Q: Welcome Jeremy! Can you tell us about your role at MBAT and what you do? What did you learn that will apply to your future career?
I am VP Sports with Mayank Shankar and our role is "just" to organize the 25 sport activities. Our goal is to make sure every sport will be perfectly organized during MBAT (3-day event). We work with official referees and equipment suppliers. We prepared rules for each sport. We built the schedule of sports. We booked off-campus sites for Golf, Rowing, Tennis or Swimming activities and therefore organized transportation for students. We also support all sport managers from HEC MBA, we help them to build a competitive team for MBAT to bring the trophy back to HEC. (Last year LBS finished 1st, Oxford 2nd and HEC 3rd).
