Homemade MBA Progress Report: December 1, 2013

Corporate Finance dominated my Homemade MBA effort this week (the case study was intense!), but I was able to complete the required materials for Marketing and Leadership as well.  I also spent a considerable amount of time on the Coursera discussion boards talking about my Homemade MBA project and comparing it to those of my …

Homemade MBA Progress Report: November 24, 2013

For the first time in a few weeks, I was back at home and back to my normal routine.  My normal routine, this week, happened to be chock-full of Coursera!  I made massive progress on my homemade MBA this week, and polished off not one, but two Coursera classes.   Thanks to a big effort …

Progress Report: November 17, 2013

This was my second week of business travel in a row.  I was in the UK from Tuesday – Saturday, and occupied with work-related meetings and evening events the entire time.  I am back home now, but I’m exhausted, and I only had today (Sunday) to work on my homemade MBA Coursera classes.   Being …

Progress Report: November 10, 2013

This week I was swamped with work, travel for work, and a touch of food poisoning.  Thus, I didn’t make the normal strides in my homemade MBA project.  Instead, I triaged my Coursera workload, and only did the bare minimum to avoid grade penalties.   I was able to meet the hard deadlines as required …

Progress Report: November 3, 2013

Wharton’s Intro to Corporate Finance and Case Western’s Inspiring Leadership through Emotional Intelligence made their first appearances this week, and I kept up with everything else.  I will go into detail in my First Impressions post for each of these new classes, but overall I think these are both very promising.   I was able …

Progress Report: October 27, 2013

This week, I kept pace with my current classes and decided to add a new course to my homemade MBA!  I’m about half-way through my original homemade MBA plan, and I hate to make a change this late in the game (let alone making more work for myself…), but I think this course will fill …

Progress Report: October 20, 2013

My first two homemade MBA Coursera courses are now complete!  I cranked out another solid week of work on my homemade MBA, and I feel like I have a lot to show for my effort.  This week, I finished Foundations of Business Strategy class as well as Entrepreneurship.  I also crossed the half-way point in …

Progress Report: October 13, 2013

I rocked out with Coursera this weekend, like all cool kids do.  I’m on the verge of finishing my first Homemade MBA course – maybe Monday or Tuesday.  Here’s my updated homemade MBA plan Gantt chart: I liked the organization of last week’s progress report, so I’m going to adopt it for my future updates.  …

Progress Report: October 8, 2013

This weekend I was quite industrious and made a lot of progress on Coursera.  However, I did have to sacrifice making my scheduled progress report this weekend, but that’s ok.  Here’s a quick recap of what I covered since my last update.   First, I updated my homemade MBA plan (see below) because one of …

Progress Report: September 30, 2013

Unfortunately, I didn’t make much progress with my homemade MBA this week.  I was able to meet all the course deadlines, but that’s all.  I had to use an hour or two of one night of my vacation to sneak in some Coursera, something I hope to avoid in the future.   There’s no need …
