What have I gotten myself into…on top of moving and getting a new job, I have decided to go back to school for my MBA.
CRAZY RIGHT!?!?! I mean when you walked across the stage and collected your college degree, homework and tests were supposed to be a thing of the past…right? Nope not in today’s reality!
In the field I work in (Marketing), Master’s Degrees are quickly becoming a requirement in order to get promoted or even get hired. So, in order to stay competitive I took the plunge back into the life of a college student, getting my MBA.
It is amazing how quickly you forget how to take notes or do your homework efficiently while maximizing your grade (I swear I used to have a system for that). I also apparently put up a mental block to the amount of reading that is required (okay so maybe I just didn’t do it in undergrad and that’s why I don’t remember)! While there are certainly some growing pains getting used to the course work again, it is incorporating it into my everyday life that is proving to be the real challenge.
I mean I am settled into my “adult” life and have a routine, where am I supposed to fit all this in at? Its like trying to teach an old dog new tricks.
Have any of you gone back to school and juggled a full-time job? Any advice you can offer?
