Imagine my pleasant surprise when I got 96 percentile!
Although the score was good enough to try for some pretty good colleges, it was certainly not enough to get an invitation to an IIM interview.
However, within a year, my interest abated somewhat.
I was never a hardworking student, unless it be the week before the exam, and the prospect of two years of study immediately after graduation did not appeal to me.
In Kanbay, I observed that senior executives, above the designation of Delivery Manager, all had MBAs.
That reinforced in me the desire to get one for myself, and definitely from one of the top 3 IIMs.Some students have remarked that university administration could be “more supportive of the MBA program,” but, overall, does a decent job.The 2018-2019 year will usher in a new dean, and students report being “excited for the potential new vision the school” will pursue.By then, I had started work at Kanbay (now part of Capgemini) in Hyderabad and actually started being in the corporate world.I was living in shared accommodation with a college friend who had also moved to Hyderabad to take up a job with Infosys, and another one working with Satyam (luckily, he left before the Ramalinga Raju fraud came to light).Sourya Biswas got the ingredients right and two bschools offered him a full-ride (100% scholarship).But along the way, he had his share of highs and lows.Through participation in Net Impact, students are able to participate in sustainability research via elective courses - Values-based Multinational Management; Marketing Ethics; U. Global Compact; International Business Ethics; Business of Sustainability; Sustainability: Accounting and Reporting The Mendoza College weaves sustainability issues into core courses in multiple disciplines at the graduate and undergraduate level.Faculty participate in conferences and workshops on sustainability, including the University?My first attempt was disastrous, but as things would unfold, the entire examination was canceled because of a paper leak.My second attempt was better but I did not have any hopes, considering I hadn’t prepared at all whereas my classmates were attending TIME classes.
