Right now my brain is mush – four weeks in and work and study thoughts have merged into a big muddle. I have taken to calling some of my work team by the names of my MBA team and no one in our office knows who Derry and Kerry are! It has been a whirlwind month – your weekend suddenly has a new schedule of EMBA reading or project calls or class and while they advise you that this is normal, it really is not. I am becoming acclimatized to this strange new world and developing skim reading skills whilst grasping very quickly the importance of listening to and learning from my intelligent, friendly fellow students. Their commitment to getting the most out of their EMBA experience is enhancing my MBA experience and dare I say it – creating more than a few laughs along the way!
