20 (Non-Academic) Highlights of My 1st Year MBA

The first year of my MBA has come to an end and what a crazy first year it has been! I have done and seen so much in a short period of time, it’s so hard to imagine that it was just a year. Now that summer vacation is here and I have a lot more free time (apart from my internship) I’m going to make up for lost time with my posts. Here’s my 1st year in review!

1. Moved to Barcelona


2. Became president of Sports Business Club


3. Started Learning to Climb

4. Snowboarded for the Second Time
