Juggling and an Abridged Autobiography

My name is Patrick, and I am thinking about  joining a circus.  Why? Well, I just started my part-time online MBA at Tepper, which means  constantly juggling responsibilities!

Didn’t Expect to Start My MBA So Soon

Hi! I’m Dev Chandra, and I’m in the Part-Time Flex MBA program, Class of 2023! I am a Naval Officer, entrepreneur, and currently live in Arlington, VA.

My name is Luke Miller, and I am a first year (Class 2023) student in the Part-Time Online Hybrid MBA program at Tepper. As I mentioned earlier, I am a software development engineer for Amazon, currently working on the Amazon FSx service in the Amazon Web Services (AWS) organization.

Hello, World

Hello, world. My name is Sofia Eliseeva. I’m a first-year part-time MBA student at the Tepper School of Business. I was born in a tiny-yet-older-than-the-US city in Russia called Irkutsk.

Of course that’s not completely true, I’ll always find time to go hiking and to scope out the newest gelato store in San Diego where I currently live, but it’s true that there are less free hours in the day. Which is why, it’s daunting for many part-time students to think about setting aside any time or mental capacity for recruiting, when they are already balancing work and school (and keeping alive children or pets).

Peek-a-boo! New Blogger Saying Hello!

The past year has been an amazing ride, with Tepper, and with the happy fall and spring breaks when I explored the sunrises, the sunsets, the mountains and the rivers – in this new country. Some things change, everything else remains! <3

On the eve of our first access weekend, I gathered my newly purchased school supplies, charged my laptop, looked in the mirror and thought to myself, “What on earth am I doing?”
