Finally got my diploma. I wasn't all that surprised that it took a few months to get. After all, it took me 19 years to get it. My timing may or may not be unfortunate. The job market is tightening, and I don't think that's going to help Kentucky and Tennessee that much. Relocation may be in order; I haven't looked into it that much yet because I still love what I'm doing now. I'm undecided. At any rate, here's what fifteen grand worth of paper, and an eighteen dollar frame with a crappy mat looks like.
I have yet to make a decision on pursuit of an MBA. I think I need to do a serious hard look at my prospects and go from there. I think an MBA program may actually teach me something I don't know. Most of my bachelor's degree was made up of skills I already had and things I already knew. It was by no means a waste of time, but having about a dozen years of management experience, I can say with certainty that it didn't prepare me to manage a business. I guess that's proof that education without experience isn't that useful. Besides, you don't get free stuff from vendors at school.
