Andy Burleson becomes an MBA!

by Donald K. Burleson

December 2010

Andrew Sean Burleson is now a Master of Business Administration!

I’m proud that both of my kids in are following in my footsteps and becoming MBA’s.

Last Friday, on the 17th of December, 2010, Andy finally got hooded!


Getting an MBA is a transformative experience; it defines you as a hard charging attack dog, a business executive who rules the world the Fortune 500.  Andy graduated from East Carolina University College of Business, consistently rated as one of America’s top Business schools.

The MBA program is defined by hardness:

  • Hard Entry:  You need a great undergraduate PGA and a good GMAT score to get into a competitive AACSB MBA school.
  •  Hard program:  The classes beat you up!  When I was adjunct faculty at the University of New Mexico College of Business, I felt bad for abusing them but I told them that “They did it to me, and I’m fixing to do it to you”.
  • Hard Skills:  An MBA is a thinking machine who knows every nook and cranny of the business world.

Andy had reason to be proud:

Andrew Burleson:  a spanking new MBA!

I ensured that both my kids learned the value of hard work and the courage to take calculated risks.  They are both proficient skiers, certified scuba divers. 

I even made them try skydiving, to get the confidence to make life-or-death decisions:

Now he only has six more semester of study (Law school) and he will be ready to enter the world of work, holding the ultimate über degree, the JD/MBA.


Sadly, like most kids his age, an MBA has not yet paid off . . .
