Declaring the M.B.A degree as conferred. Amena Khan. M.B.A, inshAllah. 10 days left.

MBA Folks, I will not be attending our June 13th, 2012 graduation ceremony. I still remember on the first day when I took the 7:00am train for transition week, tears rolled down my eyes as I reflected upon what a massive step a master’s program was. I was afraid of the foreign territory of “business” that I was entering. Who knew, that within a week of the MBA socialization process, I would be flocking into school with suits and high heels! And who knew, I would be this happy with it.

I’d like to thank:

  • My Blog: Through you, I see me.
  • My iPhone, the love of my life. You changed not only how I communicated with others, but how I communicated with myself.
  • My Glass Desk and my Exec Chair: You stood so elegantly in my room and made me want to study.
  • My Vaio Laptop: You’re so sleek and beautiful, thank you for gracing my desk.
  • My house in Oakville: Thank you for being the warmth that I came to after endless nights of intense assignments, interviews, workshops and presentations.
  • Twitter: Thank you for capturing my thoughts.
  • Family: Goes without saying.
  • Businessweek Magazine: For reaching my doorstep relentlessly and piling up before I got a chance to finish reading the previous one.
  • Burlington: You bought my school so much closer to my house and made my commute so much easier.
  • My Fellow Classmates. The MBA degree is meaningless without you.
  • Non-MBA Friends: Couldn’t do it without you.
  • Professors & T.As: Although some of you have purposely been forgotten, most others hold a very special spot in my heart. Dr. Head, thank you.
  • CBCD: Thank you for the endless services in preparing us for the fierce workforce that stood before us.
  • Co-op Managers:  You believed in me and let me take the stage when I didn’t even know what I was.

All these months, I waited so eagerly to be crowned with my graduation Hat and wear my MBA ring, not to declare that I finished  my MBA (because I think my degree will materialize after 5 years of work experience) but to see pride in the handful of people who blindly believed in me. I cannot wait to reveal my future to you.

Best of luck my fellow Graduating Classmates. Put on your shades, the future looks bright.
