Takeover Touch MBA's Instagram for a Week!


"Each week, a new MBA in new city - posts about their favorite things to do "

Inspired by withthelocals, who wants to takeover touchmba for a week and show what doesn’t make the MBA brochure? :yum:


Ground rules:
(1) imagine you’re advising a good friend (an applicant) considering your MBA program - what should they know about your b-school experience?
(2) post at least 5 times
(3) introduce yourself in your first post (feel free to share your Instagram ID too)
(4) use hashtags #mba #mbalife #touchmba in every post + your hashtags
(5) respond to comments & questions
(6) feel free to use pictures or videos. some ideas: social life, living in your city, memorable classes/professors/classmates/b-school experiences, your internship/job journey, your daily routine, what you wish you had known, what can be improved, your mba lessons learned

Hey Darren - the platform is not letting me edit the post (Sorry, you can only mention 10 users in a post.)

Anyway, I would be happy to take over for the week of Sept 17. :slight_smile:


Awesome @rafaym, looking forward to it!


Hi Darren,

Amazing initiative! Could I please do a take over on October 15th!

Laura, it’s all yours! I’m so curious about SDA Bocconi and what it’s like to get an MBA in Italy. Can’t wait to learn from you.


1st week in the books - @efreele you’re up!

Look forward to seeing and learning from you all…


I want to thank @efreele for being the first Ambassador to take over our Instagram! Vancouver looks amazing.

@anna_trusen you’re next, take us to Montreal…


Just want to thank @anna_trusen and @lily.trieu for sharing a week of their b-school life!


I hope you’re ready for a great week of pictures and stories from NYU and around New York City.
