Decision to apply to Business School

June 26th, 2009 by Randy Zwitch · No Comments · Fuqua Application

My choice to apply to business school was somewhat haphazard.  Like many of my colleagues and peers, I’ve reached a point in my career where I’ve achieved just enough to not quit at a moments notice!  But at the same time, it’s hard to not continuously think “Could I be doing something else?  Should I be doing something else?”

I was sitting in a meeting late summer/early fall of 2008, thinking about this very idea.  I remember the meeting being very slow and tedious, and as more of an observer than a participant, I started daydreaming.  And at some point in the daydream, it occurred to me that maybe I should get an MBA to supplement my education.  Now, you’d think a decision as major as returning to school would start with the idea “What education do I need to improve my career?” or “What am I interested in?”…hell, “I’ve always dreamed on going to (insert school here)” would suffice in a pinch.   But for me, the decision literally started as a daydream.

Thomas Edison famously quipped, “Vision without execution is hallucination.”  Now that I had daydreamed my way into going back to school, it would take a few more months to figure out the rest.  As daydreams often go, details not included.
