Time For Change

Well, I've just taken the big plunge. I've signed a contract with a prestigious university for a Master's of Business Administration (MBA) program. It is a condensed program designed for those of us who work, but they say that it will still take me about 20 hours per week to get through it. That is every week for the next 14 months.

My first class is Financial Accounting, and the book is dense to say the least. I have to get through 4 chapters by Friday.

I'm guessing that this endeavor is going to seriously cut into my blogging time. I'm going to try to get posts up now and then, but I fear the consistency of my blogging is bound to suffer. What's worse is that my consistency of visiting all of your sites is probably going to suffer even more.

Perhaps it won't suffer as much as I think, but I feel it is better to put out the disclaimer ahead of time just in case.


  • If you're anything like me you'll be able to visit, just not comment as much as you'd like to. Good luck with school!

  • You seem very adept at business and math, so good luck, but I don't think you need it. As for me, since I don't have my own blog, you won't be missing me. I find just visitng a few blogs and occasionally leaving comments keeps me busy enough, so I'll be stopping by to visit and if you don't post quite as much, maybe I'll have a little more time to get my own work done. lol

  • praguetwin,

    For whatever it's worth, starting an MBA with Financial Accouting is both common and a jump into the cold deep end of the pool.

    Oh, the fun you will have. After Financial Accounting, however, is smoother sailing.

  • I'm think you're right about the demand on your time school will have. My sister earned a second MA degree in one of those condensed programs (while working full-time) and she literally functioned like a zombie during that time. Forget about sleep, forget about relationships, and forget about holidays, but don't forget to pay your bills!

    It will be worth it in the end though and that's all that matters. Good luck!

    Time for sleep.

  • Good luck, praguetwin. Don't forget to take time out to recharge now and then.

  • When you complete the program, what doors will have opened, and what will you persue?

  • That's an ambitious schedule you're taking on. Good luck with everything.

    I'll look forward to your future posts and visits. If they become less common, we'll just appreciate them all the more :)

  • Good Luck with that. It's never to late for schooling and I'd be willing to be you'll do well.

  • Hey...good for you. Much luck with the studies.

    Don't listen to no_slappz. I waited quite some time after my bachelors to get my master's and loved every minute of it. There's something to be said for commitment.
