As I attempt to ignore the National Football League draft echoing in the background, I drift off thinking about the meaning of "value." Due to the primary topic of discussion during the draft, the first word that enters my mind is "money." This did not fit my assignment so, I begin thinking again and the next word is, "worth." This directs my thoughts to explore the value, or worth, of having the rEsourceSM tool available throughout my M.B.A. program. The resource is a secure and individualized website for each enrolled student at the university. Another valuable aspect of the M.B.A. program is the use of Learning Teams, a team-based approach to enhance individual education. Lastly, I will address the value of problem-based learning.

The true value of the use of learning teams is evident to me as I can take this educational experience and apply in my work life on a daily basis.
