To be honest, it was a tough period so far. Candidates who think about doing a master’s program while working, have to know this: you have to sacrifice your time to be successful. However, two years is not too long to focus only on work and study, if you think about how it adds value to your abilities and prepares you for a bright future.
I started studying at SIBE and working at Ensinger together and I knew what was awaiting me. My managers at Ensinger also informed me about, how tough the two years can get. In SIBE’s study concept, it is easier to combine full-time work and studies, because my studies are entirely related to my work which means I don’t need to study something irrelevant to my work, but something applicable. Ensinger is a really relevant part of my studies as well, they allow me to spend time for my studies, whenever I need it.
Lastly, I informed my family and friends about how the two years will look like. I already apologized from the beginning as well. Thanks to their help and understanding, I can work in line with my schedule.
Summarized, being prepared for this period with my family is one of the key factors for me while organizing myself. In practice, I prepare monthly and weekly timelines according to tasks that I have at SIBE and Ensinger. And I work in line with these timelines without any excuse.
