FAQ

Happy new year buddies.  yeah I know its long time since I blogged , I went back home to India and spent a great time with my family during the December vacation. All that was possible because of my summer Internship offer which I got by Nov end.

The internship recruitment generally start around Jan , I was lucky to get it much earlier. Dec holidays is the time people spend preparing for interviews. So far , so good. Many companies came to campus last week. Number of finance and consulting firms and few tech and marketing jobs have been posted so far. This week, people are busy interviewing. I hope everyone hears a good news soon.

And during my dec holidays , I also did one good job. I answered , skyped few Rotman prospective candidates on their “why”, “how” and “ROI” questions. I thought it would be good if I consolidate them and post online. And so here it goes

by the way, these are my personal opinions. Talk to other Rotmanites to understand a holistic picture Continue reading

25% MBA is done, What have I Learnt so far ?

Standard

Time flies really quick when you do an MBA. A crazy, hectic 4 months in my life and I enjoyed every bit of craziness, ups and downs that it gave me. Yes, we are done with our first term final exam as of yesterday.

I wanted to summarise all that I learnt so far.

Integrative thinking @ Rotman

Rotman is known for Integrative thinking and a well integrated curriculum. That was reflected in each and every class that I attended.  For example, we had a whole day solving a case for 2 courses in foundation term (Data modeling and Model based decision making). That was one of our assignments in Foundation term. But in our first term, we had “Statistics for managers” which took the same case and showed how to solve the case using statistical tools. It was interesting to learn that, the same problem that you solved few months ago could be solved in a better way using stats. Continue reading

Rotman Dean

Our new dean was announced yesterday. http://www.businessweek.com/articles/2013-12-05/rotman-goes-to-the-bank-of-canada-for-new-dean

Excited to see what he will be doing to enrich the Rotman experience. The school had a board which was “looking for” dean for quite sometime and finally they found the best.

I was surprised to know that few 2nd years students were also part of the board. Cool right?!! Students choosing their dean.

All of us are gearing up for the term exams (in 2 weeks) and i will be blogging about “Entrepreneurship @ Rotman” in the next post

Real cases and Real learning

Standard

In previous post i had mentioned about how in our accounting class we were dealing with live cases. Yesterday it went way ahead when we had 50 people from Credit risk division at Scotiabank who came in to guide us on a credit risk management case that they had prepared.

So whats all that about?

In accounting class we are analysing financial statements and figuring out the company performance. But i always thought how does this fit in a bigger picture? Because most of MBAs will not intend to practise as accountants. The credit risk management case from Scotiabank case was one answer i found. Continue reading
