I began the DBA journey with a dream, ambition, curiosity and anxiety. During the first year, I learned to manage the balance among my 3 worlds - Business, Academic and Social. In the second year, I deepened my knowledge in Corporate Governance and enhanced my leadership skills. To go back to student life is challenging and demanding but interesting and satisfying!
