FROM Yudanashi: Sport at the Oxford MBA
http://blog.davidbbaker.com/wp-content/uploads/2015/11/12249800_10153820891439090_8007573611012789132_n.jpgWhen you think about an MBA program, usually the last thing you think of is professional collegiate sport. (Yes American’s I’m going to use the British Sport instead of the American Sports … Yes I do realize it makes me sound like Mitt Romney …. No, I don’t care … Cheerio!)

I don’t know how it is at US programs, but at Oxford, Sport is everywhere. Perhaps its because we are embedded within the wider university, but a large chunk of my classmates are representing Oxford as they fight against other schools.

In the US there is the NCAA, and in the UK its BUCS – British University & Colleges Sport. In our class of 340 students, easily 25% of the them are involved in a university sport. A lot of them row in teams of 8 for their college or for the wider university. If you remember the movie The Social Network really well you might recall that the Winklevoss twins ended up at a rowing regatta. They were rowing for Oxford and in fact were Oxford MBA students at the time.

We have 2 olympic swimmers, the head of the boathouse, half of the university hockey team, a university archer, a crew of table tennis players, and much much more. Myself? I fence Foil & Sabre for the University and this weekend had a “Quint” – a small tournament with 5 schools. It lets us pack most of our matches for a term into a single weekend instead of being on the road each week.

Image
I fenced against Cambridge (Beat them!), Warwick (Their fencers were just as hot as their infamous rowing team), and Nottingham (like the Sheriff). I’ll have at least two more of these next term before the big varsity rivalry match against Cambridge again on 12 March. Getting back into Fencing after so many years off has been exhaustingly exhilarating. I hadn’t thought about getting back into collegiate sport for my MBA, and especially not in a 12-month compressed intensive program. However it has been an energizing experience.

Not only am I more active to help fight off those MBA 15-pounds, I have another network of friends, another tie to the wider university, and more generally, more energy (if less time). As we have been learning about managing for energy not time this is an important experiential learning exercise that hopefully I’ll find a way to continue after I leave Oxford.

If you are thinking about coming to the Oxford MBA and used to play a sport in college, reach out because I’m certain we have an MBA involved on some level you could talk to.

FROM Yudanashi: Balance & Peace During the Oxford MBA
Any MBA is an intense program, you uproot your life & routines at your job & hometown and purposefully put yourself into uncomfortable environments with people who all have a different perspective. It is painful the way a deep-tissue massage is painful. It hurts so good.

Image
However, just like any massage you need to take a break from the pressure. Weekends aren’t helpful unless you take-off and disconnect from the MBA program entirely and sometimes you need one of those weekends. At Oxford that might mean taking a trip to Bath to use their Roman Spas after your exams (Next week’s adventure!) or it might mean taking a cheap RyanAir flight to wherever is cheapest for a few days.

This term I have neglected this advice and it built up. I was getting homesick and stressed out and realized that I needed a mini-break. In looking at the options I found a cheap flight home to DC and realized that this weekend was my friend’s annual over-the-top christmas party and my old chorus’ holiday show. So I did what any crazy person would do, bought the ticket for 60 hours back in DC two nights before my flight.

I am so grateful that I did, even if it took away some time from my favorite class and time to study for my exam on Tuesday. I am already feeling more energized and invigorated for the week to come. You see I am the type of person to operate at 150% otherwise I’m start to get unhappy. I take on a lot of things that I make certain I get done but leave no time for anything else. A coach once told me that that’s how I’ll end up dying 50% early … I’ll work my heart to death.

This weekend was a practical & valuable lesson that I need to take care of myself if I as a leader am going to take care of others. It is up to me to discover the balance, slow down and in doing slow be better at the 150% of things I choose to do.

Another amazing part of this trip was that it served as a confirmation of what my old DC friends told me when I left and what I haven’t acknowledged as truth until now. When I needed a break and was feeling homesick I went to DC. I didn’t go to Utah where my Mom & Brothers are. I didn’t go to Dallas where my sister and one of my favorite nephews live. I didn’t go to some exotic location because I am an unrooted traveller on this planet. No, I went to DC to feel at home.

