So after only a short weekend break (I think many of us could have used a week-long break) the time came to start the second semester, the spring term of my MSc. This module we’ll be following five different courses, one of which will last the whole semester, and the other four half a semester. I now following Health Economics, Management Challenges, and Managing Change and Innovation. Let me give you a brief overview of what it’s about:
Health Economics: as the name already says so, you will be studying economics. Mostly related to health care, but also a lot of wider applicable topics such as supply and demand curves.
First of all, I hope you all had a great start of the new year! My NYE celebration was magnificent, the idea of having to study on the day afterwards a bit less though.. Anyway, on the 4th of January I had to leave the lovely Netherlands again to go back to London for a final weekend of studying before the exams. After that one weekend, of which you will probably spend half talking to class mates on the phone about how crazy much work you have done and/or still need to do, it is time for the exams… The first day can be terrifying, since you don’t know what to expect, luckily my best friend from Amsterdam sent me lucky socks (see photo), hahaha!
- As you can probably guess from the title above, my flight from to London did not go as smooth as planned. After arriving at the airport, I spotted several flight delay notifications on the screens. At first, only the flight prior to mine was delayed, which made me laugh silently at the people on that flight, since my flight would now probably leave before their flight. But, of course, karma must have heard this silent laughter and in the end my flight was delayed for two hours, due to weather circumstances in London (which is very comforting thought if you don’t like rain, ahem…).
