ONE-YEAR AT GOIZUETA: PRATEEK GOEL – SECOND SEMESTER OVER, 5 MONTHS AWAY FROM GRADUATION!

Well, the second semester is about to end and I am just 5 months away from graduation! I am very excited for the next semester as I have multiple things planned.  I will be going to Washington Campus – A one week course that helps us understand how the US government works. I have participated in Goizueta Marketing Strategy Consultancy and will be working for a client in the energy sector and I am also trying to fit in 2-3 trips in between in addition to the classes. Stone Mountain Earlier this semester, I along with several first year...

ONE-YEAR AT GOIZUETA: PRATEEK GOEL – ENJOYING SCHOOL WHILE I STILL CAN, TIME IS RUNNING OUT FAST!

I can’t believe the second semester is already half over. Time flies. At the end of the summer semester I managed to catch a quick trip to Seattle to visit my sister. While it was a relaxing trip, it was the calm before the storm. I haven’t stopped since the fall semester started. Recruiting is an equally time consuming task as is studying for classes. However, the entire journey has been accompanied by new and challenging experiences, new team members, exploring new and exciting places. I went to Chicago in October and plan to do Miami in November! Integration...

ONE-YEAR AT GOIZUETA: PRATEEK GOEL – BIDDING FAREWELL TO THE SUMMER…HELLO FALL!

Finally, the so called “worse” three months of the entire MBA program have ended. We had memorable times that some of us will remember for a long time, and we couldn’t have been prepared for the sadness we felt from leaving. As I mentioned in one of the previous blogs, MBA is all about knowing more people, participating in extracurricular activities, socializing, going out of your comfort zone, and yes…studying! While we look forward to the fall, let me summarize the summer semester. The summer was as intense as it could get, I made many new friends, studied hard,...

ONE-YEAR AT GOIZUETA: PRATEEK GOEL – THE PROMISE OF A CLOSE AND SHARING COMMUNITY

Block one was tough, but block two has been arguably much tougher and much more hectic. A LOT has happened in the last 3-4 weeks. Several field visits, social activities, campus networking events, and fall electives registration, which I had to fit in between the 5 classes we were enrolled in! (I even fit in a quick 4th of July trip to NYC and Boston). The highlight from block two that I found most enlightening was our FIFA match viewings. Now I know you’re probably wondering, “How can watching FIFA matches be the highlight of a Goizueta MBA Program?”  During...

ONE-YEAR AT GOIZUETA: PRATEEK GOEL – FEELS LIKE A YEAR ALREADY

What happens when 57 working professionals from all over the world come together to finish a two year MBA in a single year? All hell breaks loose!  – Each day feels like eternity. Precisely, it has just been three weeks since classes started and it is illusory that in such a short time we have learnt so much, developed such strong bonds and most importantly I feel like I am a part of a big and loving family – the GBS community. When I first started class, I believed it will take the entire summer to know each one...
