    5 is a good push... hopefully you get lucky. I would be finding a backup though...

    I took a fall course where someone was offering cash to anyone who would drop the course, I should have taken her up it was a terrible course.

    My backup is drop MGST 715 and hit up Japan lol

    For the wilderness retreat, do you have to camp with those fools or can you just post up at the delta and show up from 9-5?

    Thanks Ickyflex. Waitlisted for indigenous studies. Do the advisors usually get you through? Didn't think I'd have to worry about registration as a graduate student, but UofC is such a fucking joke it clearly is a problem.
    I've gone from about a waitlist of 7 to getting into the class a few weeks in advance!

    Just be prepared to hear a lot of soapbox discussions on Indigenous people from the TA. Literally extended Friday class last semester from 5pm - 6pm while we were in Kananaskis to talk about how disadvantaged people are and half the class just started getting up and leaving lol.

    Ah that does not sound like it would be worth the credits lol.

    Anybody taken OPMA with Stoletova? I cannot understand 80% of what she's saying, it's a good thing I'm familiar with the subject matter...

    Really disappointed by the course offerings for spring and summer. They really dont offer much of value. That wilderness study that everyone seems to want to go to seems like a massive waste of time and money to me. Would rather have some heding/A&D or tech based courses...

    I cant stand most MBA's, especially the daytimes, so I have a hard time attending events.

    So no.

    Because, like it or not, my job requires pretty rigorous business and financial acumen beyond “engineering” per se. I feel like I would like a more solid basis in business and finance so I at least have some level of confidence in what I am doing professionally. Moreover, more and more having an MBA, and the tools it provides you, in your background is becoming requisite for the kinds of roles and organizations I am interested in.

    It not all about wine mixers and debates, and I don’t see my cohort as mere tools to help me get ahead in life. Those are the kind of people I can’t stand.

    I can say my mere enrollment in the program are what got me in the door for my past 2 jobs, it is still a degree with value.

    I think the same thing.... How the heck is Indigenous Studies, Wilderness Retreat, and to a lesser extent Mental Toughness credit courses in an MBA program? I understand having the MBA behind your name has value, but with how shitty you guys make it sound and how much of a money grab it appears be I don't see how it would make me want to hire you more based on those 3 letters behind your name.

    It's not as though people ask for transcripts when you have an MBA. Also, in defense of Mental Toughness that was actually an interesting class to understand and manage people with mental health issues. The biggest lessons trying to be taught in MBA is disregard your own biases and manage based on fact vs. what you believe.

    Nonetheless, I don't doubt at some point in time MBA becomes less valuable as 3 letters in the same fashion that a BCOMM has no credential anymore. To me it's the approach of what can I do to be more competitive in a competitive job market. Crushed my MBA and now moving to a new role new company at a more senior position.

    The argument should be, would you pay $20K and grind out 16 months of school to help you land a new role that pays you $20K more? What if the argument is you pay nothing, but the company sponsors it? Means to an end is the way I see it.

    Ah, good call. I won’t bother if none of the evening guys are going.

    As much as I hate the MBA program at u of c, it has already opened the door to new opportunities for me if I wanted to pursue them. I’ve had 2 very good summer positions offered to me with oil and gas giants in Calgary that I would of never had a chance with before with my undergrad degree and background in construction. It never hurts to upgrade your schooling, and the MBA is a great way to set a foundation to climb into senior roles or make a career change.

    I don’t think I have anything anymore, mine were all hand written and borderline illegible.

    Who is your instructor?
