This one’s just a very quick post to finalise my progress on my postgraduate studies. Which is to say:
I PASSED MY MBA WITH COMMENDATION!
Hooray! Thank goodness for that! If there’s one lesson learned, it’s that I’m done with academia. Not that all the hard work wasn’t worth it, of course it was, and if you’re looking to choose a university yourself for business studies then definitely have a look at what the University of Hertfordshire has on offer. I’ve made some great friends, and plenty of new colleagues with whom I am certain to collaborate in the future.
So, there are three more letters that I can add to my name. Excellent. Now to order some new business cards!
Well, this is just a short and sweet post to celebrate that I HAVE FINISHED MY MBA DISSERTATION! WOO HOO!
It’s all handed in, and the results are now in the hands of the gods (so to speak). I started with all the best intentions to “do well”, but now at the end of the whole course I will be happy with just a pass!
*fingers firmly crossed*
What’s also excellent, is that I will be able to start writing about some of the other (hugely wide range of) subjects that I am interested in, and actually post on here more regularly. And, you know, go out places and see what the UK and the rest of the world has to offer outside of a classroom or office! That’s the plan anyway.
Until next time..
Throughout my years of study and work, I have come to a conclusion regarding how I pick up and learn new skills and subjects: the way subjects are taught in school or university, is not the way I actually learn. I don’t think I have ever been “taught” anything. If I want to learn something, then I go out and discover it for myself.
I’ve been told recently that I should avoid stressful situations, because stress causes migraines. That’s a very simplistic take on an extremely complex subject. I’m not sure that avoiding stress is even possible, or more realistically, should I? I may not get out of bed in the morning. Ever again.
This is just one of those “pet peeve” posts really. A soapbox moment, if you will…
Over the winter months I’ve had to do a fair amount of driving to and from work and university. Being in the UK over winter generally means that you’re driving in the pitch black both mornings and evenings. As a migraine sufferer I’ve always found it dazzling looking at oncoming headlights and bright tail lights for the hour-plus commute. Continue reading
Our results came out this afternoon for our exams taken just a few weeks ago in January. I was unsure how I had done, but happily I PASSED! (Does the Happy Dance!)
No re-takes for me at all so far! So, that means I have a stack of coursework and one exam for this last semester of classes, then I have to do my own project.. and then I’m done!
Roll on April 2014!
ACHIEVEMENT UNLOCKED: MBA 1.5 Year Milestone
Since the last time I posted a quick update, I quite literally haven’t stopped! I’m essentially doing 7 days per week, what with work work, university homework, business trips, classes.. etc. Consequently, I feel somewhat like the walking dead! I don’t know what is going on! Or what day it is. (What day is it? Anyone?!)
