Quarter 3 - A Retrospective

This quarter was the fastest so far and most hectic!

Four subjects, some of them being very attractive high-fi-turned dullest ones and some other good old ones. Principles of Marketing was one of the most awaited subjects and it didn't dissappoint me at all. The professor was too good with all fun, in-class excercises and case studies. We got the bible of marketing - Kotler :) and the professor was also special in a sense she was a disciple of Kotler during Phd :p

 The subject I hated the most in this quarter was Operations Research. I don't know why, the subject seemed to me interesting in the beginning; may be Prof ;) The approach of the professor was very different. He wanted to build the basics, but it went to high mathematical stuffs! So I was completely lost and ended up in  a 'C' grade ;)

Another subject from accounting, this time a better one Managerial Accounting. We were able to relate it to old engineering days. All about production, costs, budgeting, so on and so forth...The professor was very senior. I liked hearing from him about his professional experiences rather than the concepts :)  With him, already 3 professors who have authored various books that is being followed in B Schools have already taught me!

The last one was Law. I wished I will be a geek in law arguing whatever I can from a legal perspective. But I was disappointed. The professor just opened the door to a never-ending world of laws and legal systems. I got a basic understanding of how our legal system works, the Constitution, so on and so forth. The guest lectures were amazing.

Thats pretty much a gist of what we had in Q4!
