I chose MIT because of the strong suite of subjects in the course. One of the most interesting subjects has been Critical Thinking and Decision Making. This course has had such an effect on me that some of my views have drastically changed. I’ve learnt how to scrutinise the things that we see, hear and read daily, learnt how to construct strong arguments based on facts, and then present the information to people in an effective manner.
In my photography business, I’ve been implementing knowledge gained from the degree to my work practices, and I’ve already started to get much more positive reviews than before! My decision-making has improved, I’ve established rules for myself, and I’m planning for the future of the business now. It’s amazing to see how my studies directly affect the way I view my current work processes and decisions I make for the company.
