    MBA Degree Archives:

    You know you’ve just finished a statistics class when certain phrases start to creep into your conversation. And, you know you’ve been married to an engineer when certain thoughts creep into your head. A few humorous examples that make me think I’ve got math brain? Take a look: During rehearsal this weekend, the backstage area [...]

    Maybe I’m just frustrated at my poor performance on my Stats exam, but several people I’ve talked to agree that the professor has a high threshold for his grade inputs. I’ve talked before about the discrepancies between academia and the real world, but I’m wondering if we’re all correct that this scale seems a little [...]

    I’ve got my first statistics test this evening, and I’ve been pretty stressed out about it for the last week. If you remember, I’m not a numbers person! However, attending a study sessions with my fellow classmates yesterday afternoon actually made me feel much more confident in my ability to do ok (note, not AWESOME, [...]

    I had coffee with a friend the other night, and we started discussing college readiness and testing. She teaches AP US History at a local high school, and she said the standardized testing requirements are killing her opportunity to teach and test in a way that will prepare her students for college. Going back for [...]

    School officially starts on Wednesday, but since I’m taking classes on Monday and Tuesday nights, I get a few extra days off! It’s been a wonderful 3 week summer break, filled with time at the gym, time with my family and friends, and adventures with my husband. We attended “’til Midnight” at the Nasher Sculpture [...]

    I’m taking my Economics final tonight, and there will probably be a lot of questions on game theory, as my Professor really seems to like that subject. In the lecture notes, he’s got a hypothetical game involving studying for the exam. It’s a little ironic to be studying for the final while doing a practice [...]

    I’ve been on a data-gathering mission since I started my position, and now grades are up for my MBA mid-terms. In short, I’ve got numbers running out my ears! I’m probably the least numbers-conscious person you’ll ever meet (seriously, ask my husband about the calculus study incident where the book, pencil, and calculator somehow managed [...]

    I’ve been steadily working my way through the perils of transparency and credibility, and I’ll wrap it up today with a discussion on publishing “personal stuff” on my blog. This fear stems from the fact that people who are close to me sometimes read the site, and maybe I don’t want my real-life connections to [...]

    “Anything that can go wrong, will go wrong.” To be fair, the forthcoming situation isn’t really the best representation of Murphy’s Law, but my classmate mentioned it as an immediate reaction, so I figured it can’t be THAT far off base! I’ve mentioned before that MBA students dress much better than undergrad students, mainly as [...]

    Well, I’m officially posting my 100th post on the blog, and coming up on the two year anniversary of the launch! I know there are many more prolific bloggers out there, but 100 posts is pretty amazing to me. I’ve still got some drafts in queue, and it makes me feel good to know that [...]
