After my completing my first FULL week of Winter quarter classes, its time to update the world on my thoughts and expectations for Winter Quarter 2011. Even though I had to drink the reality kool-aid like every other returning student, I still think there are parts of me that are on winter break.
This quarter, I was fortunate to get a few of my required core classes waived. Because of this, I have been able to take a couple of classes that suit what I like in class material. One of the classes I am taking is BUS 846 Talent Management. I am really excited to be in this class because I wanted to learn more about the important of managing and retaining your organization’s talent. This is an area that I’ve found that I have become more passionate about the last couple of years and, as of now, I am very impressed with the course content and our classroom discussions. I recommend taking this class if it fits in your schedule. It is definitely worth it.
I am finding that I will be doing a lot more reading and group projects than I did last quarter. Crazy enough, I do enjoy reading. I have found that the majority of my books are intriguing reads and keep me captivated which is a good thing. Hopefully, I can keep up with the reading material because it sure can seem overwhelming at times. For group projects, I am excited to work with different students from other programs being offered at Fisher. It will be great to branch out and meet other fellow grad students.
After the completion of my first quarter with the MLHR program, I can say that my expectations have been more than met and exceeded. I have thoroughly enjoyed all of my instructors and have learned a great deal from each of them. As far as Winter quarter is concerned, I hoping for that same type of experience. I realize that my experience depends a lot on my own participation and engagement and I am glad I made the most of that opportunity.
Lets make 2011 a great year! Time to Read!
