Progress Report: September 23, 2013

Intro to Financial Accounting, offered by Wharton, started this week, and I passed the half-way point in Darden’s Foundations of Business Strategy.  I must say I’m a bit disappointed in the quality of the Wharton Accounting class so far, but I’ll get into that in another post.


As you can see below, I’m still on track (aka, I haven’t yet fallen behind) at the moment:

Since both Intro to Accounting and Business Strategy only release lectures and quizzes/homework one week at a time, all I can do to get ahead at this point is to work on my final project in Business Strategy.  I’d say I’m half-way through it (recall, the final project is a written Strategic Analysis and set of recommendations on a company of my choice), with most of the research complete and a quarter of the writing complete.  I guess that’s about where I should be, considering we’re just starting Week 4 of a six-week class.


October 1st is when things get real.  On that ominous day, I go from two to six concurrent courses.  To try and ease the pain, I’m trying to complete my Strategy project this week.  That should mean I only really have five full-on courses to worry about, hoping that the last two weeks of Strategy aren’t too rough. 


They say a big part of a real MBA is time management. Well, we’ll see what homemade MBA progress I can squeeze in this week between work, a business trip to northern Norway, and four days in Spain.
