I won a scholarship to get my MBA! I found out earlier this month, but realized I haven't blogged about it. Oops.
Here is an article about the program: http://www.csmonitor.com/2008/0509/p01s02-usgn.html
Before I wrote my essay on why I wanted to continue my education and how it would change my life, I had to choose the school I wanted to attend from the ones listed in the article above. I chose AIU - more specifically http://www.aiuonline.edu - because they offer a 10 month MBA, which I had never even heard of before.
Classes start June 9th and I will graduate April 26, 2009, if all goes well. Hubby & I have both considered getting our MBA's in the past, but he is currently working on his CFP license and has completed other needed licenses for his financial practices. I put it off for financial reasons - plus having our son. The planets aligned this month though, and I know this is part of God's plan for my life.
Part of the acceptance package was that I agree to let them use my story for publicity for the school and for Project Working Mom. See more about them here: http://www.elearners.com/projectworkingmom/
