Global Studies Opportunity

I participated in the Global Network Week with EGADE Business School in Mexico City. For one week, we learned how leading Mexican companies approach innovation, the startup ecosystem in Mexico and the culture and history of the country. It was also valuable meeting students from all over the world - 18 nationalities from 9 Global Network Business Schools were represented!

Favorite Yale SOM Course

Financial Fraud with Professor Jim Chanos. It is fascinating to learn about major financial frauds in the last 300-400 years - how and why it happened and the subsequent repercussions. Professor Chanos made it accessible by introducing frameworks and models that we subsequently used to dissect and analyze each of the major frauds.
