An MBA is a degree like no other. The hours are long and arduous, the practical elements often take place in the real business world and the prep to get onto the degree is incredibly competitive and stressful. We here at TopMBA think these memes entirely sum up the whirlwind that is an MBA program - from day one right through to the very end!
