B-Schooled Podcast Episode #177: Lessons Learned From SBC Alums After Their First Year (Part One)


In this episode of B-Schooled, we sit down with an SBC alum, Ty, who just completed his first year at Darden and a summer internship with Bain & Company.

Ty comes from a somewhat untraditional background—with a focus on music and social change—and shares lots of great information about his experiences at Darden and his transition to the world of consulting, including:

• The best decision he made during his first year,
• Balancing his marriage and being a father while in school,
• One thing he would do differently about his first year,
• Suggestions for those wanting to make the most out of their internship experience,
• Tips for those wanting to break into consulting, and
• Advice about taking risks.

This podcast is a must for anyone interested in making the most out of their first year, anyone applying with an untraditional background, or anyone transitioning into the world of consulting.
