It’s the night before my first day of business school and I don’t know how to describe my feelings. Does “reluctant anticipation” make sense to anyone?
Don’t get me wrong… I am definitely excited about the start of classes. This is something I have wanted to do for a long time. Earning my MBA from Fisher College will provide me the business skills necessary to think both critically and strategically about leadership and management. What more could I ask, right?
Well, I am reluctant to begin this journey because for the first time in my life I am behind on schoolwork before classes have officially begun. You might be wondering, “How is it possible to be behind in something that hasn’t actually started?” Don’t worry, this is not some theoretical question. (Remember, my personality is ESTP… theories and conceptual problems bore me.) The answer is really quite simple: three out of my five classes have work due on the first day of class.
- *MBA 800: Financial Accounting & Reporting
- *MBA 812: Managerial Economics
- MBA 825: Enhancing Professional Interchange
- MBA 860: Organizational Behavior & Teamwork
- *MBA 870: Data Analysis for Managers
The good news is that I am almost finished with my homework and I will be ready to dive into my MBA experience head first. Wish me luck.
