Welcome to the transition between the 2nd stop and the 3rd stop of the IE-Global MBA knowledge train.

After a gruesome week of writing the final paper for Strategy, studying for the Cost Accounting quiz and many sleepless nights,  today our 2nd module finally ended. From tomorrow the third module begins for which we have to read 4 chapters and a few exercises for the FIRST SESSION. That’s right… IE has sworn to give us something to read for the next 318 days, 7632 hours  and 457925 minutes till our graduation on Dec 19th.

But let me backtrack a little here using the IE-Online method.

I am sure all IE-students are familiar with this interface. Let me take you back to “Past”,  to the first stop on this IE-GMBA journey .

In September 2010, the GMBA-train started from the opening session at Madrid. There were a total of 64 travelers from 33 different nationalities (felt like a U.N. conference). All of us were excited, a bit nervous but very keen to imbibe the vast amounts of knowledge IE had to offer us. We all knew it wasn’t going to be easy, but we also had no idea how hard it was going to be 🙂

The first week was aimed at getting to know each other. All of us were divided into Period 1 and Period 2 groups which were further segmented into different teams. We attended interesting workshops such as negotiation techniques (I wish they gave us more of this class), coaching, networking, teamwork techniques and career development. We would start at 9 am and finish workshops, classes (Financial Accounting and Marketing Management), socialize, have a beer, get back to our rooms, do homework, prepare for the next day and go to bed around 12:00 – 1:00 am. That’s when I realized .. H*ly C*ap… this MBA is not going to be easy. But let me stress, not even a minute of these classes was boring.

Anyway, since this post is getting a bit long now,  I’ll sign off  as this IE-GMBA train covers everything from snowy fields and rocky mountains to hot desert (until it arrives at its final destination – Graduation day)…. This train will share experiences of the people traveling on this journey.

Stay Tuned!!!!
