MBA students, how well are you managing repetitive web searches? Are you searching for updated information on web sites and blogs by returning to them periodically or, are you receiving automatic updates as changes occur? Are you having updates pushed to you or are you pulling the new information to you when you are ready for it?
MBA students manage a barrage of information from faculty members, program administrators, classmates, and teammates while at the same time they are searching for new information on their own to complete class assignments. All of which is in addition to the non-MBA information flows they must cope with as well.
Information management for MBA students can be challenging. Fortunately, there are technology solutions and tools that can help MBA students meet this challenge. I introduced one tool in a previous post, Google Scholar. In this post, I want to suggest that RSS feeds and readers are tools MBA students can use to manage information as well as simplify their MBA life.
