A truly international MBA or... the way you make it

It has been almost two months since I left SOM for the summer. I spent the first month+ being lazy in Bulgaria – sleeping late, traveling, partying, good stuff. I was probably one of the last few of my class to start an internship – just last week. I will spend the summer in London and since I came here it has been 90% sunny days, contrary to expectations. Being in a new city is a lot of fun – except the fact that everybody drives on the wrong side. The fact that people know to which game the term “football” rightfully refers is quite refreshing. Spending ten weeks in the UK fits nicely with the international experience that I am getting at SOM – after I am done I will go back to Bulgaria for 2-3 weeks, then take a 2,500km-long drive to Barcelona where I will spend my fall semester at IESE on study-abroad. The US – Costa Rica – the UK – Spain – these are the countries that I will have been to as part of my MBA education. I could not have asked for more. On my way to Spain I plan to visit Croatia’s Adriatic coast and some of Italy – the drive should take between 5 and 7 days. The tent in my car’s trunk should give me all the flexibility I need so no firm plan for the trip will be prepared. I plan to basically drive my car and stop at different places that seem interesting. Cheers!
