For those of you that follow this site, you might have noticed that I haven’t posted my usual Progress Reports for the last few weeks. This is because, save a few cosmetic changes to the website, I haven’t had much to do on my homemade MBA project the last few weeks. But that’s about to change…
Although it’s not a “Progress Report”, in the spirit of the currently ongoing NFL Playoffs let’s call this the “Kick-off” of my second semester of my homemade MBA. Yesterday, the first Week of material was released for Critical Perspectives on Management from IE Business School, so I can finally dive in to some new content. I watched the video-introduction to the class on Saturday, and this class looks like it will be great.
Just for fun, here is an updated Gantt chart:
As this is my only class for the moment, there isn’t the big class-by-class breakdown that I had a few months ago in my “first semester” of my homemade MBA project. Thad said, here’s a line or two about what we did this week:
- Critical Perspectives on Management: watched the introductory video, read through the course syllabus, and started to work on Week one. This looks like it will be a very well-produced class. I’ll get into more details on a First Impressions post once I have gone through the Week 1 material.
I’m looking forward to getting back in the swing of things on Coursera and on my Homemade MBA project. This semester should be a bit more enjoyable, as I can focus on one class at a time for a change. I hope that gives me some time to be a bit more thorough in my review posts, as well as more time to soak up the course material.
For those of you also taking Critical Perspectives on Management, good luck!
