What should I do now? (accepted at top 10 school)


Sven L.
Hi all, I'll be attending a top 10 MBA program starting in the fall. Glad the application period is over but now I need to find something to do to occupy myself before I start. Any suggestions on reading materials, or online classes I can take, or something else? I want to hit the ground running. Thanks!

If there are subject areas you don't feel confident about, you can always take free online classes to brush up. But I think a lot of students take this time to relax a bit and prepare for the often overwhelming experience of first year MBA classes...

Congratulations Sven!
Besides relaxing, you may want to do any combination of the following

1) Bootcamp: Identify your areas of improvement and take classes / Summer boot-camp. For example, if you feel you need more time with Accounting & Finance since you have different educational background, you may want to explore bootcamp options at your school.

2) Professional certifications: You can explore the pre-requisites, study and exam options for various certifications / courses like PMP, Green Belt Lean Six Sigma, CFA, CPA, ITIL etc. Depending upon your career vision.

3) Network: If you are new to the area, or to the country. Arrive early if possible and talk with current students, recent alumni near the area and/or travel through major cities to unwind, network and have fun at the same time.

Good Luck!
