Term 3 begins tomorrow

I am back @ ISB and the first thing I saw today morning as I was walking towards my room was a batchmate of mine carrying a heavy load of books. Was shocked to hear that they were for him and not for his kid … which of course meant that I also needed to buy those books. Just came back after buying 3 of the 4 required texts. Believe me … they are real bulky.

The subjects we have this term and the profs who will be teaching us are as follows:
1) Operations Management – Prof. Sunil Chopra (Kellogg) / Prof. Sudhakar Deshmukh (Kellogg)
2) Managerial Accounting – Prof. Sri Sridharan (Kellogg)
3) Entrepreneurship – Prof. S Venkataraman (Darden) / Prof. Ramakrishna Velamuri (IESE)
4) Corporate Finance – Prof. Rangarajan Sundaram (Stern) & Bhagwan Chowdhry (UCLA)
5) Leadership Development Program – Prof. Rajeshwar Upadhyay

To find out more about the profs, click here or google them out. You can get a brief outline of the courses here.

We can also take an additional elective this term. For those of us who opt for the ELPs (projects), heavy work will start soon.

I think the chartered accountants (CAs) are going to have a ball this term as two of the subjects (2 and 4 above) will just be a cake-walk for them. The others are going to have to slog it out.

There is so much to be read before going to the class tomorrow … no prof is going to discuss less than 5 chapters tomorrow in the book he has prescribed and that is an awful lot to be covered. I am in no mood to read all of that right now …. I mean what a pleasant weather …. heard its been raining here continuously since Friday. Hope its still raining in Chennai …. Chennai-ites desperately need it. Don’t know when I will get a chance to go home to Delhi … don’t think I will get one before the course ends 😦

    off the screen. Can somebody else please provide feedback annd let me know if this
    is happening to them too? This couhld be a issxue with
    my intertnet browser because I’ve had this happen before. Kudos
