Happy holidays from Madrid.

Quick update for you–The International Executive MBA (English/Online) Nov class is on a “virtual” holiday period (whose timing could not have been better).. the break is legitimate, but there are some “underground studies” taking place.  After almost 6 weeks of in-class and on-line studies, we have the opportunity now to gather our thoughts, rest, take on other tasks we’ve postponed, and to prepare for an early return to the books in January. For most of us, it’s a well deserved break to catch up with family and friends while reducing (but not eliminating) pending assignments and group projects. We are also reviewing topics that flew by us earlier; the chance to re-look is valuable.

One year to go from today until graduation. Not a bad milestone, all things considered…

We’ve applied the group approach to the case study method so far and our methods are far from perfect; again, the holiday allows each group to adjust their workload and distribution, timing, and preparation of work. The desired effect is obvious from the start—the subject  matter experts are often in your own group, and the sharing of experiences and perspectives is amazing.

We’ve also launched into the entrepreneurial portion of the program and business plans are beginning to take shape (in varying degrees).

No question, our dollar/euro/yen/pound/sea shell/wompum are well invested to date. We are definitely getting what we paid for. It’s an amazing ride.

Have a safe holiday, all the best from Madrid.

(Finish that application packet!)
