Benefits of Academic Networking

First, you get unsolicited offers from prestigious journals to submit your manuscripts to. (Research)

Now there is a complimentary textbook and an upgrade in your status. (Teaching)

I hope this is wonder what is next.


Other news: my Singaporean roommate in undergrad is now in Chicago for his MBA, while my BMT buddy is heading to the Northeast for the same degree. Both are fully sponsored by their organizations. Another is in his final semester and will be leaving for home soon to serve his bond.

"Pantheon of Titans" indeed! A decade later, we are still competing with one another for one-upmanship and bragging rights. Just like them.

PhDs vs. the MBAs. Some companies take both; Imagine being colleagues in the end. Hur hur.
