I promise to keep this one as short as possible – its not going to be as long-winded as the earlier one about term 1. Mainly because the only thing that changed was the subjects we were being taught now. Let me see – they were Competitive Strategy (Compstrat), Decision Modelling and Optimisation (DMOP), Global Economics (GLEC) and Marketing Decision Making (Markstrat). [I cheated – there was no way I was going to remember the subjects I did soo long ago]
Actually that’s one of the chief features of life at ISB – the days move along so fast that they’re a blur – but when you look back they seem so far away – probably because so much has happened since.
One of the more interesting parts of the term was the markstrat simulation – where each study group was allotted a firm and we had to compete to gain profits, market share, etc. Good fun !
Anyways – the term started with the skies clouding over, and impending rains on the horizon. The campus looked beautiful as the sky simply accentuated the buildings.
And our first rains – when the mirror pools filled over and we got back to our childhood – making paper boats and playing J
The start of the term was a haze – with all sorts of activities including elections for the extended GSB. (I guess I forgot to mention the GSB elections in the first term – but lets leave that for now – too much to write, too much to say . . . .. ) Well the election results came in and we had another reason to celebrate – probably the largest party in D-Lounge till date. A night full of partying – we were at it till early morning.
Ashish and Anurag HAD to be in all photographs . . . .
And we have our marketing club president (Kedar) making faces . . . .
Another good thing that happened: I took out my camera and started clicking photographs. So here are a few I took from the campus itself:
But that was not all – our class found out the meaning of “BORING” classes and sights like these were two a penny.
Like I promised – this was going to be short and sweet – even though I probably missed out describing quite a few parties and events. On the whole however Term 2 was very similar to Term 1.
