Don’t wait to develop your network
The number one mistake I see new MBA students make is waiting to develop their networks.
Top B-schools offer an amazing (and sometime overwhelming) set of opportunities to network. Students should never miss a chance to share coffee or a lunch with a visiting executive.
Even after a long day, stopping by for a reception can be career changing.
I participated in a roundtable article about MBA student mistakes and how to avoid them. More than 20 people contributed to the article and the final product has some useful advice for MBA students.