It might not be the first job after my MBA (it certainly might) but I now know that DC is home. That I have roots in DC. That when I am in DC I feel a little more at peace. Something about the insanity of that city resonates with my soul and I know that I’ll end up back in DC soon.

I have to catch my flight and actually do some studying for my exam on Tuesday so I’ll sign off and board my flight back to the UK where tomorrow I’ll be more rejuvenated and more centered at the Oxford MBA.

FROM uwengdori - Current Student: Interested in Rotman?
Image

 

So finally half of 2nd year MBA is done, and I just said hi to Rotman forum on gmatclub.com, but I was like I might as well say the same stuff here as well.

Greetings, everyone. This is Josh, class of 2016 and currently in my 2nd year Rotman MBA student. I just finished my Fall term and just wanted to say hi. gmatclub helped me tremendously with my gmat and understanding more about MBAs in overall.

Congratulations to everyone who got in, and congratulations to those who are considering MBA as well even if it might not be Rotman.

In terms of school experiences, there are abundant resources to get you familiarized with Rotman.

1. Student blogs

Yes, we have current student blogs who write their school experiences and I have one too, which was featured on gmatclub as well.

http://www.rotman.utoronto.ca/Degrees/MastersPrograms/MBAPrograms/FullTimeMBA/StudentLife/StudentBlogs.aspx

2. Ambassadors

Many current MBA students have volunteered their time to help incoming students with advice about Rotman and MBA.

http://www-2.rotman.utoronto.ca/sitecore-facultybio/wizards.aspx

You can sort by field of interest and send them an email for questions.

I am considering of doing a podcast on this lol.

If you have any questions, I’m also more than happy to answer them by email or through my blog.

Cheers,

Josh

FROM Yudanashi: Embracing my new culture
A few weeks ago I wrote about adapting to the English culture. In the past two weeks I’ve realized important lessons that are critical to success in the UK and likely useful back in the states as well. At their core, these lessons are to do with politeness and understanding the levels of politeness required to accomplish key tasks.

The first lesson took me a while to realize given my background in the Tech industry but should have been self-evident from my time in politics. If you want something done, don’t send an email talk to the person as directly as possible. If you can only give them a call then call them. If you can add video-chat like we had at the click of a button at Google, then do it. However if you really want to get something done, politely invade someone’s personal sense of space and time.

They cannot get upset with you as helping you is part of their job, but they also cannot ignore you because you are right there ready to have a polite, calm conversation with them. I re-iterate, have a polite conversation. You don’t deserve a solution, you are doing this in person to help speed up the process, eliminating back-and-forth that email creates. You being there in person is a gift to whomever you need something from as then they can quickly get it finished. Being there in person means they can’t ignore you but it also means they can complete the task and move on. In the past few weeks I’ve applied this dozens of times and in the UK especially it is critical. Relying on email slows things down, saying “Hiya, how’s your day going?” in person gets shit done.

The second lesson is to couch everything negative (and I mean EVERYTHING) in a polite shit-sandwich. Personally I prefer just the criticism straight-up so I know where to get better. Maybe its the East Coast blood in my veins (Mom & Granny were born in NYC) but this is the more effective way to couch things. A fantastic Brit articulate this to me in the clearest way possible with the following example. She told me, to deliver a critique simply say the following “The meal you cooked me was brilliant! … The-sex-was-shitI LOVE your kitchen.” Complete with saying the middle section fast and moving onto the 2nd compliment almost without taking a breath.

Since that moment I’ve begun to couch any criticism I have in a shit-sandwich only to see it eaten quite handily. Apparently this means I am becoming more british but I think that these lessons apply back in the states as well. Its an important lesson to learn and the Brits have definitely helped me internalize it!

