  • In fact it s what they ve been waiting for ever since August when classes first started So they ll spend the next two weeks catching up on reading cases Making outlines Talking through the issues with classmates And taking practice final exams All in anticipation of that breakthrough moment that will change everything That giant piece of information that opens up the entire class for us That gust of insight that gives us exactly what we need to ace the final exams Though unfortunately it almost never happens that way On the other hand in business school the process all happens more gradually as MBAs have to learn a lot more on the way to finals period First years have more assignments to complete and more team discussions to have They also have to think about recruiting activities now even during the final two weeks of the first quarter So not only do they have to learn but their time is also more limited So they spend less time learning and more time on other things during the final two weeks But no matter which school you belong to you ll definitely be busy Studying and learning one concept at a time And as you study you hope to hit a tipping point where you start learning more information more rapidly And then you ll eventually finish your first final exam Then another Then another And at some point you ll be finished As a prize law students go take two weeks to relax and rest up before another grueling semester of 1L MBAs on the other hand will be heading to Telluride CO for Ski trip CLICK HERE for last year s article on ski trip to celebrate finally finishing up Either way most people at Kellogg and

  • Happy Thanksgiving. Here's What I'm Thankful For - JEREMYCWILSON.COM | JEREMYCWILSON.COM
    a few of the things that I m most thankful for this year I m thankful for having the chance to get an education and the opportunity to be enrolled in a great graduate program today This is especially true considering where everything started Youngstown OH as my access and economic means were significantly limited It was certainly not something that always seemed possible I m also thankful for the opportunities I ve had access to as a result of being in school Great clubs great organizations and great job opportunities My goal is to continue to do what I can to help others from my community create those same opportunities I m also thankful for my parents who supported me and pushed me along to pursue a better education Sometimes it seemed hard but when I was young my parents made sure that I stayed on track In large part because they wanted me to achieve the things they never had the chance to I m also thankful for my great classmates many of whom are some of my best friends today When you re going through the fire in school it s always great to have classmates and friends you can count on and enjoy the experience with I m also thankful for the JD MBAs here in my program Not only a really smart group but also a group where every one of us undergoes the same process We have to take extra classes We all have limited bidding points and multiple sets of emails to manage We all have to move cities multiple times And worst of all we all have to get on the shuttle every day in the final year And finally I m thankful for the Internet where we can I share this message with lots of people Not only is the net revolutionizing modern communication but it s also helping democratize access to information for those who need access the most In sum I m thankful for education I don t take it for granted and you shouldn t either The jobs we have access to earning potential we can achieve and most importantly the role we have the opportunity to take on in society are all a privilege So we should treat them as such We should use them as a platform A way to give back to those that helped us And a way to improve access in our communities For every person that got into a great school there are tens of thousands in the US and millions other nations that would love to same chance The chance to have our seat in school To take the exam that we complained about afterward To go to the classes we thought about skipping So let s show the world we are thankful and that we were the right people for the seats Happy Thanksgiving everyone Hopefully it s filled with family friends and most of all with lots of Thanks

    a shot Friday March 22nd 2013 Leadership No Comments Putting Yourself in Someone Elses Shoes Putting yourself in someone else s shoes takes serious effort That s why most of us don t do it The person who works at a call center that we re arguing about our cell phone bill with They don t have anything to do with the extra fees we were charged Neither do they usually have any power to change your bill But we still take our anger out on them instead of understanding what it s like to be on that side of the call The new cashier at Trader Joes who doesn t check you out as fast as the other lines We think she s just taking her time but in reality she just started two weeks ago and now it s rush hour and she s feeling stressed out But we get impatient look for an opportunity to switch lines at the last second and we don t smile when we finally get to the front The person who passess over your resume We didn t realize he had to look through 10 000 resumes and pick not just the best one but also one that fits in with the company rules In one case I ve seen the best candidate by far turned down because she lived a certain distance away which had nothing to do with her qualifications Yet we call the HR representative irrational and not good at their job The homeless person we pass on the street every day there are a lot in Chicago Many times we think why can t this person just find a job instead of asking me for money everyday But maybe maybe they were laid off in the recession or have a long term disability and now can t support themselves And maybe he is an injured war vet who never had got a job due to a disability after being sent back to the US We don t imagine how helpless or emabarrassed he must feel And new colleagues or friends that we disagree with People who not only see the world differently but who also don t know how you see the world because you don t really know them well We get upset quickly when we don t like their tone and when things don t turn out as planned But more often than not it all hinges on a misunderstanding not the thoughtlessness we accuse them of This is even more true with significant others when there is more emotion attached If you put yourself in someone else s shoes you will understand what it is like to be them To see the world how they see it and understand their worries and anxieties But when we do that we also run the risk of being told NO figuring out we were wrong or being forced to compromise our own views That s why most of us don t do it In a world of too many options and too little time it s easier than ever to ignore other people s views and stick with your own But that doesn t make it the best approach Sunday March 17th 2013 Business School 1 Comment The Connections We Find In just a couple of years the Internet has changed what is possible We ve gone from a world that is largely disconnected to one that connects in less than an instant and have created systems that allow us to actively engage the people we connect with MBA programs have long been good at emphasizing the importance of connecting Connecting with classmates professors employers and alumni But now it s easier than ever to find someone s information reach out to them and tell them how you are connected In fact this happened to me and my dad just two days ago A few days ago my father s company brought in a new CEO The CEO was out around the US looking at the locations and a few days ago he was out where my dad works My dad is known at every company he s been at for being very social and friendly and the top guys welcome him with open arms even though they do not work together Well on the day the CEO came my dad met the new CEO of the company He said they had a good exchange and he had a good feeling about the new CEO Not only was he capable but also nice and extraordinarily friendly The day after we met my dad called me up and told me the story I did not know it at the time but as it turns out the CEO went to Kellogg many years ago When I found out I couldn t believe it Without further ado I looked him up on LinkedIn as well as the company website and it was true He had a Kellogg MBA In fact a few folks from the company did After that I look up his contact info on the alumni database and sent an email just minutes ago Like I said it s easier than ever to find new connections today Stay tuned to see where this connection goes 3 17 Update I recently received a return email from the Kellogg alum We will be working to set up a time to grab coffee two or so weeks from now once his calendar clears This is good news but definitely not a surprise Kellogg alumni are incredibly friendly and understand the value of staying connected Stay tuned for future updates Saturday March 16th 2013 Networking No Comments Most Important Work In the midst of all the chaos in the world today it s more important than ever to focus on the most important work Unfortuantely today s world makes this more challenging Not only are there more soundbites to filter than ever but
