A lazy update

Been very busy... my friends Amy and Ryan visited me last week... I went on a tour of the Vuitton factory in northern Paris last Friday... held a practice on Sunday for Ultimate Frisbee and joined the rugby team afterwards for drills... former CEO of Schneider Electric and Tuck MBA grad gave a speech on Tuesday... and I'm now gearing up for the MBAT.

My duties: host for the wonderful people at Bocconi, captain of the Ultimate frisbee team, mover, laborer, bartender, check-in person and cameraman. This is going to be an amazing weekend... now back to work!

Le first post

Although Core 2 is in full swing, I might as well start blogging now about my experience at HEC. We have three huge events lined up in May.

On Thursday Valéry Giscard D'Estaing, the former French President, will address the HEC community on the upcoming EU Constitution referendum. Later in the evening David Guetta, the biggest DJ in France, will perform on campus. And at the end of the month, we are hosting the MBAT, a three-day sports tournament involving 14 business schools and 2,000 MBA students.

It's too bad I wasn't able to blog since day 1 at HEC back in January. I could give the usual excuse - I couldn't find the time to blog regularly - but that wouldn't be entirely true. No, the real reason was because I wanted to find a catchy name for my blog. After four months of intense brainstorming I came up with... an article plus the word "MBA". Can you tell that I won't be in the marketing track?
