Favorite CCMBA class so far, and why:

Foundations of Strategy. Very practical in the real world, great case studies, and some of the best (and most heated) in-class discussions. One of the fastest three-hour classes you can take.

5 tips for the residencies:

  1. Bring some cold medication (everyone seems to get sick at point or another)
  2. Bring an unlocked cell phone—it comes in handy!!
  3. Noise canceling headphones are a necessity
  4. Travel light—consolidate binders and go digital as much as possible. It really saves weight.
  5. Make sure you are using WhatsApp, Google Voice, and/or Skype to keep in touch with family and friends, but most of you probably already know that
