Hi all, First of all, my sincerest apologies for posting after such a long time…. procrastination got the better of me!
I hope 2013 is off to a wonderful start for you all! Second semester, the first half has
flown by… I can’t believe it! 5 weeks since exams ended… Which I realise, I didn’t
even tell you about …. So will do a quick note on the exams. In short, 5 days, 5 exams
…back to back! Hell. ‘Nuff said. No but seriously, would strongly recommend keeping on top of your notes and reading
if possible because I found it significantly easier to revise for the exams I had done
this for, than those that I hadn’t. Other key tips-eat well. Sleep plenty. Try to get some
exercise. I know this is super general but this becomes crucial during the intense 10
day exam period so to speak.
Finding your balance is pretty easy when you know what your focus is. Different
coursemates of mine focus on different things. For some it’s academics, the others
it’s finding a job, for yet others, it’s about the overall experience and for the others,
they have their profession, sport or “life” to get back to, and this is but a hiatus.
Whatever your reason is for doing this Master’s, make sure you know it, remember
it and remind yourself what it is, because its very easy to forget and feel confused,
lost and overwhelmed…. (and hence the title, finding your balance… Mind the gap!)
The second semester modules are healthcare orientated including health economics,
innovation in healthcare and management challenges of healthcare. I personally,
am not a fan of describing courses as I feel you will enjoy them far more if you
discover them for yourself !
So come with an open mind, remain with an open mind and have a great time!
No experience is ever waste, I truly believe that. And the experience of studying
at Imperial College Business School….most certainly not a waste!
“The best and safest thing is to keep a balance in your life, acknowledge the great powers around us and in us. If you can do that, and live that way, you are really a wise man.”
Thanks for reading and have a good week!
