on the expertise that each of your team members bring to the table.  This trust creates strong bonds and connections that form very quickly.

[*]What are you most excited about accomplishing/doing during the program?  [/list]
I am most excited about rewriting my professional story.  For so long, I convinced myself that I was one kind of leader: a strong strategist with great people and leadership skills.  My time at Darden is convincing me that I am a whole lot more than just those things. I am learning to speak accounting and becoming comfortable with finance.  This discovery comes through a willingness be put on the spot; I’ve been called on in Accounting when I had no idea how to attack a problem.  The professors, however, encourage us to reason problems out and rely on our experiences and intuition.  By being put in the spotlight and then led down a logical path, I’m learning that I have a gut instinct for quantitative problems that I never knew existed!

Demonstrating proficiency in these areas is changing the way I view myself as a leader and opening up a new realm of opportunities to consider.

[*]What advice do you have for prospective students?[/list]
This program requires real commitment; to get the full experience you need to create the time and space for learning team meetings, classes, readings, and assignments.  Be sure you have full, genuine support at work and at home before you enroll.

For me that support needed to come from three places: my work, my family, and my friends.  At work, I set expectations clearly about time away and travel in order to protect my experience during on grounds and residencies.  My husband and daughters had to understand that I was adding 20 hours of work to my weekly schedule, which necessitated a shift in household responsibilities. My husband and I check in every week on how things are going at home; if I’m feeling disconnected or he’s overwhelmed (or both), we make small adjustments for the coming week to rebalance the scales. And finally, my closest friends know that I need cheerleaders.  They understand when I’m not available for a social event and I also receive regular texts and messages of encouragement from them to keep me going.

Darden’s Executive MBA is a huge investment in yourself and your future – and you deserve the time and space to make the most of the experience.

Last year, the R1 deadline was October 10th and the first interview invitations were received on October 26th. Assuming a similar timeline, the first interview invites will go out on or around October 24th and continue up until the first week of December.

Assuming 16 days from application due date to interview invites, it could be even sooner (the 20th).

Either way, not long until the first batch of invites go out! Has anyone heard anything about Jefferson Fellowship invites?
