BoothRight is an annual Spring Break trip to Israel that is open only to second-year students. Because of its timing and awesome itinerary, BoothRight is the perfect way to finish the Booth MBA. Essentially, BoothRight is actually a student-led trip that is initiated and led by second-year Boothies from Israel (fun fact: Israel is among the most represented countries per capita in the Booth student body). Each year, a team of 4-7 Israelis takes the reigns and organizes the BoothRight trip for 100+ Boothies. While the reward in leading such a big and diverse group of business school peers is huge, there’s also a lot of effort involved in “making it work” spanning operational, financial, and marketing functions.
I never considered myself as an extrovert. That is, until my wife pointed out the differences between us—claiming that we are situated quite far apart on the extrovert / introvert spectrum, hence fueled by very different things. This got me thinking about the matter and its connection to the MBA.
I embarked on a late January VC Trek shortly after learning that I was chosen to serve as a co-chair of the Entrepreneurship and Venture Capital Group. This revelation changed my outlook on the Trek: I became EVEN MORE aware of the contributions made by the fearless second year co-chairs, who worked relentlessly to come up with an astonishing experience.
