This is the beginning of the final term in my quest for the MBA degree. And it is arguably going to be the most intense in terms of the study load. Up until now throughout my part-time MBA program at George Washington University School of Business I have had 7.5 credits in each of my full Spring/Fall terms.
This Spring term I am going to have a record of 9 credits. Taking 9 credits in Spring term will allow me to complete my graduation requirements. Theoretically I could take just my regular 7.5 credits in Spring, participate in graduation ceremony in May, and then take final 1.5 credits in Summer term. However, the choice of electives in Summer is relatively smaller, and I was concerned I would not be able to find appropriate elective class worth just 1.5 credits.
Another aspect of intensity is that I am going to have just two classes in my first module, and then four classes in the second module. So far, the most I had during one module was three classes. So it is going to be an interesting experience, I sure hope it is survivable :-).
The classes I have registered for my final MBA term are:
- Strategy Formulation and Implementation – MBA capstone course
- Global Corporate Responsibility – selective which will cover my two elective requirements: for international business, and sustainability
- Business Communications
- Organizational Factors/Process of Change
As I said, the term seems to be quite intense, but I am ready to make this final push and finally get my MBA degree. I hope I will still find the time to keep you posted on my progress. One thing I am quite sure I will keep uploading my write-ups for business cases analyses on a weekly basis. This way I will have all the cases I have accumulated so far published by the end of the school year. I am planning to have business cases published once a week on Sundays, so keep checking the Business School Cases section regularly for new additions.
