Comment on Time to Fix Your Debt? by joynahtan http://blogs.darden.virginia.edu/brunerblog/2014/09/time-to-fix-your-debt/comment-page-1/#comment-1879990 Thu, 09 Apr 2015 09:07:35 +0000 https://blogs.darden.virginia.edu/brunerblog/?p=1541#comment-1879990 Wonderful piece and glorious timing: finance made easy for scholar-mortgage holders. As busy as persons are of their examine or work lives, they typically don’t make the time to critically think about their longer-time period monetary obligations, together with excellent floating-charge loans.

Comment on Choosing an MBA School: the Principle of “Five Friends” by ANKIT http://blogs.darden.virginia.edu/brunerblog/2015/03/choosing-an-mba-school-the-principle-of-five-friends/comment-page-1/#comment-1786292 Thu, 12 Mar 2015 06:47:56 +0000 https://blogs.darden.virginia.edu/brunerblog/?p=1602#comment-1786292 Hi Prof Bruner,

This was quite a useful article for me. Can you share school’s perspective on the applicants who are nonprofit leaders? Also, How MOOCs can be a useful tool for applicants and schools to connect for redefining Business education?

Best,
Ankit

Comment on Why should I even think of applying to business school? by David W http://blogs.darden.virginia.edu/brunerblog/2006/07/why-should-i-even-think-of-applying-to-business-school/comment-page-1/#comment-1715408 Mon, 16 Feb 2015 10:56:55 +0000 http://blogs.darden.virginia.edu/brunerblog/?p=16#comment-1715408 Great Blog. I cannot think of a career where a business degree would not benefit you. I work in advertising now and run a successful Promotional Product company. It’s a competitive industry and i brand merchandise for large corporate clients. I couldn’t keep up here in the states and saw an opportunity in Australia. My success comes down to determination. I almost put the pen to paper but passed on Darden and i regret it. There were times when i needed the services and advice of others to move the business forward and because in business you need to take certain risks to be successful. At the start you have nothing to lose and no fear. Time goes on and every risk you take affects others. With a business degree you will always have more options. You will have answers to questions giving you the chance to make decisions faster and miss far less opportunities. It’s a few years of your life that will benefit your forever.
