MBET – The Final Term Begins

May 7th, 2007 · 1 Comment

Alright, alright… it has been a while since my last post. Wow – almost a month!! Since then, we have finished up Term 2 of MBET, I took a vacation to Florida, and we are now starting the third and final term!!

The end of Term 2 was not as bad as Term 1, though much more prolonged. At the end of first term, we had five assignments due in a week. With second term, classes seemed to drag out into mid-April, and we didn’t finish all our assignments until April 23rd. So much for having most of April off!!

I did take a nice break and headed down to Florida with my girlfriend for a conference she was attending. I got to sit by the pool, sip beer and work on my tan while she was off at meetings during the day, so it was a great break for me!!

Term 3 officially got underway late last week, but due to the Florida trip, it didn’t really start for me until today. Our schedule looks a little lighter, not nearly as much class, but I still think that things are going to get pretty busy in June and July. Everyone is also starting to think about their next steps, looking for jobs or trying to decide if they want to pursue their own ventures. I am still planning on giving it a go with HealthSpoke full-time when I am finished! Should be exciting times!!

More to come…

    i am thinking of joining the mbet program. However, I currently study in the UK and i’m really curious how you guys work on the program.

    If i compare it to my current degree, there are 10 modules plus the group dissertation is it? how many hours do you spend roughly doing work (in and out of class) a week?

    Do you get much time off?

    Is waterloo a cool place to live ?

    I’m still young at 22, any place you could suggest i can stay?
