Winter break = freedom

Classes are over, finals are finished, papers are complete… and I’m finally on winter break!  For the next three and a half weeks I am off.  This will give me plenty of time to reflect on the Q1 and make the necessary adjustments to be more successful in Q2.

Favorite class: Managerial Economics with Professor Campbell.

Least favorite class: Data Analysis.

Overall, this quarter was amazing.  I met a lot of great individuals and I really stretched myself by taking subjects in which I had no prior knowledge.   Accounting was tough, but I survived.  I hear Cost Accounting next quarter is even harder, so that should be fun.  My professional speaking class really improved my public speaking skills and I feel much more comfortable speaking in front of large audiences.

I’ll reflect more on Q1 a little later.  Now it is time to relax.  I should also have plenty of time to blog over the next three weeks… although I won’t have anything to blog about.  Stay tuned, I’m sure something will come to mind.


Projects and Finals

Once again everyone is busy at Fisher College of Business.  This is the last week of class so everything is wrapping up.  As a result, I had to give a presentation on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday of this week.

Monday – (Enhancing Professional Interchange) I gave a speech with three other individuals about the Thanksgiving holiday.  We were supposed to talk for 16 minutes and we hit 15:59.3 without any help from the professor.   Hopefully we get a few extra points for nailing the time exactly.

Tuesday – (Economics) My team gave a presentation on the compensation difference between the CEO of Aetna and the CEO of UnitedHealth.  We discussed CEO pay packages and their financial incentives.

Wednesday – (Organizational Behavior) My team gave a presentation on a leadership model that we developed based on OSU President Gordon Gee.  (I might have worn a bow tie for this presentation.)

As you can imagine, I’m definitely glad to have these projects behind me.  Now I can start studying for finals.  It all begins next Monday with Managerial Econ.  Tuesday is the Data Analysis final and Wednesday is the Accounting final.  It should be a fun three days.

I can’t wait until Wednesday afternoon…
