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:
- What is sustainable business?
- What sort of impact do you envision BGI graduates having upon the practices of a non-sustainable business?
- Upon graduation, what jobs do BGI graduates usually take?
- Does BGI routinely create MBA students that are as well or better prepared than MBA students from other schools?
- 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.
