So why am I setting myself up? My curriculum is equivalent to a PHD in mathematics and business. Alright you can argue what the equivalent of a PHD is, I won’t be reading papers and creating new knowledge, but I will get a grounding in the tips and tricks of scientific thought. The kind that make up a textbook. I also will cover a sound business education. I argue that PHDs are developed from deep reading of textbooks and not from reading journals of current knowledge forefronts. But why. I’ve always loved school and learning. I’m not much of a socialite though I would like to spend more time in the direction of being social. And the choice really is a path not a destination. I’ll figure out where I fit in long before I finish the curriculum. I would like to change the way I think, develop more methods and tools of thought.
