Useful Facts about MBA Degree



I do have plans to go back & get my Masters on day.
In library science.
For now, though I am raising my family. 
 
I thought this Guest Post would really bring home as to why it's important to get your MBA.
 

Earning your MBA in Colorado is a step toward a more satisfying job, better income, and an overall career growth. The graduates of MBA programs usually earn 50% more than they did before pursuing the degree. Here are some facts you should keep in mind if you decide to apply for an MBA.

Prior Education
While many people believe that to pursue an MBA one must have an undergraduate degree in business, this is not the case. MBA programs were originally established to meet the needs of working professionals, such as scientists and engineers, who were promoted into management roles without having prior leadership experience. An MBA degree would help them fill that gap and become successful in their new positions. Graduates of any discipline can apply to be an MBA student, be it psychology, history, or law.


School’s Ranking
Contrary to popular thinking, top-tiered schools are not the only ones worth getting your MBA degree from. The fact is, these schools receive a very large amount of applications, rejecting as many as 90% of those. While you can try applying to the school that is your first choice, it is worth to also send applications to several other less-known schools, the degree from which can be just as valuable. When choosing the schools you want to apply to, a good place to start is the Official MBA Guide. This database lists thousands of MBA programs around the world, allowing you to search the schools by rank, alphabetic order, region, or keyword.


Work Experience
Some MBA programs give preference to the applicants who have two to four years of experience in their fields of work. Others are willing to accept students who have just completed their undergraduate degrees and have done well on their GMAT tests. Before applying to get your MBA in Colorado, check the school’s requirements and see whether it accepts students of your experience level. Keep in mind that you are likely to get more practical knowledge from a school that accepts people with at least some prior work history. Class interaction with other students who have work experience can be as valuable as the theoretical knowledge you obtain from the books.

Smurfs: The Lost Village & Psst...a lightening fast Giveaway too!

Smurfs: The Lost Village is coming out April 7th.  That's this weekend.  
I don't know about you but I remember when the Smurfs first appeared on the scene.  Way back in the 80's...that's early 80's mind you.  I think I just gave away my age.  Yes, I am that old I remember the original gang.  I even had little Smurf toys.  One was a police officer.  That was because my dad was a police officer.
Enough reminiscing, I am so excited that the Smurfs have stood the test of time and the my child gets to experience them.  At 10 years old, he still likes them.  His favorite Smurf...Papa.  So we are definitely heading to opening weekend to see Smurfs: The Lost Village.

In this fully animated, all-new take on the Smurfs, a mysterious map sets Smurfette and her best friends Brainy, Clumsy and Hefty on an exciting and thrilling race through the Forbidden Forest filled with magical creatures to find a mysterious lost village before the evil …

Nessie & Me...a Review & a #Giveaway

Need a cute movie for the little ones to watch, this is the one.
Cheeks & I watched it, we liked it, albeit a bit young for my 10 year old boy.  I would say good age range for kids is maybe 3 to 7.

Here's a bit about the movie:

The Loch Ness Monster has been back in the news following a recent sighting and resurfaced pictures, just in time for the release of family movie “Nessie & Me,” which is now available on DVD & VOD, courtesy of Vision Films!
When 9-year-old Jamie moves to a beautiful lakeside village, he befriends a grumpy old sea captain who tells him of the lake’s mythical creature named Nessie. The townsfolk don’t believe him, but Jamie wonders if Nessie can be the solution to save the town from a greedy mogul who is buying up land around the lake… if only he can prove that Nessie is real. But sometimes it takes a little bit of magic, and with the help of a mermaid, a treasure map and an unlikely friendship with Nessie the Sea Monster, Jamie and the people of Lak…
