As of tomorrow (Friday), I have exactly one week to go until I finish my MBA.
Why am I telling you this? Well, just so as you know that I may be a bit hard to catch over the coming seven days & not as responsive as I'd like to be as I finally climb the mountain I first stepped onto back on July 2nd, 2002.
After 6 years, 8 exams, 9 courses, 28 assignments & an unimaginable amount of readings, case-studies & workshops, I'm hoping that:
a) I remember what a social life is supposed to look like
b) I'll be able to see my feet again after doing exactly zero exercise this year
c) My friends will forgive me for constantly saying no, and,
d) That'll all be worth it
Of this last point I have no doubt & so if any of you are considering going back to school or finally getting that degree - then why not give it a shot. What have you got to lose (apart from your sanity, spare cash, well-being & waistline... 🙂
Cheers & wish me luck with my Final Project (written, co-incidentally, as a critique / re-imagining of Microsoft's SMB channel strategy).
