Life will never be the same again (part ii)

Last day of my classes at ISB.

If someone asked me at gun point what i learnt with having spent INR 1.5 million, incurring high opportunity cost, losing an year of experience and toiling late into the nights, i dont think i can say either this or that.

because the purpose of the program, at least to me, is not 'necessarily' getting to know strategy or marketing or economics. the purpose is more to get an overall perspective of business. more importantly, the program would have failed its purpose if it had not increased my intellectual curiosity. there cannot be any takeaway greater than increased intellectual curiosity.

my salute to the spirit of education, to the institution which gave opportunity to scores of people like me who had missed an opportunity to go to a b-school earlier in life, to the professors who do great benefit to the society through their research and teaching, and to my colleagues who have the ability to see life in a million more ways that i can imagine.

as i was getting into this school in April 2005, i conjectured that life will never be the same again. now, having gone through this one year, i can say confidently that, yes, life will never be the same again for me.
