When you select an MBA program, you are not just choosing your learning environment, but are also making a commitment to a community. Each Thursday, we offer a window into life “beyond the MBA classroom” at a top business school.
Started in 1991, FuquaVision is a popular sketch comedy show produced each term at Duke University’s Fuqua School of Business by the school’s students. Although FuquaVision is based on life at the school, the show’s humor is designed to appeal to a general audience, and the production airs both on the university television station and online. The show is described on its Web site as “part Saturday Night Live, part video yearbook.” On the Fuqua Daytime MBA Student Blog, one of the club’s 2012 co-presidents says she was drawn in by “FuquaVision’s ability to really tap into your creativity and create something substantial,” adding, “I think that’s what entices a majority of our members—they have a humorous idea that they want to share with our peers and before they know it, they’re immersed in the world of FuquaVision.” Open pitch sessions are held at the beginning of each term in which all students of the Daytime MBA program are encouraged to participate and produce skits.
