How ESSAM enriched my MBET experience

After completing the Master of Business, Entrepreneurship, and Technology (MBET) program, a team of Conrad students, including Steven Wang, ventured to Denmark to attend the European Summer School for Advanced Management (ESSAM).  These are Steven's reflections on his experiences at ESSAM:

Adventures in arts entrepreneurship

Four months ago, I began my Enterprise Co-op (E Co-op) term as a 3A student of English and History at the University of Waterloo. I am currently finishing up the term as a published author… and still a student. I have no plans to quit my day job just yet.

I spent my E Co-op term interviewing seniors in Stratford about their past, and gathering their stories into an anthology which is now available for purchase by family and community members. E Co-op allowed me to spend a work term doing exactly what I want, and have always wanted-to do: write a book.

Student blog: taking the leap of faith

A year ago I was working for a local waterloo startup as a business development specialist. I deeply loved my job and my colleagues and was never really considering going back to school. One day, I met with an old friend for coffee, this friend was a student in the MBET program and could not stop talking about the program!

Student blog:expect the unexpected

Life is filled with unexpected events! During the first week of class, we were told that “50% of life is about showing up” and I have kept that advice in my subconscious ever since.

Most entrepreneurs suffer from the “J-curve,” “hockey stick,” or “valley of death” syndrome. Let me be the first to admit, as an impoverished student and budding entrepreneur, I “sometimes” (read: always) seek ways to reduce expenditures. Okay, as painful embarrassing as it is for me to admit, “sometimes” may be an understatement. Frugality is encoded in my DNA.
