As you can read on the other posts, yes, we’re halfway the first term! It’s been busy, very busy, but challenging and motivating too. We started with Accounting, Health Informatics and Marketing. Accounting is probably the toughest subject for those who, like me, have never studied anything related to economics or finance. But, even if you have to work hard to be up to date, the teaching system is well designed so that at the end of the course you feel that you have really made the most of it.
So we’ve worked a lot! Individually but also in syndicate groups.
So. 4 weeks done. Week 5 begins today… and boy, does it feel longer than 4 weeks that I have been here…it feels like 4 months!
What’s happening?… plenty! This week is assignment week to the max. We have a debate tomorrow for Health Informatics, a presentation in Marketing and a report to hand-in for Accounting next week. Basically this means a lot of group meetings, unhealthy food, coffee and blood/sweat/tears!! Nope, I’m just joking. We’re all actually doing quite well. We planned our meetings and what bits of the assignment who will be working on in advance to avoid last minute surprises and such like…so hopefully it will all go smoothly.
The fire alarm went off in the library this morning, meaning we all had to leave the building and wait outside until the situation was resolved. It is incredible how many people are already at the Imperial library around 11am as you can see on the pictures.
Hi to all prospective students! My name is Ion Agirrezabal, I am Basque, 27 years old, and I am currently studying MSc International Health Management at Imperial College Business School. My background is scientific: I studied biochemistry and then worked for more than 4 years (first in a research laboratory and then in a pharmaceutical company) until I arrived here in London a few weeks ago. However, my trip to London started a long time ago doing what you are doing right now: looking for information and feeling a little bit lost and overwhelmed. But don’t panic! It takes time to gather information, read, evaluate and make a decision.
Hey, my name is Avanti Gupta and I am an MSc International Health Management student here at the Imperia College Business School. I did my undergraduate degree in Biomedical Sciences at the University of Sheffield and really enjoyed my time there so this course has to meet some high expectations that I am sure it will meet!
I come from the capital of India, New Delhi and one might expect me to be quite familiar with the ‘big city life’ at London, however, this isn’t the case! London is, as you can imagine, very different and so it is quite a challenge and a new experience trying to settle in.
