A few words from MBASA 2020 President:
Our MBA Class set off with the wind for a well-deserved holiday. Some us used this time to explore the festive side of Barcelona. Others traveled to spend time with family and loved ones. Many adventured to see parts of the world new to them. And perhaps most of us set time to complete a pre-read, case analysis, job application, or review of accounting 😉
Whichever way you spent your break, MBASA hopes you were able to relax and rejuvenate, and are ready to take on Term 2!
The mark of a new year is, for some, a time to reflect on the recent past and set personal resolutions to reach an aspiration in the coming year. I’m not someone who waits until New Year’s for this type of stuff, yet the timing was perfect to pause and think back on Term 1, rightly labeled as Awareness. The ESADE MBA has exposed us to much opportunity and challenge. It certainly has advanced my knowledge of myself and the world around me. I am armed with a greater perspective, and I hope you are, too.
In 2019, I wish the best to each of you in the pursuit of your aspirations. Continue to build on your strengths, while nurturing complementary skills. Focus even more on activities that matter most to you. Step into arenas that make you uncomfortable. Surround yourself with those who push you harder. Take setbacks and disappointments as necessary points in the journey. Create the path that is right for you. And, please, don’t forget to enjoy the present, and make cherished memories.
On behalf of your MBASA Board Representatives, I wish you a Happy New Year, and extend a warm welcome back as we set off on Term 2 together.
