My husband in Dallas, salary 21 months away
at times isn’t a whole lot of fun;
Yet “greater risks yield greater return”
with 8 weeks of finance – at least that I have learnt.
Making new bonds for real,
learning more than just nominal,
capitalizing on my productivity,
before it becomes diminishing returns theory.
Some debits of knowledge here,
some credits of time there,
many liabilities on the rise,
it has to payback equity-wise!
New information adds value to my GDP
yield curve puts more faith in NPV
with 99% confidence intervals I wonder
what is the probability – to be or not to be.
While at times the learning seems cyclical,
I retain those for returns intellectual and fiscal;
Theory of default rejected,
‘beta’ of 100, but challenge accepted!
After regressing many analyses
variables are iid’s but still correlated;
Discounting what I don’t know,
with the rest, aiming to be thorough.
I am just an eighth of an MBA
so much to learn, so much to say,
I hope for the best and so shall happen,
but only time will tell, only time can tell –
the time value of my MBA!
It had to happen. The MBA poem was long overdue. I don’t know if I mentioned this earlier or not but although I love writing, I actually write poems. With the first half of my first semester over and after my accounting, finance, statistics and macroeconomics finals, I had to write one. And as I wrote, I realized how much of an influence all this has had over me in the past few weeks and somehow it manages to capture my state pretty decently I’d say. This is dedicated to all MBA students, present and past. All future ones – you’ll get this when you become a part of this process. All others, shoot questions if you have any. I’m not going to write a lot this time and let my poem do the talking. Hope you enjoyed!!
Wondering what the next blog is about? You’ll have to wait and see!
