First month

Posted by Luiz on 24 September 2009

Today marks the end of the first month of the new MBA class. It has been such an intense and fun month that I thought it would be appropriate to list the top ten moments so far (in increasing order):

10 – Routemaster bus (pic) and its “Welcome MBA2011” tour in London. LBS not only does it well but also does it with style!

9 – International citizen game, in which each country/region presented its culture. The Italians won by saying that “mama” controls them by their weight.

8 – Honda case class discussion. Particularly interesting was the role play acted by a former US Soldier and an Italian classmate.

7 – When I first met my study group. There was one minute of silence while we tried to first guess whether we would get along well.

6 – Playing football at Regent’s Park during lunch break.

5 – Statistics group case competition.

4 – Orientation at the Brewery (pic) and meeting as many people as I could in our first two days of MBA at a historical site in London.

3 – The long answers you are likely to get when you ask a classmate: Where are you from?

2 – Away day (pic). We went to a rural location to do outdoor leadership activities that included blindfolding a classmate and putting him on a wire to rescue a “magic potion”.

1 – Friendliness and cooperativeness of students. This ranges from stream trip to Edinburgh, stream dinner and housewarmings to volunteering time to help classmates on CVs and mock interviews.

And the top 5 not so nice:

1 – Price of housing in London and price of beer at Windsor.

2 – The fact that broadband providers take from 3 to 6 weeks to install internet at flats.
3 – Dooms day comments by career services regarding the current job market.

4 – British humour and British liver: you can’t compete with either.

5  - Falling asleep on the night bus, passing my stop, and finding out that I was one hour away from home.
