    As of this weekend, I'm officially registered and enrolled in an MBA program! After 6 months of nothing, waiting on my BS in Management Studies to be conferred, I am back in school on the Post 9/11 GI Bill.

    For my first term I'll be taking

    UCSP 611A - Introduction to Graduate Library Research Skills
    COMM 600 - Academic Writing for Graduate Students
    AMBA 600 - MBA Fundamentals

    I'm so glad to be able to start closing out this milestone in my life!

    I'd be lying if I pretended to understand everything in the OP, but it sounds like a good path, so congrats on the milestone :)

    Congrats, your taking 3 MBA classes, don't you think its a lot?

    You have to do a lot writing, hopefully you know that.

    You might want to scale back a little after those three classes. Its a lot of work

    I'm in a MBA with a concentration in Financial Analysis/Accounting and I'm taking one class at a time.

    I won't dare take three classes at a time.

    Thanks everyone!

    The UCSP class is basically a LIBS class and is required within the first 6 hours, it's worth 0 hours, so that kinda sucks. The AMBA 600 class is also required, it's the MBA prerequisite course and upon completion, enrolls me into the actual MBA program. It's only worth 3 hours. The COMM class is purely so I hit 6 hours this term (also only worth 3 hours), so I get full GI Bill entitlements.

    After the program starts, it's on autopilot - one 6 hour class a term.
