Goodbye and hello

At the end of this week the MBA Office will close for the end of year break. Our class of 2016 has already flown the nest and participants from 2017 are getting ready for their adventure with us next year.

I would particularly like to thank our faithful blog writers of this year: Kunal, Aysylu, Silvia and Fouad for sharing their stories, challenges, moments of inspiration and successes with us throughout the year. I hope you have enjoyed sharing their journey as much as I have.

I would also like to thank all of our guest writers who have added their perspectives and experiences, as well as our Japanese bloggers Takumi, Jin, Maki and Takashi who have been keeping our Japanese blog alive.

Over the next few weeks, there will be a couple of guest entries from some of our 2017 participants about their admissions experiences, and then our new blog team will begin to introduce themselves: Priyanka Chandran from India, Lucien Chiron from France, Mohammed Allam from Egypt and Sathappan Sathappan from Singapore. Please join me in welcoming them to the blog and wishing them a great year at IMD.

To all of our readers, I would like to wish you a very happy holiday season and look forward to another MBA year starting January 12th, 2017.
