A Gantt Chart showing my progress on my Homemade MBA as of Feb. 2, 2014

This week I made it through two weeks of material in Critical Perspectives on Management.  I’m happy to report that the course material is still very high quality, with very well-made video lectures.  I’m really impressed with the editing touches IE Business School (and/or Prof. Rolf Strom-Olsen) has made for this class.   The Gantt …
