Swipe left to see a day in the life of @cyncook, an MBA student at @gwuniversity! Read below to follow her throughout her day and to hear her unique perspective on the MBA experience: [2/5] “Attempting to win $700million so I can quit my job and become a fulltime student! One of the biggest challenges as an MBA student is balancing family/friends, work, and school. Work and school are incredibly fulfilling endeavors, yet when combined, both command a significant amount of my time." [3/5] “Went to Crumbs & Whiskers in Georgetown thinking I’d be able to study for an hour or two while enjoying the company of adorable and adoptable kitties. How wrong I was! #angelkittybaby #studyingdidNOThappen #whoops” [4/5] “My husband tagged along so we could get some quality time together and get ourselves out of the house. Having a supportive partner / network definitely helps me get through the more challenging times.” [5/5] “Business Ethics Session #1 with my friends Will, Darnese, and Matt. My favorite aspect about the MBA Program at GW, second to learning #allthethings, is making friends with terrific, hilarious, and super sharp people. We’re in this journey together and it’s a wild journey, indeed!”
