The participants in the inaugral Bachelor of Applied Management program at Skagit Valley College, WA are now three weeks into their second quarter of the program. As we often talk about during our weekly cohort meetings, being the first can be a mixed blessing. There is always the first mover advantage, the trend setting and the opportunity to forge and shape new paths. But, with these advantages come invariable teething pains. The 2018-20 BAS-AM cohort has demonstrated admirable patience and good humor as we work through the bumps. It gives me great pride and joy to be learning with them.
