After returning from my weekend excursion to the Hofbräu Festzelt at Oktoberfest, I noticed an announcement from Creighton University, stating that I had until 15 October to complete a task.

I started my master’s degree (Investment Management and Financial Analysis, or MIMFA) a little over two years ago with Creighton University. Yesterday, I inched closer to a significant milestone when I applied for graduation in December 2015. It isn’t really sinking in yet that I will be complete with the MIMFA program in less than 11 weeks.

What will I do with all the free time?

Lest my friends and family think my life will return to normalcy in mid December, I will still have the CFA Level 3 exam in June 2016 to contend with.

It was kind of a strange feeling applying for graduation. I am knocking on the door of one of my major goals – completing the MIMFA program.


Victory is imminent.
