Teams are a central part of the Foster MBA Program. During the first year nearly every class requires you to complete work with your core team of 5 or 6 students, whether it’s a research paper, a presentation or both. Foster’s Leadership Fellows program matches a 2nd year student with a 1st year team to provide support and guidance. As 2nd year students, by now we’ve all learned a thing or two, from tools for facilitating a brainstorming session to the secret for cheap parking on campus. Yesterday twenty Leadership Fellows spent our Saturday preparing to fill this role, revisiting communication frameworks we learned last year from The Glasers, as well as brainstorming how to best support the 1st year students during their upcoming LEAD Week, beginning tomorrow.
It’s shocking to realize that an entire year has already gone by since we were just plunging in to our first year at Foster. Although our heads are spinning a little from the lightning speed of the past year, we’re all very ready and willing to pass on the knowledge we’ve gained in that time. It’s a perfect example of what makes the atmosphere at Foster so unique in the MBA world.
