OK, I’ll admit that it’s a little odd to commute every day from Cape Cod to Boston to get an MBA. But it is far from unheard of. Most people in Boston have no idea how many people commute every day from Cape Cod to Boston, five days a week, and do it without fail, for decades.
One of my best friends in high school, her dad did it for his whole career. It’s really not the end of the world. I wouldn’t call it exactly ideal, but there are worse things in life.
But I’ve seen enough eyebrows on the foreheads of my friends and colleagues hit the hairline, as it were, to feel that perhaps this whole “commute from Cape Cod” thing might need a little demystifying.
So, herewith, I give you part one in an occasional series of videos about life as an MBA student at the Simmons School of Management. Or, at least, life as this MBA student at the Simmons School of Management.
I’d love to hear from you, if there’s anything in particular you’d like to see in upcoming episodes. Email me to request a topic, an interview, or to get an answer to a certain question.
