When I first wanted to write a blog about networking, I asked myself if I was actually qualified to do this. Then I looked back at the last five-plus years of my life: founding a successful networking association from scratch, building work and social relationships in a new country, and starting my Executive MBA. I began to think that maybe I could share with others what I have learned.
Two years ago, when I was considering where to pursue my MBA, one of my top priorities was to attend a school with a strong alumni network.
The Goizueta Evening MBA Leadership Retreat at Château Élan will always stand out when I think back on my Emory EvMBA experience.
“Growing up, what did you always need and never get?” “What did you particularly value from your childhood that you would like to give to others?” “What gets you mad in the world?” As I jotted down answers to these questions, I had to take a moment to look around the room and remind myself where I was.
If you told me prior to enrollment at the Goizueta Business School, that I’d graduate with approximately 50 new, quality friendships, I would not have taken you seriously.
