My MBA Status Update (17th December, 2011):

Courses completed by me already so far:
  1. Marketing
  2. Global Marketing
  3. Accounting
  4. Economics
  5. Human Resources
  6. Strategy
  7. Business Law, CSR (Corporate Social Responsibility), Ethics
  8. Research & Communication
  9. International Entrepreneurship
(I had to cut my Summer term midway due to an urgent personal situation that I had to attend to, in India. Otherwise, I would have had 2 more courses under my belt, by now. But I am glad I am back).

Courses I shall take soon (to graduate):
  1. Logistics & Supply Chain Management
  2. Finance
  3. Managerial Accounting & Finance
  4. Healthcare Policy Management
  5. Consulting
  6. Major Research Paper +  Internship (or job)
I hope to complete most of these by April and get into a job or internship by May, 2012. 
    Additional courses I wish to take, out of my own interest, even after graduation:
    1. Project Management course + CAPM test.
    2. Operations Management
    3. Brand Management
    4. Lean, Six Sigma, Kaizen, TPS
    5. Customer Service / Relations Management
    6. Statistics
    7. Negotiations & Conflict Management
    8. International Strategic Challenges
    9. Social Media
    10. And more...
    What I have in mind is this - Even after graduating with an MBA, if I continue to live in the Toronto area, I shall return to school to take 1 or 2 courses every term, on my own initiative. I love learning so much that I would love to get abundant knowledge and empower myself to become an excellent Business Manager. This is the plan for now. Will see how things turn out :)

    Regarding job hunt, I had planned to start a job in January earlier. But now, I have decided to postpone job till April end or May 2012. I plan to complete all my courses on a full time basis by April - so that my studies do not interfere with my job and my job does not interfere with my studies...
