I’m back in school.
I have a bit of a public confession to make: I didn’t finish my graduate degree, the one I started in 1998. Back then, I was the next best thing to a fresh graduate, having burned out after a year of teaching (partly at UA&P, partly at good old AdMU). I started taking my master’s degree in Information Management, which naturally is totally unrelated to my bachelor’s degree (I’m the proud holder of an AB in English Literature from the Ateneo). At the time, it was envisioned as a degree for technical folks or IT managers to get their credentials in proper management tools. CIOs were the new big thing in multinational organizations and it was what we all aspired to be.
