The time has come, our time as Yale SOM students is over but our paths together are only beginning.
Those that motivate us to keep going, and rumor says, that once you find something that can give you all of these six, will turn you into an addict: Significance, Certainty, Uncertainty, Connection, Growth and Contribution. That’s exactly what this past year was for me.

If you have had the chance to visit Israel, you will agree with me that it is a very unique country, enriched by different religions, cultures, global history, technology, and much more; and all that happening in country that is 424 kilometers long from north to south and 114 kilometers wide from east to west.

Exciting times at SOM! It is the start of the third week of spring semester. Everyone seems to have settled really well into the new environment by embracing the transparency theme of Evans Hall. Transparency is important in today's business and society and thus it has been given special emphasis at Yale SOM.

I love new year’s eve. That time of the year when you start thinking about everything you’ve achieved, how many new places you visited, how much time did you get to spend with your loved ones and even sometimes how much you didn’t. If it wasn’t that much of a good year, it then becomes the perfect opportunity for a brand new start.
