ISB (or the Indian School of Business, Hyderabad) has been the best year of my life. I am proud of the school and at the same time its biggest critic! But in all, VERY VERY passionate about the school’s past, present and future. Someday I would love to go back to school and contribute in my own way! Maybe as dean! :)
Each year, I usually mentor 6-10 students and help them in their ISB admission process. Starting from an objective assessment of whether ISB is the right school for them, leading up to essay review and interview preparation. And I do so because for me the incoming batch is the most important investment that ISB will make for the year!
I dont charge for this and dont intend to either, in the future. For me, this is my small way of contributing back to the school. And I am proud of the success rate (both in terms of candidates admitted and post-ISB candidate performance) that has come through this exercise. I am also part of the admissions panel, both at Delhi and Hyderabad.
I would love to help anyone out there looking at ISB seriously as an MBA school. Please do feel free to get in touch.
