The tranquility of winter break is but a memory now, with the second semester kicking off tomorrow. Campus is alive with returning students with massive amounts of luggage in tow, looking very refreshed.
As I wrote in an earlier post, the first year at HBS is called Required Curriculum (RC) and all students take the same courses. Our second semester course load is as follows:
- LCA: Leadership & Corporate Accountability
- BGIE: Business, Government, and the International Economy
- STRAT: Strategy
- TEM: The Entrepreneurial Manager
- FIN2: Finance 2
- FIELD3: Field Immersion Experiences for Leadership Development 3
As one would expect from the title “Required”, all classes are essential to business leaders, and are also known as crown subjects. FIELD 3 carries on from the first semester, and this time we venture into small startup businesses.
The first semester flew by leaving us with a high level of fatigue, but I am hoping the second semester will be more enjoyable, allowing increased time for extracurricular activities.
