As I spend the next few months preparing to move and start my MBA life I have begun to reflect back on my days as an undergrad. I know my study skills were pretty poor and I could have gotten much more value from my education. I wasn't out partying, but just became easily distracted by the outside world and found it hard to feel really engaged in most of my classes. Since business is the most interesting to me and the curriculum is focused on the outside world so to speak I think I will have an easier time,but I want some advice on how to improve study skills which for me is also tied to time management. Any advice or personal stories are appreciated.

Prioritize. Don't worry about what your are missing out on. Go to class and know you are going to study afterwards. Get the mindset down.

Unlike undergrad, you will quickly find that everyone in b-school is there to learn, not just fulfilling some obligation to their parents to go to school. This alone helps tremendously to keep you focused. Couple that with the fact you're shelling out your own hard earned cash to be there, and voila! you suddenly find yourself engaged and alert. Also helps to arrive with a pretty good idea of what you might want to do post MBA, which should guide your classroom attentiveness as well as extracurricular activity choices. Finally, make sure you figure out what kind of learner you are: aural, tactile, read-and-memorize, group study, independent study, etc. Simply knowing the kinds of environments which allow you to learn most comfortably will help you build a good routine. Good luck!

Managing your time and using it wisely is a journey, and not something that can be easily mastered overnight. Implementing a plan will help, but it is not going to be a sure cure. Time management requires a significant amount of self-discipline.
