Hear what students say about their experience at Post University
I chose Post for my MBA because I loved my first experience at Post. It such a good fit for my personality so when the opportunity presented itself for the MBA I didnâ€™t even hesitate to apply. It was a no-brainer.
Well, first of all, I had to. Iâ€™m married with two small children. I learned time management skills really quickly. I just made sure I logged in to the class as soon as possible and looked at the syllabus so I knew what to expect. I tried to stay ahead of everything. It took me 2-3 courses to get used to the system.
Yes, absolutely. I felt that the MBA degree would be the most well-rounded degree. Iâ€™ve always been an entrepreneur at heart so I felt as though some formal training would help shape that. I want o launch my own business and this program helped me put the brakes on what I was working on and start it the right way. I was a little skeptical about online because I wasnâ€™t sure the â€śonline schoolsâ€ť really existed, but I knew Post was real so thatâ€™s another reason I picked it.
Yes. I think I went into the program with my own picture of what I thought it would be like. My perception was that an online program was going to be easier. I thought it would be less work, but it really wasnâ€™t. The caliber of the professors couldnâ€™t be any better. They challenge you at every step and even when you think they would let you go on something, theyâ€™re expectations were very high. I had so many resources that I didnâ€™t even know existed. The professorsâ€™ experience was great and they were very professional and challenging, but they were human and said that they were learning from me too. I didnâ€™t expect any of that. I knew the reputation was good, but I didnâ€™t expect it to be as great as it was. It was even better than I thought.
It has definitely changed the way I think. I think my focus is different and I consider more things before I make a decision or draw a conclusion. I realize that there is so much more involved. My professors challenged all my ideas and made me think it through. They always asked me if the changes I was proposing were feasible. I also lacked managerial skills and the project management course showed me that I was missing the discipline to manage the time, the people and the materials, and to understand how much of everything you need. I feel like Iâ€™ve grown so much.
Oh yeah, there were times when I would come to work the next day and offer something I learned in class. We would try things and they would work. It was awesome.
Was there any one concept or discussion that changed the way you view the world/workplace?
I would say that the program really drove some things home that I had a hunch about -- the fact that things are all connected so that each decision you make has an impact on something else. Thereâ€™s no cut and dried answer to most things.
I think made some really good, solid connections. I think the bond is really tight-knit and close -- weâ€™re a family. It was a very diverse groupâ€”from different parts of the country and from different countries and we all learned from each other. You got something from everybody.
Prepare to work hard, but donâ€™t let that fact discourage you from moving forward with it. One mistake I made is that in the earlier courses I went in alone and then I realized that I should ask some questions and call my professors when I needed help. Once I did that, it made such a difference. Donâ€™t wait to communicate.
I have already.
