It was smooth sailing this week, with no major surprises or milestones. I kept pace with my current classes, and wrote my review of Wharton’s Intro to Financial Accounting.
This week’s Gantt chart:
Here is my class-by-class breakdown of last week:
- Operations: (Same as last week) I left this class as 99% complete because technically, I still have to submit 5 more peer evaluations for the last module of the Coursera Operations Project. However, these evaluations are not available until December 9, so I must wait until then to complete the last step.
- Marketing: I completed the Week 8 videos and took the third Quiz this week. I am nearing the finish line in this class, with only one week of videos and the final exam remaining. As far as I know, I will finish Marketing next week.
- Corporate Finance: I got a slight reprieve from Corporate Finance this week as we were back to the normal videos-and-a-homework routine after last week’s bout with that Case Study. I’m getting a little nervous for the Final Exam, though, as the videos this week are implying that it will be a timed exam, and that we’ll have to be on top of our game to finish the exam in the allotted time. TBD if the Coursera version will also be timed. Let’s hope it isn’t.
- Leadership through Emotional Intelligence: I spent some time working on Leadership this week, and was able to cover a lot of ground. I caught up with the discussion posts, “personal learning assignments”, quizzes, readings, and videos for Weeks 4, 5, and 6. I still am in the process of writing my “personal vision,” but I hope to finish it this week. This brings me back up to pace with this class, which I had been putting off for the last week or two.
This was a pretty calm week. Or, perhaps it just seemed that way in comparison to the workload of the Corporate Finance case last week? I am kind of dreading the Corporate Finance final exam next week. Who knows, maybe it won’t be that bad? I’ll let you know what I think next week. Also, next week I hope to write my review of Wharton’s Intro to Operations Management.
