Last Saturday was the 1st day in the USC EMBA program. I was very excited to meet my new classmates and get the program going. There are 59 of us in the San Diego class.
I met a lot of new people and USC got us off to a great start. We were issued books and binders for our 1st two Themes. The USC EMBA program does not have traditional classes. They are organized into Themes, which are a collection of classes under a business theme. There were a lot of books and materials. This is going to be a tough year.
We were also introduced to the USC online system and were issued Office 2007 for our laptops. We spent most of the day configuring our laptops and getting acquainted with the features and functionality of the USC website.
During lunch, I met a few of my classmates and began to look around to see who I could form a study group with.
It was a short day and I was on the tail end of a business trip to Hawaii, so I was exhausted. I was glad to get back to my hotel room for a nap. We’ll see what next week has in store.
