It's the start of the new academic year and my colleagues and I are really excited about launching this blog so we can share more information about the Stanford Graduate School of Business and the Stanford MBA Program with you.
Many of you will wonder why Derrick Bolton, Assistant Dean and Director of MBA Admissions doesn't host this blog himself. Short answer: because we have so much other work for him :-)
But seriously, Derrick would love to chat with you on this blog and he will guestblog on a regular basis.
So, who am I? My name is Rita Winkler and I will host and moderate this blog.
Since this blog isn't about me but rather about you and your interest in the Stanford MBA Program, let's keep my bio interesting and brief: born and raised in Germany; traveled to the US where I fell in love with the country and stayed; studied Anthropology and Geography; together with my husband started a company whose proudest accomplishment included the development of virtual reality surgical simulators that allowed surgeons to practice their techniques on computers instead of on animals such as dogs and pigs. After we closed the company I went to work for the MBA Admissions Office here at the Stanford Graduate School of Business where I drive everyone crazy with my freakish punctuality.
That's it, more later,
