Your Degree Online
My son just graduated from College with his BA in Marketing and International Business. I am so proud of him I cannot even explain how happy we are for him. He is so fortunate right now to have a couple really decent job offers for him making some good cash. Doing what he wants to do, he is so excited. He left yesterday in his suit and tie and awesome black dress shoes, all of which he purchased himself. He also worked full time his last year in college.
He lived in Mankato where he went to school which is about 2 1/2 hours from where we live. He would drive to the 'cities' every Friday morning around 3:00am and work a shift from 5:30am-5:30pm his brother also is working this shift. They work Friday, Saturday and Sunday. They work 36 hours and our paid for 40. It is a labor job as well. Then Justin was driving back to Mankato Sunday.
He learned a great deal from this position and is really excited to get a job where he is talking to people etc. He is already discussing getting his MBA and his next schooling options. I said what about taking classes online at your own pace? How about you get your MBA through an online degree curriculum. I was thinking I have seen so many different online colleges in the last ten years to help working people continue their education. When I was working our group had two people in it going to college online and working toward their MBA's, this may work for him.
2012 is looking like it is going to be a pretty great year for my kids and their education. They have so many opportunities online and off to explore.
