Graduating from MIS Marketing dip course

I have been missing in action for a while here cos I have been busy investing in... learning!

I have gone back to studying, doing project and sitting in lectures just like in uni days, all while working part-time for 6 months from Jan followed by a new full-time job in August. Life has become more fulfilling, I would say, than if I had stayed on in my previous dreary job. Through this change, I have gotten to know more people both inside and outside of my profession. Good to meet new people!

After the final exam on 29th Oct I will be officially "liberated" from my course. On one hand I am glad that the course has come to an end so I would have more free time to read up on those clinical stuff for my 'continuous education' that I have been neglecting and possibly engage in a regular sports to increase my fitness level. On the other hand, I will miss the times of going-back-to-school, brainstorming of case studies and non-work chitchats with my classmates.

I do not have much prior learning on business except for 1 module of basic marketing elective previously in uni. This course has really opened my eye through theories and case studies on the aspects of business which I have not come across or thought about - like what are the considerations for penetrating overseas market, how branding and marketing play a role in business management, how to employ marketing strategies to optimize opportunities and overcome threats and applying theories in marketing communications (it's really not about doing creative craps haha).

I wished it wasn't such a crash course. Most of the theories I have yet to digest and 'bam' it's exam time - after all it's only an 8-month course. Nevertheless, the foundation knowledge and information-gathering techniques that I have learnt will surely come into good use in future if I could progress in the field of business management.

The end of one learning journey often marks the start of another isn't it?



  1. Rainbow coin,

    Ah! Study finish liao. Congrats!

    It reminded me of my night classes when I took my LCCI and CIM marketing courses ;)

    Cheers and Happy New Year!
