Whether it’s for personal growth or career enhancement, everyone decides to continue their education for a particular reason. Deciding to go back to school is a major decision, as it requires taking on new expenses, juggling your other responsibilities, and sacrificing time to complete the program.
As the world was forced to close their doors this year, many people spent their quarantine looking to continue their education. The online learning environment, especially the WSU Online MBA program is flexible and challenging—the ideal structure for those continuing to quarantine.
Personally, I love to learn. I decided to start my MBA journey when I was given the opportunity through my company to go back to school, while still working full time. Success in the program meant remaining organized both in the office and in the program and working ahead of schedule on assignments.
I started the Online MBA program to complete the International Business concentration, but as time went on, I realized I also wanted to learn about Marketing and give myself the option of a potential career change in the future. Although it is difficult to juggle work, family, and school at the same time, continuing your education can open more doors and opportunities to help you climb the corporate ladder or to accomplish personal goals and better your own mind.
