Bye Bye Summer and Hello Fall Quarter

Wei Huang TMMBA Class 11

Summer quarter ended on August 28, 2011 when our Macro Economics and Marketing exams were due. Now, there is a nice break before fall quarter, which starts on September 22 to 24 for the Monday section and September 29 to October 1.

Fall quarter 2011 will have a new twist. Every student will have new teams. There was an option for students in the Monday section to move over to the Wednesday section and vice-versa. A total of 6 students from each section swapped sections so a total of 12 students from both sections. Come to think of it, this sounds like reality TV show. We are all going to have all new study mates and some will have all new sections.

September 22, we start the Fall quarter with the Leadership Immersion on enhancing our leadership skills.  This is a 3 hours on Thursday and 8 hrs each on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday.  We had something similar when we started.  It was great to work with my current team (C5).  As I type, I just forgot I need to turn in homework today.  It’s a set of questions that will determine what my leadership style is.  Ok, got go…
