MBA Renders First Year Experience in a Word

by Vault Education Editors | May 03, 2011

A London Business School student characterizes her first year experience at a top b-school with one word: Resilience.

Resilience to death by corporate presentation and to disappointments in the summer internship placement process; the resilience to navigate the vast quantities of information thrown at me and to build a life away from friends and family. And, yes, the resilience to survive dawn classes with a hangover. It has been a tremendous learning and character building experience, but yet somewhat like a roller coaster—you get on with trepidation, yell and scream and squeeze your eyes shut, but when it is over all you want nothing more than to get back in line and do it all over again.
