Off to Israel

Last year, I was visiting Stanford, and one of the students mentioned about study trips. They were planning trips to a variety of places including one to Israel. I was really excited about this part and even mentioned this is my essay. This year Haas students are organizing study trips (in addition to things like the International Business Development and International Business Seminar that are offered as regular courses). I applied for the Study trip to Israel and I got the notification that I would be going. I am really excited about this. First, this will happen during the Christmas break so I will not have to take too many additional days off for this trip. Second, I have been curious about Israel in general and the fact that we will be meeting with a variety of leaders both in politics and business makes it an exciting choice. More on this in an upcoming post.

This was the high part so far, but between midterms and impending finals, I have been desperately trying to juggle work and school. Social life is more or less gone, but I am enjoying what I am learning - so I keep telling myself, this is all for the greater good. Next week, I plan to attend this workshop on case interviews. Although I am not looking for a job immediately, but I think it will be a useful workshop for later.

Time to go back to work...

  • Your posting is great to read. I plan on applying to Haas EWMBA in 2007. Is it possible to go to school, work and have a family? How is the workload?

  • Most of my classmates have family including children so I think that this is definitely possible. As far as the workload goes, there are a good number of homeworks and projects and regular study is probably required. Plus there are other social activities - like company presentations, happy hours etc. I am being selective about these events because I dont have the time to do it all
