Last week I had the opportunity to attend the Cornell Johnson School EMBA information session at the Cornell Club in Midtown.
Recently I’ve been assessing my standing in my career, and I’ve been able to point out weaknesses that I need to address. I’ve been blessed to have a phenomenal undergraduate experience at Loyola College in Maryland. Upon graduating with a BA in Psychology I quickly determined that I needed to enhance my education in business. I then attended NYU’s School of Continuing and Professional Studies – receiving an MS in Direct Marketing by the time I was 24 years old. I had laser focus and determination to succeed, but little or no on the job experience. I’m going to be 34 years old in February, and after pushed myself in my career, I’m at a point where I am so thirsty for knowledge that I need more. More direction – more structure, and more information. I continue to devour business books, (both audio and print)…but I find that it’s just not enough. The interactive industry moves much too fast to become complacent. I’m more motivated to create something worthwhile now than ever before. I know that I have so much to learn, and I see no other institution better to provide that path than Cornell University.
I’m hoping to gain acceptance into the program for the July session. This program is highly unique with a true weekend format. This provides the ability to learn, and not have the program cut into your work schedule whatsoever.
