Finally! It is official… I am an MBA graduate. My 3-year adventure has come to an end.

Throughout the course of my MBA at WOU, I met a lot of amazing people, and learnt both business and life experiences. All of this has led me to achieve my ultimate goal: to plan for a great future.

When I was in the middle of the MBA process, I already had a firm post-MBA plan in mind. During that time, I have worked very hard and spent a lot of time in achieving this milestone.

Why get an MBA?

A common question that people ask is, “why do you want to get an MBA?

FREE Training with Microsoft Virtual Academy

There are many opportunities for getting the certification, but some of them can be very expensive. In these current economic times, budget cuts have become the norm, and companies’ training budget is always one of the first things to go. It’s understandable that Microsoft training classes tend to be costly. Therefore, I was trying hard to look for other training options.

Believe it or not, Microsoft actually offers training through the Microsoft Virtual Academy (MVA) for FREE. MVA is a cloud-based training portal. If not mistaken, it was the first put in place to equip IT experts with training on Microsoft’s cloud based technologies. Besides that, you don’t have to meet any criteria to take part in this training. The courses and its vast resources are freely available to anyone!

Once you have registered you can signed into the MVA to make a selection on the technical track. A track can be best described as an area of study. For instance, some of the available tracks are Microsoft Azure Developer Camp: Build a Cloud-Native App, Office 365 for Developer, HTML5.

The other good point is Microsoft does not limit the amount of FREE training that you can attend. You can do it as many as you like. There is also no obligation to complete the track before starting another.

Mapping A Path to Greater Savings

Whether you are planning a long trip or running errands, perhaps you would like to stop for a break or there are a few interesting scenery views that you would like to see while traveling. With Route4Me’s route planning software, it allows you to key in multiple places and addresses, which will plot the whole route at the most efficient traveling time from location to location for you. Besides that, it will also map out a round trip so you can make a return to where you began.

This route planner software can also provides you the driving directions to each location that you can easily print and take with you. Or you can download the directions file into your GPS device or other navigation systems that support it, so the route comes up pre-plotted when you connect it into your GPS.

The web interface is pretty simple and straightforward – you just need enter current location and destinations. However, you might have to change them if your addresses provided are not specific enough. The system is not as forgiving as some other mapping tools.

Redeem Public Mutual Fund Online

Redeeming mutual fund is very easy and straightforward nowadays. You can withdraw your mutual funds on any business day without any charges. The unit trust management company will be obliged to purchase them so it comes with high liquidity whereby they can be readily converted into cash anytime.

As a unit holder, you will need to know that the NAV of the working day is applicable till 3pm or 4pm during redemption depending on which market you are dealing with. The value of the redemption will be based on the closing price of the business day in which the redemption request is received. Therefore, if you apply for redemption after 3pm or 4pm, you will receive the NAV of the next day.

Usually, it will take 4-10 working days to transfer the money to your bank account. In case you need money urgently, make sure you initiate the process at the beginning of the week to avoid the gap of a weekend which may cause delay in processing.

If you have a Public Bank account which linked to your Public Mutual Online account, then it’s much convenience for you to purchase, switch, sell back and check your units & value. Recently, I made redemption on the following funds through online:

i. Public China Ittikal Fund
ii. Public Singapore Equity Fund
iii. Public Islamic Asia Leaders Equity Fund
iv. PB Euro Pacific Equity Fund
