TopMBA Weekly Pulse October 15

The latest WeeklyPulse from TopMBA

Welcome, once again, to the TopMBA.com Weekly Pulse. We have been busy this week, as we are every week, digging through the MBA blogosphere to bring you an update of what is going on in the world of postgraduate business education.

EF Essays surveys the culmination of GMAT preparation with a test day guide. Meanwhile, on the other side of the admissions gateway, Journey to INSEAD has officially started the countdown to orientation that will take place for his cohort at the start of 2016. Elsewhere in Europe, My Journey through the MBA has already wrapped up orientation at Oxford Saïd (where it is termed 'Launch') and is rearing to get started on coursework.

Moving across the Atlantic, HBS Accept blogger, Courtney Fleck is figuring out how to juggle work, school and life as a part-time MBA student at IU Kelley. Speaking of balance, Asanas and an MBA is learning to stand on their head, which is bound to prove useful in business school, surely?

The education of an MBA does not come from professors and case studies alone, and UCD Smurfit blogger, Ashish Babbar, is learning a lot from classmates. Speaking of learning outside the classroom, Smurfit EMBA blogger, Conor Burke shares some lessons on time management. Duke Fuqua blogger, Ross Boomer wasn’t sure about fitting in, but the school’s LGBT community has already managed to convince him otherwise. Finally, the MIT tradition that is the Hackathon turns out to be a lesson in just about everything, even how unravelling in the final moments before a presentation can be a good thing.
