As of last night I’ve had three classes, I’ve become friends with some of my classmates, and I’ve learned that I can make it through three hours of lecture after working all day. Most importantly, I’ve learned that my decision to become a Masters of Human Resources Management student at Fisher College of Business was most definitely a good one.
The last two weeks have been an exciting whirlwind. I decided to take the plunge as a MHRM graduate student after five years of working as an Account Executive in advertising and marketing. In May I was convinced that this was the program for me. On August 12, the day before our orientation, I had some nervous hesitations. For instance, I didn’t graduate with a business degree and it’d been a long time since I’d gone to class, had homework and studied for exams. Lastly, I knew no one in my program. However, I am so glad that I ignored these fears.
Fortunately, the first night of orientation proved that the MHRM program at Fisher College of Business is exactly what I wanted. My classmates are incredibly friendly, successful, and intelligent and even had the same insecurities as me on our first night. The first-year MHRM class is diverse in experiences but still united in our goal to become leaders in Human Resource Management. I know I will learn so much from them. The second-year class is amazing and ready to offer snippets of wisdom from everything they’ve learned and experienced in the program. The faculty at Fisher is outstanding. Class is interesting and engaging. I feel so fortunate to have such accomplished teachers.
So now after a week of class, lots of reading, learning my way around campus and even a class field trip to the Thirsty Scholar, I find myself smiling. I am so happy to be a first-year MHRM student.
