Classmate Spotlight: Avi

I’ve posted about my classmate Avi before (and here and here) but it’s about time he gets a whole post to himself!

When I first met Avi, he was campaigning for the position of Class Rep. This is a big job as he (along with one other rep) is responsible for (from the official class rep guide):

  1. acting as a conduit from our class to the administration and faculty
  2. represent our class for the GBC (Graduate Business Council)
  3. communicate to our class on behalf of the PSO (Program Services Office) and GBC

This can be a particularly demanding job as the Morning MBA program is still growing so student feedback is critical to the continual improvement. Avi and our other class rep Vladia worked hard to ensure that tutorials were scheduled during times that were convenient (thank you Survey Monkey!) and that deliverables for our various core courses were not all due at the same time (but sometimes that’s not always possible!)

In addition to his normal class rep duties, Avi has also used his many talents to conduct a class photo shoot and even design our very own class t-shirts! Check out the design options below and a photo of the final product (all designs property of avinashraj.com)

As you can see, Avi has been an integral part of the Morning MBA experience! He is also the director of design workshops for Rotman’s Business Design Club, part of the winning team for the 2010 Business Design Club competition and a finalist in the 2010 RBC Great Innovator challenge. How he finds time to actually do his MBA and work full-time beats me πŸ™‚

You can find out more about Avi on his website and in the Globe & Mail article. Thanks Avi for being such a great member of the Morning MBA 2012 cohort!

  2. Sorry to leave an unrelated comment, but I couldn’t find any contact information from you. My name is Emily Matthews, and I’m very interested in contributing to your site – I think I have some great ideas for posts that your readers would love. I’d love to discuss them further with you, and hope to hear from you soon.

      Thanks Emily – this is my personal blog about my experiences in the Rotman MBA program so I don’t accept guest posts unless they relate to my experience.
