It took two years to finally hoist the Cohort Cup Trophy and this year Cohort D was able to enjoy victory. As you probably know, as full time students at BU you are split into three cohorts which consist of approximately 50 students. Those 50 students become your close friends and teammates as you navigate your way as a first year MBA. Too add to the friendly competition, competitions and networking events are hosted by the Cohort Cup Committee pitting cohorts against each other in sports, trivia, and other friendly competition.
The year comes to an end with the annual talent show where you get to see entire cohorts perform dances and songs, as well as other members of your class display talent you never knew existed. The show is judged by professors picked by each cohort to add some interesting allegiances into the mix.
Last year…it was a battle to the end with Cohort C and Cohort D taking every other competition and C finally squeezing out enough points to take the lead and win the cup. Needless to say, Cohort D was slightly bitter and with motivated first and second years, D remained in the lead the much of the year. It was a competition that brought us together as classmates. It was a nice distraction and much needed break from the rigors of a full time MBA.
