WHY I CHOSE TO GET MY MBA
I graduated from high school in 1994. I went straight to Trident Technical College (TTC); in fact, I started classes a few days before walking to get my HS Diploma. I learned in this first year of college, what the problem was all the years of my education; I had ADHD. “Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) is a condition that becomes apparent in some children in the preschool and early school years. It is hard for these children to control their behavior and/or pay attention. It is estimated that between 3 and 5 percent of children have ADHD, or approximately 2 million children in the United States. This means that in a classroom of 25 to 30 children, it is likely that at least one will have ADHD,” (“Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder,” 2003).
I went to TTC for a year and a half, and ended up dropping out of school. I, with Drugs and counseling, learned how to overcome the issues that arise, with having ADHD.
How did you decide to pursue your MBA?
Southern Wesleyan University, (SWU), was a college that had a program for adults who worked fulltime, Adult Graduate Studies, (AGS). I started there in 2002, and finally graduated in May 2007, with a BSBA. I started immediately at Capella University and was working on a master’s of science degree in management and human resources. This program was online and not much Professor interaction. So I sought out a school that was structured similar to how I learned at SWU, and settled on University of Phoenix, Augusta campus.
