Back to School!

Monday, November 1st, 2010

This week I will be at the New Brunswick campus of Rutger Business School. Rutgers’ Center for Management Development offers a “Mini MBA” program in digital media marketing. Classes meet Monday through Friday from 9:00 a.m. – 4:00 p.m. followed by evening sessions for participants in the program to collaborate on a capstone project. I had thought that I could keep up with all of my responsibilities this week, as I had done the extensive reading for the course in advance. This turns out to be unrealistic. When you factor in the commuting time to take two trains and a campus shuttle there and back, I am just barely able to keep up with returning messages, let alone daily blogging. So please excuse me while I go offline for a week! I am learning a great deal from the industry experts who teach the classes as well as from my classmates who represent diverse backgrounds. Continuing education is critical to small business growth. I am thrilled for this opportunity. I am happier still that I received a tuition grant for theĀ  program. But even at full cost, the program is a great investment in the business. Click here to learn more about the program.
