International Club Pot Luck

AebelskiverSwedish meatballs? Lefse? Aebelskiver? But which one should I make for the International Club’s Pot Luck lunch on November 1? This is probably one of my favorite student club events of the year. We all have a favorite dish that was prepared at family dinners when we were kids and now students, staff and faculty have the opportunity to recreate those dishes and share them with each other. There are foods I have never tried before and some that show up each year. But one thing is for sure – it will be a great time! I recall from years back the sticky rice, the szechuan chicken, the music from Turkey and the slide show of great places around the world. It truly is an event that allows students a break from the rigors of class to a world of culinary delights in our own MBA Commons. Our International Business Club officers, Summer Schneider (President) and Eric Sharma (Communications) are busy collecting information on what dishes will arrive next week. If you haven’t signed up to bring something, contact them now! You really don’t want to miss out on this event!! Which reminds me…I still need to decide what to bring.  Any requests?

The Business of Golf: Lessons Learned at UST

WirthAs I look over the list of 50+ attendees for the Third Annual Full-time UST MBA Student & Alumni Golf outing this weekend, it reminds me of an article I read online from INC. – “5 Business Lessons Learned on the Golf Course”

The article states that golf “remains one of the greatest ways to build and maintain solid business relationships” and provides you with 5 of Arnold Palmer’s principles that are relevant to business.  These 5 principles are almost parallel to the strategies discussed in UST’s Graduate Business Career Service’s (GBCS) Career Labs for Full-time MBA students.  Here’s a quick comparison:

INC: “Always Give a Firm Handshake”
GBCS:  Always give a firm handshake

INC: “Don’t Dwell on Yesterday’s News”
GBCS:  No matter what your background is, make it relevant to the position you are aspiring for.  Tell your story.

INC: “Practice Like A Pro”
GBCS: Practice your elevator pitch

INC: “Use Fear For Fuel”
GBCS: Be passionate about what you do and do it well.  Be persistent.  Don’t be afraid to take risks.

INC: “Befriend Your Enemy…don’t think about your competitors as enemies, but as a challenge for you to work harder”
GBCS: UST has a solid, accredited MBA program.  Be proud of it.  You’re just as good (if not better) than graduates from other accredited MBA programs.  Believe it.

So as you head out to the course possibly for one of the last times this season, remember that the golf course is a great place to have fun, enjoy the outdoors and cultivate lasting business relationships.  Just don’t forget to put a few business cards in your golf bag.
