Fridays from the Frontline: Steps

Welcome back to Fridays from the Frontline, our weekly summary of news and happenings from the business school blogosphere. Antoine de Saint-Exupéry, the author of The Little Prince, once said “What saves a man is to take a step. Then another step.” In the world of business school, current applicants are taking steps forward in their application process, while current students take steps through their business school life. 

MBA applicants are currently consumed with planning their next steps. PullingthatMBAtrigger has put together her final school list for round 2. MBA Black Girl on Campus is using her “All Things MBA” spreadsheet to plan her application, and My Life of Bliss examines her pre-MBA profile as she prepares to apply to MBA programs.  While some applicants are preparing for their next set of applications, others are finishing round 1 interviews and waiting to hear back from their round 1 choices. TopDogMBA is consumed with interview prep for MIT Sloan and Wharton.  Naija MBA Gal is staying away from the business school applicant forums until she receives interview news from Stanford. My Journey to Business School shares a summary of her UCLA interview for other Anderson hopefuls, and Under Prescription summarizes his interviews with Tuck and MIT Sloan.

Current students are enjoying the business school life. At MIT Sloan Student Blogs, Maria Troein describes a week in her life as a second-year MBA student. Sic Semper Progressi blogs about visiting GE to learn more about how they’re implementing LEAN for Darden’s Operations class. Finally, Debra Yoo describes competing in Johnson’s Battle of the Brands (BoB), a contest in which teams of students market different existing products to the Johnson community.

That’s everything for this week! Good luck with your applications and be sure to tune in next week for more news from the business school blogosphere!
