Here’s a video produced by Fuqua School of Business that shows their strategy for developing leaders for the 21st century. The class saw this video early in the London residency, on a gigantic screen with the volume cranked. You lose a little bit of the vibe with a smaller YouTube video, but the message is loud and clear all the same.

I wasn’t really looking for a kick in the pants
December 2nd, 2009 by Randy Zwitch · Semester 2
So in a previous post, I was talking about how I took it easy after getting back from Dubai, and that I needed some motivation. I had just finished the Managerial Economics exam (which I killed by the way, sorry for you curve riders!) and started the airline decision model, and I hoped these two assignments would keep me in forward motion.

- Decision Models quiz (Optimization)
- Decision Models team project (molasses)
- Decision Models personal project

Looking back to study for the DM quiz, I found nothing of value except for a messily scribbled “so hungover” on day 3 and some cute doodles. What was it about Dubai that got in the way of schooling?
To be clear, I am a pretty meticulous student. I am always focused and am rarely unprepared. The feeling of not understanding what is being discussed in class can put me on the verge of a panic attack – so naturally I do my best to avoid this feeling by paying close attention and staying up-to-date on assignments.
