Term break has come and gone at ISB, faster than we could say break. After the hectic schedule of the first term we have to contend with Term 2 which is supposedly has the most packed schedule atleast in terms of the amount of reading, one has to do before each class. Even a super quick reader would have his or her reading skills being put to test just to keep up with the mandatory reading, other recommended reading notwithstanding.
Any how, we probably could do with some strategic skimming of the course. Ironically competitive strategy is one of the courses on offer in term -2 (probably should have been part of the first term, to help us all prepare for the grind ahead). Not that we need to be more competitive. The junta here is as competitive as can be but we surely could use some strategizing for the exams and on how to tackle.
That said, I did manage to skim through the introductions to all the four courses and am really excited about it. Besides comp., strategy we have macro eco.. (aka global economics), marketing and decision making (or Mark II as knows in US schools) and decision models and optimization. The faculty is great (atleast on paper). After putting up a decent show in the first, would need to get my 'A' (all puns intended) game in this term.
Amidst all the partying and playing in this break, did manage to catch a glimpse of the city, courtesy one of the local students. The weather has been excellent all this while so absolutely no excuse to complain.
Life is good...
