What does it mean to be on your MBA journey?

Hello everyone, The fact that I started writing this blogpost roughly a month ago, but am posting it right now should be an indicator of how much happening your life at Tepper can get, during your MBA. And if you think, this is just because of studying and recruiting, think again. Every day, you’ll basically […]

Celebrating Diwali- MSPM way!

Last week, my house in Pittsburgh was filled with lights, love, and laughter as the MSPM batch came together to celebrate Diwali, the Indian festival of lights. Considered one of the biggest holidays in India, this festival celebrates the triumph of good over evil. It is the time of the year to deck your home, […]

Shedding My Skin

Every cell in the human body regenerates, each given another chance to live and to grow. Like snakes, we too shed our skin, and biologically we are brand new! Why am I telling you this? Because getting into grad school after 9 years is nothing less than another chance at life.   Early life- Hi! […]

Basecamp, Class of 2024

“Hi I’m Serena, I got in last night and today is my first day,” I said nervously to my classmate as we clipped ourselves into the safety lines. He laughed, “Not a bad day to start.” He stepped his foot on the first log suspended 15 feet above the ground. I watched him grab the […]

Recruiting while Working while Going to School

I often joke that I don’t know what “hobbies” are now that I’m in school part-time while working full time. 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.
