Most MBA students do not find themselves unhappy with their MBA program. However, many do find that, during their pursuit of an MBA, they develop an attitude or feeling of disapproval of certain aspects of the program and they find little pleasure from their participation in the program. In the short term, such attitudes or feelings can adversely affect a student’s learning, while, in the long term, they can affect student and alumni advocacy for the program. What should an MBA student do when they find themselves in this situation?
Many MBA faculty members think that MBA students are lazy. Why do they think this? Well, perhaps it is because some MBA students come to class without completing homework assignments, without reading assigned articles and book chapters, and when in class they are not active participants in discussions.

Now there may be another answer, exhausted self-control.

Helping MBA students live and work smarter while earning their MBA degree is the goal of MyeEMBA. The online tool referenced in the title is OpenTable, a leading provider of free, real-time online restaurant reservations for diners. I use this tool on a regular basis to make restaurant reservations. Recently, during a visit to Honolulu, I used OpenTable to make dinner reservations at four restaurants. I selected all four based on the ratings and feedback found in OpenTable. I was not disappointed as all provided exceptional dining experiences. OpenTable is an extremely valuable tool that helps me live and work smarter. Perhaps this free online tool can help MBA students, MBA faculty members, MBA program administrators, and others to live and work smarter as well.
