Today marks another very special day to me. I just received all my materials for my Y159: Understanding Management opening course at Open University. Everything arrived earlier than I had anticipated and I am so very impressed before my Nov 1st start date. I have ample time to properly get my self better organized and in the right study mindset. I am looking forward to a wonderful journey.
As I unpacked and checked off to make sure everything was here, much started going through my mind and because Open University understands completely what each new student will go through; I followed their instructions and watched the DVD and my mind became at ease, I began to smile. It was as though all of what was said throughout the DVD I could readily relate to and became an immediate source of inspiration.
You see, I have loved watching my husband, Albert as he started his Open University journey now a year ago and has successfully passed his two modules M150 and T175 toward his BSc ( Honours) Computing and IT. He is now taking TM128 and T156 modules. I have watched him grow as a committed student and a wonderful husband while working full time , never loosing focus of any of his responsibilites and keeping me motivated to the fullest.
My journey at Open University is just starting and will be a bit different as I received my BS (honors) degree over twenty years ago as well as been in management all in another country. Today has truly confirmed Y159: Understanding Management is exactly what I need to get me back into the higher learning, focusing on management in a different country with a different culture mindset.
Now, I will take it one step at a time and work hard doing what I love doing as well. To be able to apply all that I know and I will learn is exciting and a welcome experience.
Thank you Open University, you are such a continual blessing to both my husband and I in our business as well as our personal development.
