A Short Poem: What’s the Goal?

“To-Do Lists” A to-do list here, a grocery list there, Focused on nutrition and skin care. Enjoying classes on Monday and Wednesday, Frankly looking forward to each Friday. From eating out almost daily to becoming Chef Nancy, Wearing leggings, slippers, feeling a little less fancy. Yet productivity isn’t slowing down for me, Management Presentations, Corporate […]

Short Poems: Remote Work + Virtual Access Weekend Reflections

Fall Break – 24 Hours in Canada

As Anita alluded in her blog about Chicago, fall break as a second year is a much more relaxing experience. I had grand plans of taking advantage being so close to Canada to drive through Ontario to Quebec and back. But as fate would have it, the last week of Mini 1 I caught the […]

Fall Break – Chicago Highlights

As a second year, life is a lot easier when it comes to fall break.

This summer I was fortunate enough to enjoy an internship in one of the top rising MBA careers – Product Management at a Tech firm. I had a great experience that exceeded all of my expectations of what an internship might be and thought some things would be worth sharing, especially if it helps any prospective MBA product managers out there.

Road Trip to Philly

One of the reasons I was excited to go to school in Pittsburgh is its accessibility to surrounding cities. I’ve never been to Philadelphia and when I found out that my favorite artist, whom I have been following for two years, was coming there with a concert, it was a good reason to visit! I’ll […]

Note to Future Self: Access Weekends – DC and San Jose

Dear Future Self, I wanted to recap the experience of attending classes in unique environments, namely DC and San Jose.  You arrive to a previously unknown place and are subsequently surrounded by all the familiar faces that you’ve come to know over the past few months.  Your cohort and you have bonded in a way […]

Starting a New Tepper MBA Tradition – 100 Night Party!
