Second Year Blues

You're right. I haven't posted in a loooooooong time, and there's a very good reason for that. If the 1st year was full of academics, the 2nd year is only slightly (really, very slightly) easier in terms of workload - purely because you get to choose what classes you want, and there's a couple of hours free each day due to flexible schedules.

But what makes this year crazy is all the time that goes into organizing activities for clubs (I co-run the Asian Business Club), job search, projects etc. Specially the projects. Most courses that I've selected this term dont have exams, instead they have projects. With different teams. Imagine trying to match the schedules of, on an average, 6*5 = 30 people in order to complete your projects on time. Of course, all of them have to be due the same week.

Anyways, did I mention we had the chance to talk to Conchita Martinez? One of my courses this term is Marketing of Experiences, Innovative Concepts and Media (MECMI) .. and there was this case on how Maria Sharapova's image was marketed to companies in order to differentiate her from compatriot (and equally hot!) Anna Kournikova. In order to get a first-person view of the situation, the professor invited Conchita Martinez and her agent, where we grilled her on everything, from how it was to beat Navratilova at the Wimbledon, to her present day assignments. Awesome.

Finally, I'm kinda annoyed that there's now COW (Comment of the Week) in the 2nd year.. so many good comments going to waste! Tsk tsk.

  • Hey Ashwyn,

    I have been reading your blog for a couple of months now. I have applied to IESE for '08 entry. I was wondering if I could pick your brain about the IESE experience a little bit.
