Later last week, our class of 40 MBA students went on a trip to the Avondale House, to participate in a day of team building exercises. We were not provided with any information for what the day would entail, so we were a bit nervous about what we were getting ourselves into.
Obstacles such as lowering a pole with 8 peoples’ index fingers touching the pole and constructing a mechanism to launch 4 corks into the air were the types of projects we struggled through. After a day of team building and bonding, our MBA class of 40 got a lot closer and built a great camaraderie that we will continue to build on throughout the year.
At the conclusion of the day we also got our team assignments for Term 1. My team includes Robin (German), Enda (Irish) and Aaron (Irish).
