Last month I attended a Six Sigma Workshop during lunch with Professor Peg Pennington. It was about an hour and students with non-operating majors were encouraged to attend. I had my Matching Supply and Demand class with Professor Hill yesterday -- boy was I glad I had that ops review a few weeks before! Professor Hill's class will focus on different things than what we discussed during lunch, but the workshop was the perfect jolt back to the "ops world".
In less than 72 hours I will be walking into Global Environment of Business and starting my second semester of my MBA program. I will be back in a (hectic/coffee-driven) routine of classes, interviews, homework, reading, study-groups, meetings, happy-hours, and more. I can't wait!
One of the sweetest compliments a blogger can receive is someone emailing them and commenting on a blog - and then continuing to ask questions! It truly makes a writer feel like they are touching on meaningful topics and making a difference...no matter how small! So to that person, thank you very much! Moving forward with that idea, I was recently asked in an email: What do you WEAR to business school?!?
Or should it be "Week Three??" This spring quarter is starting off with a bang and without a nice, slow lead-in. No syllabus days, no easy transition back from our spring break. This quarter has been go go go and I am not mad about it. We are in core classes now (no more intro courses, hence no more syllabus days) and the workload and course material is intense. But with the increased rigor comes increased reward and satisfaction. My fellow Cohort members have already talked about Staffing and Econ, so I'll be brief about them:
Hello everyone, long time no see! Actually this was quite possibly the shortest winter break I can remember of my academic career, but it still feels like it’s been awhile since I “blogged.” We are already into our second week of the winter quarter, and it looks like it will be a great quarter of challenging, yet very worthwhile courses. This quarter I have four classes, and I figured I’d give a brief explanation of those courses since a lot of potential students read this blog and might find it interesting to hear what options they may have in the future…
