Brady Clegg (MBA ’14) likes to joke that his secret weapon to maintaining work-life balance at business school is that he’s married. “Sundays I can be working, not recovering,” he says, contrasting his typical weekend to that of his peers. Clegg says he found a way to balance involvement on campus with academic success by approaching school “like a job,” which enabled him to focus and prioritize his tasks. The first quarter is essentially a “crash course,” he admits, but students can succeed by budgeting their time wisely. “There’s no magic formula,” he says. “I just made sure that I allocated enough to do well.” Overall, Clegg says he enjoyed the core classes because they provided a framework to help solve a broad range of problems, but he’s also excited by Anderson’s increased emphasis on bringing in real life practitioners who enrich the curriculum by speaking about their experiences.
