Spending a whole year of your life inside a pressure cooker with 149 other individuals is a challenge, no doubt about that. However by the end of the process you’ll have such strong bonds with those people that you can be certain you’ll have friends for life. This is one of the gifts the MBA gave me and anyone who goes through such a programme knows what I’m talking about.
These are special friends. They are different in nature from the ones I had before. They are scattered all over the world and I don’t talk to them on a daily basis. In spite of distance or irregular contact the interesting part is that whenever we get together it is like time froze. It’s like we are back to the Cambridge times. It’s like we never left.
That is an invaluable gift and the pictures show what happens when we get together three years after the end of the programme in some (not so) random part of the world.
