They weren’t kidding 1st term is a lot of work – and I’m playing footyball.


At this rate, it looks like I’m going to apologize for not posting every post. So what I’m going to do here is apologize for all the future posts that will come late and or be senseless.

Now, the workload just keeps on piling up, and the fact that I was sick didn’t help the situation much either. Truth be told, I feel a little overwhelmed with all they have us doing. Last week for example, I got home from school at 22:30, and it’s approximately half past midnight and I just got into bed from reading Financial Analysis. I guess this is why they call MBA’s prep for i-Bankers…

… despite not having much time to lounge around, drink beers, and philosophize the deeper meaning of life, I’ve decided to join the ESADE footy-ball team, a.k.a. Football, and Soccer in North America. They’re apparently playing in some sort of tournament now, but practice is on Wednesday, and I have my cleats ready to be purchased after school tomorrow (thanks mom and dad for sending them over, like I asked 12 bagillion times)…

… next up, we have internships. And that means, cold calling season is here. I’ve basically narrowed it down to about 8 companies, the top being the EMI Group, Sony-BMG UK, Warner Music Group UK, and a special one that I’m keeping secret (for fear of competition from anyone else reading this blog), if any of these don’t work out there’s a few indy’s as well as Universal, and a slew of Industry that catches my interest as well.

Lastly, it looks like there’s now a 50/50 chance of us working towards developing a business plan for this company idea I came up with a while ago, too bad there’s no time to really sink our teeth in this term, and yes I know, I could forego the footyball, but that would mean more jamon, more tapas, more, bocadillos, and a more rotund Jacek, and I’m pretty sure no one wants that. I sure know I don’t.

Until next time…

    Does your footyball team play against other graduate schools? I mean really, you guys are older and more experienced (reportedly) than the undergrads.

    well… we play in tournaments here in BCN, we play against that “other” Business School in BCN, IESE. 😉 and then there’s the MBA Olympics in Paris in May… so yeah, I guess we do 🙂
