Obiamaka’s Letter to Students

Submitted by Obiamaka in November 2012

Dear Student,

I would love to write about how important school is and how important it is to have a degree in order to be successful in the business world. However, I assume that if you have gotten this far in your life that you already grasp the idea of the importance of education. So, I intend to advice, you, on what not to do as a graduate, business student. Being that your work load is going to be extensive, in school, it would be in your best interest to avoid any extra baggage in other words, “delaying gratification with hotshot, smooth, talking, horny, young men, is not such a bad idea.” Moreover, time management is your friend. This means that if you have a series of exams coming up, the best thing to do is to stay away from clubs, bars, and fun functions that could keep you drunk all night and out of it the next day. Before test days, be sure to pay a visit to your instructor, during his/her office hours, and ask questions pertaining to upcoming examination, that way, you are not blindsided or surprised by the questions on the exam. Pay close attention to detail because in the business world there are plenty of ways to con someone out of their hard earned money. Lastly, congratulations on making it this far in your academic career but, laying back when you’ve gotten so far, is the most ridiculous thing you could do, suck it up and keep up the hard work until you have officially graduated from business school.

With Care,
