The quest for wisdom, from France to China, of an HEC MBA & Tsinghua MBA dual degree student (class of 2011)
Archive for the ‘1. Pre-MBA’ Category
A week has passed, and the tension starts to build up before classes start. More students arrive in Paris from other countries.
As a result, I could see new faces during another HEC get together when we went for a picnic on the Pont des Arts last Friday (Aug 28th). In total, I could meet people from UK, the US, Japan, Hong Kong, Brazil, Columbia, and of course France.
On my side, I’ve started figure out what I could bring into my room and I think I won’t be able to do without renting a utility car for moving in.
To be continued…
I haven’t written much since I came back to France (beside a page about interviews).
Indeed, as the day when school starts (September 7th) beckons, more students are gathering in Paris. So last Friday (Aug 21st) we had a nice event where we had drinks and a few of us continued for dinner in the Montorgueil area.
All good stuff :)
Via that, some of the French parisian crowd organised an ice breaking event by the Eiffel Tower yesterday. Unfortunately, the weather wasn’t so happy about it and the evening was fresh with a few drizzles. The mood however was great and enjoyable for the 7 of us who attended. We exchanged on our admission process, prior experience, expectations, financing, and on many other topics.
Now I feel like my MBA is finally getting into motion :)
