So, the cat is out. And I am not searching for it now.
Last week my final semester result got declared. And it was a great feeling. A happy one indeed. I am now a MBA in Marketing & International Business. These two years [2008-2010] have been truly special. I still recall the day when I came to Pune -Symbiosis [SIIB] - Hinjewadi for the first time for my GD / PI.
At that time I thought will I get through? If yes, will I be able to handle the pressure? Can I put in more than 6-8 hours of classroom teaching and an equal number of study hours? Will I be able to get an MBA? Will I Pass?
Now, when I look back I simply smile. I have passed, got an MBA and yes it’s mid - 2010. Time as always has moved and I too have moved from this phase of my life. It was a great journey. Unique people unique ways of working. Relationships, heartbreaks, moments of smile, achievements, recognition, job , great friends for life , networking, LinkedIn , FB and a whole lot of skill set that I acquired .
When I joined my MBA preparatory classes like any other student I too thought it to be a tough walk. Education, in India, especially, is competitive. This makes it further tough. The amount of hard work I have done, the number of things I have been through have made me all the more mature and understanding. It’s a great experience and I certainly now know the difference between a full time MBA and a part-time one.
I too have accumulated so much of “gyaan” like others that I can talk / speak / share about anything and everything under the sun. Something which MBA’s are master of.
It was a great time and as they say all’s well that ends well.
So cheers to the batch of 2008-10 and a big thanks to my, now, Alma matter – Symbiosis Institute of International Business, SIIB, Pune, India.
Will miss and cherish ……
