Estimated reading time: 2 minutes

This week, Laura Sandoval shares a day in the life of a second-year MBA candidate at Harvard Business School. She shared her journey to HBS and how she’s spent her time in the program, including navigating MBA life during the coronavirus pandemic

As she shared her background and inside look at the HBS experience, she answered questions along the way. For example, she discussed applications, staying on top of finances in school and whether now is a good time for business school. She described Harvard’s famous case method and some of her coursework, and discussed her move from marketing to consulting (and entrepreneurship in the future).

In her #MBAchicTakeover, she shared what drives her extracurricular involvement and leadership roles within the Advertising and Marketing Club, Latino Student Organization and HBS Women’s Students Association. She also shared how her experiences as a first generation student and nonprofit founder drive her commitment to making space for those following in her footsteps.

On her walk to the Spangler Center, she demonstrated how students join virtual classes (stopping for COVID tests in between). One thing that stuck out was the commitment to creating as normal an experience as possible. Above all, the goal is clear: allowing students on campus to keep moving forward with their studies and development. She described it as a “bubble” at the start of her takeover.
