After the hectic times of 1st term and at the beginning of the break, I looked back at the last term and asked myself the question: what have I gained?
Although I learned a lot of new knowledge and met a lot of new good friends, I want to emphasize the learning from the team that I have worked together with to study, to identify problems and to provide solutions.
In fact, if I was asked the same question one week ago, the answer would probably have been different; I would have picked a specific subject that would be handy for my job. During one of the lectures of Professor Tom Yannuzzi, he stressed a thesis, central idea, should be firm and clear for any/all presentations, so I cannot clutter the presentation with too much information or use information that distorts the focus. My supporting ideas and information should be based on the thesis to make a more convincing and powerful presentation.
I was thinking of the thesis of my MBA. Having a good salary? Having better jobs, houses and cars? No, my thesis is how I can participate in a world of contrast between winning and losing.
Throughout the group activities, I realized that one tiny thing can incur huge differences in opinion and one huge thing that seemed to be very difficult to deal with can be done surprisingly easy.
I believe learning through the team and learning with the team is the most important knowledge gained so far – it is intangible yet cannot be copied or taken away easily.
