After completing the Master’s programme in philosophy and public policy, I resumed work at Nanyang Technological University in Singapore, where I am involved in strategic planning and performance management. I am very happy that I did the programme. It has exposed me to new and interesting ideas, concepts and perspectives, and at times, forced me to step out of my comfort zone. The knowledge and experience acquired have been useful not just at work but also in other spheres of interaction. I now have a good base from which to explore further issues of philosophy and public policy on my own.  I also feel more confident about moving into a research-oriented line of work in the future.
