"The brain is a wonderful organ. It starts working the moment you were born and doesn't stop until you get called for oral recitation." I got the line, which is a George Jessel quotation with a twist, from my friend Kristine Malabanan. And it perfectly sums up what happened yesterday during MBA 812: Managerial Economics class.
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!
