I saw lot of MBAs. Talked to a few. But most were busy dancing! There was loud music. It was a fun event. But it was not one of those well light quiet sessions. It was a night club type event, held at the C Lounge, in Toronto. I spent a few hours, exchanged business cards with a few MBAs. Spoke to some about topics of interest to me. It was good. As always, it is hard for me to meet people of exactly my wave length. I like be "all business, all the time". I like to eat, drink, talk and walk business, so to speak. But some of the people I meet do not absolutely want to talk about business / career / future when out at a party. Well, to each, his / her own! I have no problems with that. But I tell you one thing - I always feel guilty during such events. I feel that I should rather be with my books, in the library or in my room, studying! Doing something productive. Of course, networking is productive too. There is benefit in networking, but it is all about value versus cost! And how you perceive it.
