Bloomberg Businessweek asked its social media fans and followers to reflect on their own MBA experiences and to share snippets of advice with new the students and applicants
Thousands of new MBA students are about to start class, and thousands more are beginning the B-school application process. With that in mind, Bloomberg Businessweek asked its social media fans and followers to reflect on their own MBA experiences and to share snippets of advice with new the students and applicants.
We asked "What advice do you wish you'd been given when you were first starting your #MBA program?" on both @BWBschools and @BW Twitter feeds and on our Facebook page. Here are some of the best answers:
@zarrasstelios: 1)start networking immediately, 2) tailor your story
@zarrasstelios: have good answers when the ask you why you came back to bschool, what have you done professionally so far, etc
@cutyourlosses: Before starting Wharton, I wish I focused more on my passion. Following your passion and applying it to your community = happiness
@MBAmoms: Don't choose an elective based on professor's rep alone. If you're not truly interested in the subject you WILL regret it!
@Cooleysean: network with group of different people with different skills and start something
@Bryanytl: Advice for starting out: Smile, be nice, be open - you never know who will be your next business partner, mentor, or best friend!
@Bmrothenberg: Don't do what others think you should do, or what everyone else is doing. Decide what you want and hustle to get it...
