Graduate School Updates

I thought I’d post an update to my musings on the future done last month. I’m scheduled to visit Bainbridge Graduate Institute (BGI) on November 5th to take a look around. My running questions list for these guys so far is as follows:

  1. What is sustainable business?
  2. What sort of impact do you envision BGI graduates having upon the practices of a non-sustainable business?
  3. Upon graduation, what jobs do BGI graduates usually take?
  4. Does BGI routinely create MBA students that are as well or better prepared than MBA students from other schools?
  5. How well does BGI prepare students to challenge the perceptions of business leaders and innovators?

I have basically ruled out Teach for America as an option for future work. I realized that, while I wholeheartedly support the social vision and ideology that Teach for America represents, that I have heard a lot of stories about Teach for America students who are not well supported or prepared for their work. I applaud their efforts, but such a program doesn’t fit who I am.

I am, at some point this fall, going to attend an information session for Evergreen’s Masters in Teaching program. I haven’t figured out exactly when yet — it depends upon my ability to fit it into my work and class schedule.
