One of my last steps for my year abroad is to apply for a visa. It is a lot of paperwork, and I am going to have a personal interview at the embassy, which I arranged today. So the next days I’m going to collect all the informations for the forms, going to a photographer and pay the fees. The whole procedure for the non-immigrant visa application can be read here.

Courses and Emory E-Mail Address
The last days I got my courses and an Emory e-mail address assigned. I got almost all courses for which I subscribed. Sadly, I didn’t get the most important one, which is Strategic Management. But there is still a chance to get into this class in the Add/Drop/Swap-Week – the first week of the semester. Anyway, at this time I’m subscribed at the following courses:
- Marketing Strategy (Marketing)
- Ideation (Marketing)
- Negotiations (Organization and Management)
- Consulting (Organization and Management)
- Leading and Managing Change (Organization and Management)
- Business Communications (Communication)
I have to decide on four courses which is the usual workload of the students at this university. So I’m going to drop two or three of them–depending on the Strategic Management course…
Another Birthday Present
At the class reunion yesterday, I got the birthday present from the two Dominiks and Christian. It is a funny and nice present: a Georgia license plate clock. Thank you guys!
Certificate of Eligibility
Yesterday morning, happily I received the Certificate of Eligibility! I got this form already about a week ago, but accidentally there was a mistake with the dates. On Monday I’m going to make an appointment with the US embassy in Vienna, which is obligatory to get a visa.
Received the Emory Student ID
A few minutes ago I received an email with my Emory Student ID. Next steps are to review the class schedule and to get familiar with the information systems.
Last Friday, June 6th, Christina and I visited the 111th Concordiaball. We attended the opening ceremony. The ball is arranged by the Viennese journalist’s club Concordia, the world oldest journalist’s club. The ball took place in the very awesome premises of the Viennese City Hall. It was moderated by Barbara Rett. The opening ceremony was choreographed by Prof. Klaus Mühlsiegl, who is well known as the choreographer of the Viennese Opera Ball opening ceremonies. We enjoyed another great ball night until the end at 5am. View our pictures!
