Homemade MBA Update – Getting a ‘real’ MBA!

Hello fellow DIY MBA-ers out there,

It’s been a minute or two since I posted an update to the site, so I figured I would catch up with you all really quick.

The main reason for the delay is that I’ve been hard at work…on my MBA.  That’s right, I’ve gone to the dark side (are we calling conventional MBAs the dark side?) and embarked on a real-life, brick-and-mortar, accredited MBA program.

It has been a very interesting experience, and I have a lot to say about it when I get more time.  However, time is something I don’t have very much of at the moment, as I am working full time and getting my MBA part-time in the evenings and weekends.  It’s a pretty significant workload right now, but I’m more than half-way through the program so I can see the light at the end of the tunnel.

It’s worth noting that much of my real MBA experience is online, or at least has an online component to it. I think this will make for a nice comparison of MOOC MBA classes vs. official MBA classes that have MOOC-like features including online lectures, discussion boards, and other content.

So stay tuned, my fellow MBA hackers, as you will now have access to an MBA insider who has “been there and done that” on the MOOC MBA side of the house as well.  This should be a fun comparison.

But for now, I need to go study.
