Since business school students are usually older than those in other graduate programs, they might be in serious relationships before heading to school — and their MBA program might require them to move to another state, or even another country! Break-ups during MBA programs are so common that there’s a term for the avalanche of post-Thanksgiving dumpings: “The Turkey Drop”.
If you’re in this boat, what should you do? Assume that the demands of an MBA program will be too much, and thus pre-emptively break up to spare everyone a lot of heartache? Or stay together and try to make it work? And if so… well, HOW can you make it work? In this episode, John, Caroline, and Maria tackle these topics of the heart.
