Moments of Fall in Chapel Hill

As I near the end of my second year at business school, I captured the moments of the fall season through the lens – see below! The colors of leaves seemed shimmering with tints of red, yellow and colors in between, and the roads laid with the bed of leaves forming a soft carpet cover. The somber sky with changing shades of blue and white cleared the dust with rain, and the growing cold seeped in through the skin. All of this would keep the memories of Chapel Hill alive. As I took a trip around the campus, the wet walls bearing the history of so many graduating classes made me feel nostalgic as we the MBA class of ‘09 Read More

The No Blame Game

It is like those long winter months that give you terrible mood swings every day. Crumbling markets seems to mimic the dry winter. Any discussion in class, at cafeteria, in a bar on Franklin Street or even while building the roof for Habitat for Humanity house ends up in counting the points that Dow Jones lost, and evaluating its ‘so what’ (Ask any student taking Consulting Frameworks class). The behavior is atypical as a response to the market fever. When I came to business school, I had no clue about how tough it could get. Earning higher than average salaries, spending evenings at good restaurants, going for movies and shopping at premium malls, I had not envisioned the consequences of Read More

Glimpse of Asia Night

Posted by : Trisha Every year the ‘International Business Association’ encourages students at Kenan-Flagler to showcase the cultures and traditions of the international community at Asia Night. Beginning with splendid exotic delicacies from countries like China, Taiwan, Japan, Thailand and India, the night ensues to some equally exquisite cultural performances. The range varies from dance, drama to musical pieces, not to mention the vibrant spirits of the performers. This year I got a chance to witness the humdrum from close quarters including performing on the stage. The venue was reflecting with the traditional colorful garbs of International representation. The colors, the music and applauds of the audience resonated through the auditorium as the night grew younger. The evening was the Read More

Wonderful Getaway

  Posted By : Trisha One of the ‘opportunities’ for Premier Fellows is the invitation to the ‘Retreat Program’ which is a great getaway from the daily hustle bustle of the business school after an exasperating mod I and II and not to forget the internship search process.   This year the Retreat was held at the pristine Governor’s Club, a visual delight in itself. The time I spent helped me in rejuvenating myself both physically and mentally. While providing some food for thought through the introspection of what I am headed for in the long run, it was also a great opportunity to know more about some of my classmates and their experiences. It was a revelation of the unique attributes, perceptions and x-factors Read More

Unity in Diversity

Posted by Trisha. There are so many things that you can talk about when asked about Kenan-Flagler. One of the top reasons I chose to be here was because of the incredible diversity of the class. I knew I could learn the most when I could share my thoughts with friends from far and beyond, an experience that is unparalleled. The past 8 months have been the most amazing time. I have made friends from places I had just read about. I have enhanced my knowledge of their culture, traditions and economic issues (I tend to bring my ‘business self’ back every time I am swayed by a literary draft). I vividly recall answering hundreds of questions about India while Read More
