Back to School

Hi Friends,
I want to share a good news with you. I am delighted to inform you that I have received an admission offer from the S. P. Jain Institute of Management & Research, Mumbai (SPJIMR) for class of 2009 Full time 1-year MBA (Post Graduate Programme in Management) program. Post Graduate Programme in Management (PGPM), is a one year, full-time, residential programme. The mission of the programme is to create and nurture value-based future leaders taking on higher management roles in transforming organizations.
Something about the course, this is taken as it is from the www.spjimr.org : "SPJIMR perceived the need of the industry for thought leaders in middle level management and successfully endeavored to create the PGPM course. The programme, now in its fifth year of inception, has challenged the paradigm of conventional part time courses for working executives. Participants gain management perspectives through an innovative pedagogy of experiential learning and enhanced peer interaction. The programme offers a platform for learning and exchange of ideas with expert faculty. The renowned faculty at the institute facilitates innovative thinking through practical academic inputs and thought-provoking case studies. The programme also has a strong focus on values and ethics."

As part of the course- we had 4-days orientation classes, where we got to meet the professors, fellow students and our seniors. It was an amazing experience going back to school again after more than 5 years. Mumbai is a nice place, this was first time when I got to stay in the city for more than couple of days. The campus is so green and nice. Everything in the city is so accessible, but we heard from our seniors that its going to be a hectic year ahead. But I am sure I will be able to find time to run... and there couldn't be any place better than JUHU beach in Mumbai for running. The beach is at walkable distance, just 2KM from from the campus. I have made many good friends at SPJ. I am really looking forward for a great time. Will keep you guys posted.
