I love all 4 of my classes this quarter, but I want to bring your attention to this particular one - AMIS 824 Corporate Finance. This class is unique in many ways. To start off, in the introduction email Professor Dave Williams sent to the class, he specifically mentioned that we won't be doing any journal entries, T-accounts, or cite FASB statements. But wait a second, I thought this is an accounting class??? (AMIS stands for Accounting & Management Information System)
I just finished my second night of class and now that school is in full swing I have had to sketch out my calendar for the next 10 weeks. In October, I have a ton of events that I have tickets for and thus I have had to plan ahead. Among those events are concerts, out of town football games and the local Italian Festival which you'll hear all about in my blog over the next few weeks. Anyway, what I guess I am trying to say is that time management is really, really important.
Within the last 7 days, exactly, many firsts have happened in my life. They are as follows:
One down...how many more to go?? And so this two-year journey starts... If you haven't realized yet, I am a first year, first quarter WPMBA student who is now juggling school and a very loaded work schedule. I meant to write something interesting during the weekend, but guess what?? EXACTLY!!! I spent most of the weekend trying to catch up (already!) with all of the reading material assigned for week 2!
The MLHR program requires many group projects and a lot of speaking in front of the class. Public speaking is something that I am terrified of. I don’t know why. There really is no logic behind being afraid of speaking in front of people. I keep trying to remind myself that I have done many other things in my life that are much more scary than public speaking, such as scuba diving. Possibly getting eaten by a shark or separated from my group at 100 feet while scuba diving should cause me more fear than speaking in front of a group of my peers. Well, that is not the case!
