B-School Selection / Motivation

Over the past few years of mentoring there are always students who keep in touch even after they graduate from b-school. Some to express gratitude once they get their final placement, some to sort out their post MBA dilemmas and others just to have a nice chat about everything under the sun :-). Likewise this year a student of mine who graduated this March, wrote to me saying that he felt investing in an MBA […]

B-School Selection / Motivation / WAT-GD-PI

Over the past few weeks, I was travelling around taking sessions at the IMS NAW, which explains why the posts have become sporadic. Now that we are done with the Achievers Workshops there is more breathing space to do some writing that captures the essence of the closing session that I took at the NAW. The IIM interview season has already started and aspirants would be trying to get as many insights as they can right from how […]

B-School Selection / CAT / Motivation

April is the cruelest month is how one of the greatest modernist poems starts off and it is kind of applicable to all those who have taken CAT 2017 and are awaiting the results.

CAT 2016: GD-PI Toolkit

B-School Selection / CAT / WAT-GD-PI

Dear CAT 2016 Achievers, Like we did last year, we have created a folder with articles curated to cover topics that might pop in this year’s WAT-GD-PIs. The articles are not easy reads by far since they are from sources such as EPW and McKinsey. More than trying to agree or disagree with the views expressed, it would be best to look at them to get a more diverse set of examples and also incorporate view […]
