The Guest Lecture series with Dr.
Recalling this post which was written two years ago hereI am glad that I am still able to contribute to the decision making of university prospects, with over views to date.
And now, with two more years of experience, let me try to dish out more of my honest views as well as provide some guidance to the prospects. How happy am I? I recall a parent asking me this question: Mainly due to activities outside academic and a handful of modules which I truly enjoyed.
However, the majority of school work were really dull and just not for me. On a side note, I am a really chill person; I can probably forget to go for an exam and not blink an eye.
Which comes to my next point. There are definitely a lot of you out there like me; Excelling in math and science but you just hate, you just freaking hate to practice countless of questions in order to secure that A in the exams.
Yes, I wanted to try something new, something unrelated to what I know I can do, to challenge myself in another field.
Did I regret my decision? Yes, I changed my choices two times during NS.
How to get a job without internships. And my complains about the school? Be clear, it is how to make money for an organization, not how to run an organization, and definitely not how to create an organization.
There are generally 3 kinds of students in business schools: Those who want to be entrepreneurs or businessmen. Those who do not have the slightest idea what they want to do with their life. Which one do you belong to? You see, business school has nothing to do with whether or not you want to be your own boss.
You learn the skills that the school teaches you, and you decide for yourself if you are ready or if you are cut out to be your own boss.
That is precisely my point about why I felt that most of the classes were not value-adding! Or rather, do we even know what we learnt? Can those skills even be applicable?
Coming back to the curriculum. There have been quite some changes to the NUS curriculum from the time I was a freshmen. As a year 1, you only have to think about 1 elective for each semester because you will be allocated 4 modules each semester and you cannot choose.
If TLDR, you can leave now. So for a business undergraduate without honours, we should complete MCs in order to graduate in 3 years or 6 semesters. Rather, you have a choice from a list of modules. So, there are 5 of these ULRs that you have to take in order to graduate. The next 24MCs or 6 mods are 6 other business modules you can choose which most people use to specialize in one of the four Finance, Marketing, Management and Supply Chain.
Yes, you have to use 6 modules to do one specialization.WEI-KANG WONG Department of Economics, National University of Singapore, AS2, 1 Arts Link, Singapore , Republic of Singapore – National University of Singapore Overseas Graduate Scholarship Mini Grant for Data Acquisition, Institute for Business and Economic Research, UC Berkeley FASS Symposium, NUS.
