FROM Financial Times MBA Blog: London, Competitions, Electives and the Wharton PE Challenge
This year has gotten off to a frantic start, as is always the case for all final-year MBA students. January brings the intersection of three professional buckets: the interviewing rush, the innumerable challenges we wittingly and unwittingly commit to and the ramp up of coursework.
My experience and reaction to all these forces thus far has been to go in the direction of my passion, which arguably could lead to less than optimal results, but hey there is no Nash Equilibrium for this.

The team was made up of two executive MBA students, two masters students and one PhD student (see photo), selected on individual merit by the programme teams.

FROM Sarah's MBA Journey: Cambridge MBA update
Well, in short I didn’t get an interview for the Cambridge MBA programme. My first thought, well that means I can buy a house instead. 

I always thought applying for Cambridge would be challenging; mainly because it’s Cambridge. 

I think there were two main reasons for my ding:

My qualifications: I have a good set of grade, but not stellar and if you want Soneone with straight A’s or a perfect GPA that’s not me.

Anytical ability: I got a phone call querying my ability to do maths based on my poor quant score in the GMAT, never a good sign. If my work and masters degree couldn’t reassure them, I’m not sure what would.

Future

For just now I’m going to concentrate on getting a new job, buying a house and then look again at part-time MBAs. I more want a place of my own than a fill time MBA.

Winter is perhaps one of the most brutal or discouraging season for many including myself. Distance from the school makes commuting more difficult and makes me feel lazier with commute, but things have been alright.

There are strikes going on and final exams are coming.

I do have to talk about the beer game which I had a chance to play recently. Created by a group of professors from MIT, the game is meant to demonstrate importance of communication, reaction to variability in inventory and decisions are important in bringing costs down. It was pretty interesting how what started simple starts to become more complicated as backorder kicks in.
