No MBA for me this year…

Despite the great result on my GMAT, I will not enter the TIAS Part-Time MBA program this year 🙁 :(…my employer decided (quite unexpectedly) to give me NO SUPPORT for this study. The motivation given was not that constuctive, my conclusion from it is that the company apparently has no need for MBA-qualified personell. Fair enough…pity however that they were not able to bring me this message in an earlier stage.

I'm on my own on this one…unfortunately the time left before the class of 2006 starts (September 29th) is not enough to work out alternatives…

Yes, I *am* very disappointed; the MBA (specifically the Tias PTMBA program) would have been a great first step in achieving my (professional) ambitions and, in my humble opinion, could have been part of an important step the company needs to take (invest today for the success of tomorrow). Then again, MBA is not the magic word that makes all things better by itself, a lot of hard work is still required…not being able to start this year is not the best motivator, especially not considering the history behind it…but, it will not stop me to work on my future! 🙂
