Abhinav Charan, one of our UK-based bloggers, reflects on his year at business school and his MBA objectives
Chronicling MBA time is no easy task especially because the volume and velocity of events tends to cause entropy. One would imagine that the Easter term at Cambridge would be an ideal setting for punting and Pimm’s. The assumption is fair and square but there is so much more to experience.
Abhinav Charan is coming to the end of his MBA programme at Judge Cambridge. The past few weeks have been a whirlwind of travel, competitions and listening to speakers from a variety of sectors
When Will.i.am retweeted Professor Allegre Hadida’s FT interview link to his 11 million followers, it reminded me of Malcolm Gladwell’s theories on ‘social epidemics’. It takes the gumption of very special individuals to make the ‘law of few’ come out alive.
Now that the suspense over the 2014 MBA rankings is over, it is worth analysing the competitive landscape that we exist in: the competition to get into a business school, the competition to perform well at academics, and the competition to further build careers.
The speed of time is incredible. The Michaelmas term is over, meaning I have completed eight courses, one venture project and attended multiple leadership lectures. This list, of course, is the bare minimum. To celebrate this milestone, many of my classmates have already dotted their presence across continental Europe and beyond.
As Abhinav settles into his MBA programme he discovers that his days are filled with business school organised events, but there was still time to enjoy the fireworks
Three weeks into his MBA programme and Abhinav is thoroughly enjoying himself. Although the workload is heavy, there is still time to attend a formal ball
The start of an MBA programme is always an exciting time. Although the programme at Judge has only been runing a week Abhinav already feels settled and ready to tackle the vast amount of work.
With only a week to go before the start of his Judge Business School MBA, Abhinav Charan is excited by the months ahead
