So school is officially back underway and I’ve literally been buried in my studies. In the last 3 days alone I’ve read two books (over 500 pages) and written 11 pages of reports. Despite all of the reading and course work, I must say that I am very much enjoying grad school. My current course is Management Operations and it has been the best class of grad school so far. In addition to gaining a wealth of new knowledge and practices, I’ve also been able to gain deeper understanding, appreciation and history for concepts that had previous been introduced to me by others. I knew the “What” but now I better understand the “Why” and “How” of things, and I am looking forward to applying these concepts and methods to my business endeavors.
What I finding most interesting about grad school is that despite the amount of work it requires, it’s not all that hard. Though at the beginning of this graduate program, I almost feel as if this has been more beneficial to me than my undergraduate coursework. I really think that this should have been the level of learning and work endured during my undergrad years. Or maybe it’s just the maturity and experience experience I’ve had since my ACU days that has better prepared and equipped me for this journey of educational development. Regardless, I am really happy that I finally got myself back into school…and that I have a 4.0! Grad school has always been a goal of mine. Unfortunately because of my foot problems (4 breaks in 4 years and a surgery) I had to keep putting school off. Now I am finally back on track towards earning this Master’s degree, even more so looking forward to putting the information, concepts and methods I learned to work.
