I got in to AGSM!

logo Australian Graduate School of ManagementWow these guys work fast. I received an email Offer to Commence MBA (Executive) Program at AGSM. Now I have to pick subjects and apply for the Federal Government’s FEE-HELP interest free student loan. As an Australian citizen I’m eligible for a loan paid back through my tax return once I’m earning above the threshold.

As a fee-paying student it is easier to get into, especially as the offer is technically for the Graduate Diploma in Management.  I’ll update you on my course selections later.

    Congrats on getting into AGSM.

    From what I know (mostly via your SS posts) you’ve done your training already where it matters most (in the real world). So, if you don’t mind a complete stranger asking, what’s the motivation? M

  2. It’s amazing what you see when you scroll just that litle further down a webpage. Ignore that question, I understand your rationale. Again, congratulations. M

  3. Thanks for the question Mark, and while I did answer it in my first application post, I’m even happier with my decision to do the course. I’ll post about it in a couple of hours in the main blog.



  4. Stumbled upon your blog when I ‘googled’ AGSM …. first of all congratulations on the admit. I will be applying to AGSM for their February 2008 intake …. hope to catch up with you somewhere if I get through !
    I must compliment you on your discipline & regularity in blogging (which I lack terribly) and the blogs are very interesting as well.


  5. You may also get the scholarships by attending the Reverse Officer’s Training Corp program. If you are interested in serving in the military for a certain period of years, you may also avail the scholarship from the ROTC, which can be done, only after your graduation. There are also organizations that offer scholarships; they are professional associations, religious groups and civic organizations.

    There are some grants available, which need not be repaid, and some of them are federal, private and state grants.When expecting the grant you have to be aware of a few things. There is a limitation in the grants that are available by the government. If you are planning to educate yourself in a community college, the expenses will be lesser and most of your tuition fees will be taken care by the grants.

  6. Vikrant I look forward to meeting you in one of the subjects. Are you intending to do the full time or part-time course. The part-time is quite extensive – I’m putting in 10-12 hours per week and I already know the material. However I want to internalise the subject so I think it’s worth the work. I think I could get by on 8 hours or so if I just wanted to pass.

    Grants. Thanks for the comment, even though you obviously don’t know anything about Australian Post-Graduate study. I don’t think I’m eligible for ROTC scholarships and I don’t think the ROTC would pay for a US citizen to attend AGSM.

    I’ve left the comment stand but couldn’t bring myself to leave the link clickable. If someone likes what you’ve said, they’ll find you via that URL.
