It was never on my mind that I would be spending FIVE YEARS of my life in our beloved Monash. But here I am – back after 3 years of
hell degree and ready to devote another 24 months in the name of Athena, Ganesha, Apollo, and the endless list of knowledge deities. I have no one else to blame but myself – and I wanna ensure that you guys wouldn’t make the same mistake.
Starting out a Masters program a month after finals are done – felt like getting out of the frying pan into a burning kitchen. Sure, plans were drawn up and researches were done; but jumping ship from a science degree to business was a spur of the moment decision. Or rather, an unconsciously premeditated one. It’s hard not to see the world as a collection of corporate empires, and to ignore this fact is pretty reckless. As I wandered about the abyss of seeking jobs, getting a certification in something as commonly practiced as business makes sense. If you have been to Monash’s career and internship fair, you would realize that the prospect for degrees other than business is
nonexistent rare. I am, therefore, bridging the field that I love with the field that every company seeks for.
