The honeymoon period, if ever there was one, is over. It is now time to deliver.
We are no longer the incoming batch – we are the incumbent batch.
Our first major team task was due last week. In a semi-professional setting we presented our ideas on some critical challenges facing different industries – from packaging to alzeihmer’s, from insurance to energy – everything was on the menu.
We didn’t have much time to relax as the next task is upon us sooner than we realized. We go into the now-famous integrative exercise starting tomorrow. What it really means, we don’t know yet. What we do know is that it will be a first opportunity for us to apply all the principles learnt over the last 10 weeks to a business problem in a 48 hour marathon.
More on integrative when we come out of it on Saturday.
I also had the opportunity this week to meet some of the MBA applicants and it was a delightful experience. It is hard to believe that I am already on this side of the table. It feels like yesterday when I hit the submit button on my application and waited with bated breath for the outcome. Time does really fly.
To those of you applying this year, I wish all the best and hope to see some of you on campus soon.
