Kate falls in love

So last week when I stumbled upon a pre-MBA program at Chicago Booth, I nearly lost bowel control (not really). It is a three week program designed to give liberal arts students without a business background a crash-course in marketing, finance, capital markets and other businessy things. There is also a ton of networking and touring of local companies. I would meet awesome people, both other participants and those teaching the course. It would give me an opportunity to meet some faculty and get them to fall in love with me too. It’s in Chicago, and I love Chicago more than anything. It’s basically the most perfect program in every way imaginable…

Except one. This three week program is only offered at the end of July, which just happens to fall in the middle of my training program at my company. I totally respect that they are investing a lot into me through this training program, but I’m also the type of person that takes an opportunity when it is given to them. I’m so not sure what to do- I don’t want to muddy any waters at work- I love my job. I just want to take this amazing opportunity to expand my business outlook. However, I’m not sure that the both of those are compatible as I’ve laid out.

I’m going to do tons of thinking on it and talk to maybe a million people whose opinions I trust. More on this in the coming weeks.
