Guys..sorry for not posting and updating you all about the happenings here. After Kotler’s visit we had exams, assignments, case studies, (ofcoz as u all know these things are part of life here…) break for 2 days and a ban on blogspots for a while. So our blog team could’nt post any updates. Anyways as now we are back, more postings will be happening..check out this space..
Last few days were very hectic.
– Back to back exams (Optimization mid term, Micro Economics end term)..
– Corporate Strategy “Michael Porter’s Corporate Strategy” case study (Cooper industries, its a mother of all case studies w.r.t Mergers and Aquisition strategies..)…
– the horrifying hurdle for us all is the Macro Economics viva by our most terrorising/intellectual prof Dr. Rakesh Singh (as said earlier we all sweetly call him Rocky)..
– and last but not the least Guest Lectures by Dr. Bala Iyer on “Google’s future strategies”, Mr. Ramesh Arjunji, Associate Director Health Economics/Clinical Outcomes Research (HECOR) on “Pricing of new drugs”….
Now we are a bit considerably free (although we have an end term this 24th on Financial Management 2, this break of 2 days is a huge relaxation from rigorous schedule..)
BTW here is the testimonial from one of the students about the Viva experience…
Wow…. What a wonderful day has it been today…. Jus amazing…today has been my best day at Great Lakes so far.. the amount of knowledge that I received today is beyond imagination…
Not to miss out on the Viva… It was intellectually so so so stimulating… the question that were fired were so very intriguing and testing my knowledge in Micro, Macro, Finance, Trade and what not ?????
It was such pleasure waiting from 1.00 clock till 5.30 P.m to get my turn to “rock” the viva… huh jus hope that we get more such opportunities to have such purposeful interactions with such high quality professors…
It was indeed worth every minute of the wait… My answers, I guess were so very good that Dr.MR. Professor Rakesh Singh did not even let them to be completed…..(prob that’s time management)
Anyways wish all u guys who have it on Sunday all the Best for a thrilling and drilling session…
