 FROM uwengdori - Current Student: Class diversity is more than just a B-school buzzword As a first year student, what I really believed to be awesome is its amazing class diversity, and when we say diversity, it’s not just about nationality, ethnicity, gender, and so on. It means more than that.Check out Mr. Moses’ admission blog post on what it really means.https://inside.rotman.utoronto.ca/admissions/

 FROM uwengdori - Current Student: Last final exam It felt like just a few days ago when I was attending the orientation week at Rotman, and before realizing, I am already having my very last final exam of the first term: Foundation Term.The foundation term is basically, well, foundation. It’s one month intensive study month that teaches you in the areas of data-driven decision making processes, ethics as a business person, and economics at a managerial level, to help students prepare for the upcoming serious courses. For that reason, course credit weights are indeed half those of Term 1 courses that start this October.My thoughts so far on the courses:-review materials and prepare for next ones as much as possible. It does get difficult with group projects and meetings, but I think at least keep studying and refreshing them little by little every day is better than cramming before the exam.Hopefully, I can do well on the exam tomorrow and share some more thoughts soon.

 FROM Reaching the Thirties: Second Year Recruiting at Fuqua Yep! I’m re-recruiting, as they call it in the MBA. I have a fantastic professor in Negotiations, one of the classes I’m taking this term, and she told us something that should be obvious to all of us. If you don’t negotiate any deal or don’t look for comparisons, how would you ever know whether you … Continue reading →

 FROM From Bench to Board (Fuqua): MBA Case Competition Learnings One popular event with MBA students are case competitions. It's a great way to practice analytic and presentation skills, which are key for consulting roles. In addition, teams are under tremendous time pressure because of the short time frame of the competitions. It's a great way to practice leadership, teamwork, and communication skills. In March 2014, I formed a team and participated in the Wake Forest Biotech Case Competition.My Advice to First Year MBAs Series will continue after this post. A reader and classmate had asked about case competitions so thought I'd post this now.Continue reading »

 FROM Sarah's MBA Journey: Back on the MBA wagon Know how I said, i’il do a part-time MBA? Well, I’m thinking of climbing back on the full-time MBA wagon. This time with a European focus.I’ve climbed on to the wagon far enough sign up for the forte event in London this evening.Only one downside, I might need to take either the GRE or the GMAT again. I thought the GRE might be easier as they are more dyslexic friendly. Justing reading what the GRE entails got me very anxious, specially when I saw the maths. So might need to reconsider that plan.I might need to consider living with my GMAT score and focusing on schools which run their own tests or have an open mind regarding GMAT scores.Anyone got any thoughts on the GRE v GMAT question?

 FROM uwengdori - Current Student: Dataclysm Author: Christian Rudder, Founder of OkCupidReading Start: Oct. 8, 2014So I borrowed my first book at Business Information Centre today, and I chose Dataclysm by Christina Rudder, who visited the Rotman a few days ago as a guest speaker.As I wanted to know more about data in practical applications, I was interested.Regarding that graph above:black: male responses of their female date appearance from rating 1 to 5red: female responses (haha)This is what the data says. But, what does it mean? does it mean females are harshier graders? find the answer at ‘Dataclysm.’
