I’m so sorry I haven’t posted in so long! I feel like I do more apologizing for not posting instead of posting, and boy, is my face red. Last semester was extremely busy as I took Global Management, Innovation, Entrepreneurial Finance, Investment Analysis, and Financial Strategy. Needless to say, I had a full course load. For Global Management my group created an entry plan for the Cheesecake Factory in India. This project induced hunger like I’ve never had before, and we often joked (sometimes more than joked) about going to the Cheesecake Factory in the Pru to do “market research.” My Innovations group created a series of innovation ideas for Tiffany & Co. In Entrepreneurial Finance, I created a business plan for a brewery. For these projects, I was able to work with people from the program that I was unable to before. Although I really liked my group for the first year, it was interesting and informative to get to know the different work patterns of other people. Due to these projects and other classes which were demanding, I was unable to find time to blog.
Northeastern is currently is Summer I semester. Originally, I had told my husband how happy I was to be only taking two classes in Summer I and II – I had glorious visions of spending my summer on the beach. Jim is a Northeastern alum, and he just laughed at my expectations. However, these courses are much more intense than I had thought they would be - full class in half the time. Currently I am taking International Finance and Business Turnarounds, and for Summer II, I am taking Valuation and Value Creation and Real Estate.
In between Spring Semester and Summer I, Jim and I were finally able to go on our honeymoon! We stayed at the Hilton resort in Puerto Vallarta, Mexico. During our week there we took a zip-lining tour through the jungle, visited a tequila distillery, saw the set of the movie Predator, and spent a lot of time at the beach. By the time we had to come back to Boston, we were already planning another trip to Vallarta. I can’t wait to go back!
