Techie for MBA

The most frequently asked question in every application form to a MBA course is 'Why MBA?'

This is an interesting question with a very obvious answer. People do MBA to either diversify or to progress faster in their chosen field. Depending on what is their answer, they elaborate while trying not to say to make money using keywords like learning, real world, corporate world, and at the same time using the word community service.

Nevertheless, I must think of an appropriate answer to this question. I know why I want to do an MBA, but at the same time, how do I express it is the question. Any inputs with respect to this?

Gokarna/Aghanashini/Honnavar trip

Bored of breating the polluted air in Bangalore. A change was long overdue. Finally off to Uttara Kannada, mostly places without mobile networks, absolutely no internet, and amazingly fresh air!

The fight starts now

2009 was the lucky year I decided to take up CAT again, after 4 long years. I did put in effort, made sure I covered up my weakness of 2005. And probably get the 2 elusive calls of 2005. But, then CAT 2009 happened. One disaster after the other, I realised the easiest way of doing an MBA from a decent college had vaporised for me. Now, starts the real fight. Have decided this year is going to be the one where I will be putting fight for a MBA app. And this is not going to be easy given my background. For people who know me, what I mean by the previous statement.

Nevertheless, a lot of things have to go into the app. First of all, the GMAT prep, then the GMAT, the app college shortlist. The final college list. The essays, the recos.

I will try to keep this updated at each step.

Currently step 1 is done, booking a GMAT date, June 12th will be the day. Also, have a rought shortlist. Needs mending though.
