Having taken finals for my initial round of courses (that’s right, we work on a half-semester schedule around here), I have now officially completed 1/8 of my MBA degree. I can’t believe it’s gone by so fast. The good news, though, is that my schedule should ease up enough to allow me to provide some reasonably regular updates to this blog. Next week I’m attending a workshop with Commongood Careers, a lecture at the Law School entitled “The Myth of the Rational Voter,” and a seminar on organizational effectiveness. Hope to have reports on all of these by the end of the weekend.
Next week, we start the official “core” of Yale’s vaunted new curriculum. I’ll be eager to see if it lives up to the hype. I’m taking courses with titles like “Competitor,” “Customer,” “Investor,” and…wait for it…”Sourcing and Managing Funds.” I guess they felt they had to throw at least one normal-sounding class in there—either that or “Accountant” just didn’t sound sexy enough.
