Ankit MalhotraWith our heads held high we all are eagerly waiting for the time when good news of placements start flowing in...with fingers crossed, keeping in mind the current turmoil, we all are hopeful to end it on a good note.

Information Technology Management
GMBA - May 08

The last nine months have been full of fun, excitement and not to forget the hard-work that has gone behind making the best out of the limited time available. I am sure most of us would take these nice memories along and cherish them for life long.

With Dubai being the financial hub, the learning was tremendous. The IIPs involved going out during the Ramadan period to carry out the market research, capture as much primary data as possible and then actually sit back and try making sense out of it. Though we did our best to get a lot of surveys being filled, I am sure each of us have their own story to share...Be it being kept waiting for hours for an interview or being ignored completely thinking we are there to steal some jobs.

Coming to Singapore, we all were wondering, on our way from airport to the hostel, that is this greenery for real or has been intentionally brought in from some other place. It took me almost a week to come to terms with the fact that this place is really green, unlike Dubai.
But both places have their own charm, speak their own language and try and teach us a lot as to only vision combined with true will to do things can actually make things happen.

On this note, I would like to get back to my dissertation synopsis, with a promise to come back and write in more.

Peace and Cheers!!!

Welcome to your respective new campuses folks. The cultural shock after the cross-over is all to evident... like it was for us way back in GMBA-07! In fact that's the beauty of the GMBA program. The ability of comprehend how much geographic distance can change attitudes, skills, financial spending patterns and the overall business landscape... the ability to stop 'thinking small' & see the 'Bigger Picture'. Sometimes people ask me what's the point of studying in the twin-city model through a decidedly Indian B-School. My response remains the same... "You will have to go through the entire course to get the point and understand the true value".

Glad to see that the regular blog posts continue on this official blog. It keeps us alumni updated about the latest on campus. Good work bloggers and Best Wishes for the Upcoming Placements! Would like to see some more pics of both campuses. Especially the new developments after 2007.
