I applied to NUS because of its reputation for quality research and curriculum. On a typical day as an accounting PhD student, I read research, work on data and discuss my studies with schoolmates and professors. What I enjoy the most as a PhD student here is the highly collaborative environment with my professors and peers – they provide great insights to my work.
I joined the NUS PhD programme five years ago, the first two years of the programme focused on theory and course work, while the remaining three years really honed my practical research capabilities and methodologies. Throughout this time, I worked closely with my supervisors who provided me with invaluable advice and guidance on effective learning and research skills. Collaborating with an international group of students also created an environment for sharing different experiences and ideas. I truly believe that my NUS Business School PhD journey has provided me with the right knowledge and skills, laying a strong foundation that allowed me to take on a job at City University of Hong Kong.
