Some UN-forgettable Moments

  • When I met in person Dr. APJ Abdul Kalam
  • When I got 4/4 GPA in my elective course Elements of Management Consulting
  • When I sat along with the Director and a Chief Guest and participated in a short discussion on a company's international aspirations!
  • When I received scolding from the Director for something I was not directly responsible for (It was a Déjà vu from good old Engineering days :))
  • At 1 AM when the group had no idea what to present the next day; Perumal (a group member) suggests an idea and later it becomes the insight for the classes applauded by Professor :)
  • At 4 AM, the group fighting on formatting issues of a project report after daunting discussions and heated arguments :)
  • Creating a presentation while the Professor is teaching and presenting to the class after the lecture and getting appreciation from the Professor ;) ;)
  • When I became the Secretary of Students' Council

Some events I wish never happened!  
  • Burning few bridges and loosing a good mentor and friend over petty issues and ego clashes :(
  • Screwing up during an important public facing event
Some Lessons learn-t the hard way!
  1. There is no such thing as 'free lunch'
  2. It doesn't matter how much you deserve; all that matters is how much luck is with you
  3. Be assertive; need not be aggressive; most of the time no harm in being aggressive also!
  4. You can learn any number of leadership theories; it takes experience to become one!
  5. It's OK to be little selfish!; there is no such thing as utilitarian thought though they teach about it a lot event in B Schools...
Few things I missed during B School life
  • International Exchange Program
  • Hostel Life
  • I thought I will become fluent in Hindi at least here; but didn't happen :)
 Some Professors whose classes I enjoyed the most
Some courses that kept me on my toes everyday
 Some courses I wish I never took!
  • Telecom Strategy
  • Quantitative Methods II (Operations Research, LPP etc.)
  • Management Control Systems
  • Services Marketing

Some courses I wish I studied more seriously!
  • Corporate Finance
  • Quantitative Methods I
