Learnings from MBA- Part I

The best thoughts hit when you are sitting on the toilet seat. Suddenly realized how much disconnected from the world I have become sitting there today. Many people whom I talked are nowhere to be found to nowadays. Have missed one friend's wedding, going to miss 2 more soon. Lots has changed, MBA has changed a lot. Just to summarize the learnings from the 18 odd months till now,

- Acads, well remember a bit of Business Strategy, Consult is still fresh, a bit of marketing fundas which have been repeated enough number of times, few of the Finance ka fundas, thats mostly it. Haan, liked supply chain and a couple of visiting faculties too, but thats it.

- Ability to take Stress, or the non-ability to take it. It actually depends on you that how much you set your limits as. I set it very high, to levels which I cant take, and it shows. Its difficult, and you know that you cant take anymore. But just 2-3 months to go...

- Anger Management or the lack of it: For a person who claimed to be Anger Free since Two Thousand Three ( 2-3 instances) the worst part is to abuse daily and shout at other people which is like a ritual to me nowadays

- Networking they said happens in MBA, honestly all your old pals, relatives etc. stop talking to you given the lack of interest you show in them, so its just you and you forever after that

- Sense, or lack of it missing in the Top .01% of the country sitting along with you for 2 years. What else should I tell...

Would be putting down a few more during my final days here. If its going to be like this in work post MBA too, either I would retire in 2-3 years. Or even sooner.

People planning for MBA, dont do it, kills your life.

Dude doesn't sound like the Desi of 1st yr..he was much too enthusiastics about everythin.. perhaps u've actually burdened urself little too much. Pehle itna bolta tha ki bardasht nahi hota tha, aajkal teri chuppi bardasht nahi hoti!

i can identify with it completely, and do not want to be a part of it. i do not want to prove myself every second day.

Networking in MBA = Losing touch with old pals!

desiii ! na re, will disagree on this post of yours. everything ultimately depends upon you as a person. for me, mba was 2 yrs of fun and learning,and i will emphasize on the fun part more ;) as for old pals, good friends will always stick by. I am still in touch with bachpan ke friends :)
ultimately, YOU decided wht to do, mba is just another thing.

desi kabhi bor nahi ho sakta itna to mujhe maloom hai, may be momentarily you are feeling like that but on the long run you too have enjoyed the last 2 years. And what about those days when you worked hard to get in here....jaaa thoda ja ke so le sab thakaan nikal jaayegi.
