Work-life balance and stress management are familiar coping skills for any Goizueta student. Along with good sleep, exercise is one of the best stress management techniques we have. With our busy schedules, however, squeezing in time to work out can be a challenge.
A major consideration of any working professional pursing a graduate degree is the support they get (or may not get) from their employer. I have friends and colleagues who have left a company in part due to weak support for their part-time MBA and others who have turned down very lucrative offers to change roles because it would mean they could no longer realistically pursue their MBA.
Team work and business school go hand-in-hand. Even when I knew very little about MBAs, I understood that the degree involved working in small teams on (often) intensive projects.
When I was in high school, I had a love/hate relationship with math. I passed algebra with flying colors and found nerdy joy in the challenge of solving for an “x” variable in an equation.
Resume and career building are often some of the most challenging areas for younger professionals. How do you get the right experience? How do you ensure you are headed on the right career path?
When I began the EvMBA program, I was not necessarily planning to make a career transition. I was fairly happy with my employer, and I thought that I had opportunities to grow within the company.
As I approach the halfway point of my time as a MEMBA student, I could not have not made it this far without the support of my boss, coworkers and organization. I am lucky enough to work for Emory, and it wasn’t long after starting my job at the university that I was bitten by the academic bug.
