Advancing in the field of academics is one of the achievements that many scholars look forward to accomplishing. I am a scholar who is interested in furthering my education in the Joint MS Information Technology and Management /MBA Program at University of Texas at Dallas (UTD). I know that venturing into a new environment always results in various challenges. As such, I anticipate some emotional, social and academic challenges. The academic challenges such as coping with the new teaching methods used by the professors, conceptualizing the various types of assessment procedures, working myself round the volume and pace of the workload, and learning how to study independently will be inevitable. In addition, I anticipate learning how to make the most of the time available for academics.
Undertaking the program would be a major step towards fulfilling my long-term desire of upgrading my career track to the next level, the management level. Besides, it would allow me to fulfill the market needs of IT in the U.S., more especially within the field of Enterprise Systems track and the Business Intelligence and Analytics track.
