It has been a little over a month now since I have started on the path to obtaining my MBA. I knew I wanted to get my MBA even before I received my undergraduate degree four years ago from St. Edward’s University.
I was the first person in my family to graduate from college, and I knew when I walked across that stage in 2008 that my journey would not end there. After years of moving around from place to place, and after years of much research on what university would fit me, I finally decided on Concordia University in Austin, Texas. Their MBA program had everything that I was looking for including: a cohort style set-up, classes one night a week, two-year track, strong core values, spectacular professors and staff, and most importantly the focus on helping me to develop into a better leader.
I chose for my concentration to be in organizational leadership. Over the past year and a half working with SOS Leadership, I have come to realize how important it is to answer the call to leadership. I know that I am nowhere near reaching my full leadership potential, either professionally or personally. I understand that I need to continue to invest in myself, and that is why I decided to take on this new adventure, despite how busy my life already is.
I know this is going to be challenging, but it is necessary for me to become who I desire to be. A better husband, a better father, a better friend, a better employee, a better leader! I am looking forward to the exciting and new opportunities that will come my way in the future. I look forward to keeping everyone posted on my journey over the course of the next two years. Check back every month as I blog about my journey through the Concordia MBA program.
