Coronavirus has changed the MBA experience. But it doesn’t have to ruin it

今回は皆さんにとって参考になりそうな点を記してみます。

■コロナ渦においてもネットワーキングをMBA学生は価値を置いている

Stanford大学組織行動学教授のリサーチによると、「選択肢が限られているとき、人はより多くの多様な解決策を生み出す」ことが示されています

これまでのようにface to faceコミュニケーションを図ることは難しくなりましたがバーチャル上でのネットワーキングは非常に活発です

-Virtual tours of the school & town for international students who could not make it to campus;
-Small outdoor socially distanced get togethers (e.g., BBQs);
-Virtual (and in-person outdoor) workout classes taught or hosted by classmates;
-Virtual (and in-person) small group volunteering events for local charities;
-Voting drives for the November Elections

ユニークな事例がいくつか掲載されていますが、その中でMBA時受験生にとても有益な情報がありましたので紹介します。

At Duke University’s Fuqua School of Business, Fuqua MBA Association Co-President Mike Treiser recognized a potential concern among onboarding the incoming Class of 2022 MBA students due to the constraints of Covid-19. Working alongside admissions personnel and numerous other Fuqua administrators, they set up weekly virtual onboarding events for their incoming MBA students on topics ranging from life in Durham, how the Administration was handling changing safety regulations, and how incoming students could prepare for business school. The responses of these sessions were overwhelmingly positive from both students and administrators. Even after things return to normal, Fuqua still hopes to utilize this approach.

留学を検討されている皆さんにとって、MBA留学に対して不安になることもあるでしょう。この時期だからこそ、皆さんが目指しているMBAコミュニティに対しての理解を深めていただきたいと思います。そしてそのコミュニティにアクセスすることをお勧めします。上述のように皆さんの考える以上にサポーティブなコミュニティが皆さんを待っています。そして、オンラインコミュニティだからこそ気軽にアクセスできることもぐっと増えています。