FROM gmat4IMD: 10 Apps to have before you start your MBA journey
I’m about to start my journey at IMD from January 2016. Before
the journey starts, I wanted to finalize the list of apps that a business
school graduate must have on the first day of the business school. These 10
apps will definitely make your business school life easier. If you do think of
other apps that need to go on with this list, please share.

Image
Swipes:
A clean, fast and intuitive task hub to keep tabs on all
your upcoming tasks and meetings.
The app is free for now. The app is available across various
platforms from iOS and Android to web.
Alternatives: Wunderlist, Todoist and Any.Do

Image
 Producteev:
Though Wunderlist is a good option to share lists and for
assigning tasks, we need to pay for the unlimited access to Files, assigning
and subtasks. This is where producteev fits in. For a business school graduate
to work in teams and ensure all the members of the group are on the same page,
producteev could be one of the best apps. The free version has unlimited access
to most of the tasks we are going to perform at business school.
Apps for iPhone, Android, iPad, Mac & Web are available.

Image
Evernote
Though it hardly needs an introduction, it is a must have
for anyone. It can just nullify the use of various other apps for lists, group
tasks and even reminders. It can record audio. Though it could do absolutely
everything, if you are not game for the subscription service, you will be in
for a paltry 60 MB monthly upload limit. The Evernote plus with its 1 GB
monthly upload limit and the Evernote premium with its 10 GB upload limit could
be game changers with all the additional features.
If you do not want to cough up for the Evernote, then you
could use the above mentioned apps individually.
Alternatives: Super Notes (iOS), Asus SuperNote (Android)

Good Reader
This is an amazing tool for reading PDFs, highlight, markup
and even do free hand drawings. Fill up and sign PDF documents. It handles huge
PDF documents with great ease. It comes with a small price.
Alternatives: Xodo PDF reader and Editor (iOS and Android)

Image
Roambi Analytics
Take data from excel, google spreadsheets and similar
environments and  create stunning visuals easily. You can even access the
visualizations offline.
The power of desktop analytics tools squeezed into an app so
simple, fun and easy to use. All this for free.

Image
Bloomberg Business
The most important financial and business news, with the
added advantage of market data and portfolio tracking from one of the most
trusted sources available out there. I really like the idea of having all
information under one roof and without the hassle of expensive subscriptions.
Alternatives: WSJ, CNBC Business News and Finance and Market

One Drive
Though there are many worthy competitors in the cloud
storage business, I chose One Drive as the best option as you get a 1 TB
storage option with Office 365 which is a must buy especially if you combine
with 4 of your cohorts to buy the home plan for 99$ or even cheaper (In effect, you end up paying 20$ for the whole Office Suite and 1 TB of cloud storage). Every one
gets 1 TB storage capacity which is more than enough for the entire year.  The app is fast and easy to use.
The
cheapest version if you go without an Office 365 would be a 50 GB limit for 2
dollars a month. The free storage though is only 5 GB from January 2016.
The second favorite or if you are not into OneDrive would be
Dropbox. Drop box is useful especially if use a lot of different devices. The free storage limit though is just 2 GB.
Alternatives: Google Drive (Free storage - 15 GB), Mega (Best free & encrypted
storage – 50 GB) & Copy (Free storage - 15 GB)

BA Financial Calculator Pro
Just in case you forget your financial calculator for the
class. An exact replica of the BA 2 plus Texas instruments calculator. Might be
a real value addition to your app collection.

Image
Mind Node
One of the best mind mapping apps out there with an
intuitive and clear interface to help users brainstorm and be more creative
with little effort.
It comes for a nominal one-time fee rather than some of the
other more expensive options with subscription services.

Image
Pocket Schedule
Last but not the least, the Pocket schedule lets you keep a
track of your courses, classes and assignments. This app will show the classes/lectures
you have for the week in the week-view. You remember the feeling of forgetting the important
lectures for the day during your school/college days. Now, you don’t have to
anymore with the help of Pocket Schedule.
