Today I got a call from my university, probably from my tutor who welcomed me at the university in personal. Since I have been abroad, she just explained me that my welcoming email will come soon into my student mailbox.

Being a university student must be a drudgery but I believe it will be very rewarding, especially because of the way Open University is structured. It is opened to everybody who is willing to put the real effort.

I chose studying business because a friend of mine said once “if you don’t know what to choose, go for business”. Well I knew what to choose. But because I’ve always been a multitasker I enjoy philosophy, psychology, political studies, languages, computing, international studies, arts, humanities etc.

But I figured out that I speak fluently 4 languages so why would I study them or some other. I can learn as I go, just how I learned Slovak and Czech and then English and Polish.

I love philosophy but I can always read a book and get the knowledge during winter evenings and psychology is something I have observed because that’s what my mother does for a living. I used to be a leader of youth parliament learning about the way political agendas are working and I guess that’s what is enough for me – some kind of general knowledge.

Business is widest subject containing management, marketing, accounting and human resource management and many other things. It’s unlikely that you take a book of accounting and learn how to count profits during winter evenings. I also was very good at school in all of these and the first time I heard MBA abbreviation – I wanted to acquire that. It’s something untouchable but I learned through life that at some point some things seem so distant and impossible, yet by putting effort or simply by taking time – we reach that.

Having an honours degree in business administration or later MBA will give me the freedom to be wherever I want to be, to be flexible and because we deal with business every day – to make a good living. All this and more will give me the space to flourish when I am off work – to read some book by philosopher, to write and to explore whatever I need to explore to become more creative and fulfilled.

So wish me luck on my journey because I simply enjoy it every day, not just thinking about the MBA but the actual process it has. I don’t want to skip anything, it’s gonna be great.
