(Dedicated to our Financial Management class)

Tempus Fugit: it feels like we just boarded the IE-GMBA train yesterday but in reality we are already the GMBA seniors.  Forums, Videoconferences, team meetings, case studies, powerpoint presentations have become a habit now as much as reading the news and watching TV!. As Jim Rohn said “Motivation is what gets you started. Habit is what keeps you going.”

True to these words, we have persevered and have reached term 2.

What will be special about Term 2?

To begin with, we all had to leave our old teams as new teams were formed for Term 2. A third course (Entrepreneurship – a separate team is formed for this class depending on the student’s interest) has been introduced in addition to other two courses ( Financial Management and Operations Management ). Yes, it will be a lot of work but most of the people in the class are looking forward for especially the Entrepreneurship class. Here we will get to work on our business idea and create a business plan with the help of our professor and team mates. Given that IE is reputed for its focus on entrepreneurship, this is one of the main reasons the Entrepreneurs joined the GMBA. So far it has been fun with very interesting case discussions and hopefully it’ll only get better.

Formula for Term 2:

A full time job + 3 courses + 2 teams + 2 * Team meetings + 2 * Video conferences + 3 * forum discussions + A business plan = Term 2

The best experience for me..as part of the GMBA 2009 Alumni, it was a nice experience in my life that helped me to grow up.

That’s good Victor. Would love to hear more about your experiences from 2009. It will help us current and future students.
