It’s almost done. A year during which 570 of us went through one giant roller-coaster, hand in hand, shoulder to shoulder. ISB has provided a fertile ground for 570 day dreamers who landed on campus with myriad aspirations. Every single student had a visual image of what they will look like once ISB ends. For most, the dream has already come through but for some its still in the works.
Placement season at ISB is in full swing. Days 1 and 2 are done and Day 3 of placements is lurking around the corner. The mood is mixed, with objectivity and emotions playing their part in making people laugh and cry both in happiness and sadness. It’s feels like it’s been really long since people on campus discussed anything other than jobs. This is the moment of reckoning. This is the time to put our ISB essays into action and materialize the thoughts we passionately spoke about in our interviews.
I got news today that I have been accepted into the Entrepreneurship Development Initiative (EDI) – ISB’s incubator. I spent a whole year exploring various business ideas, and now feel that I am very close to choosing one that will dominate the next 5-10 years of my life. It now feels as if ISB was just a start to an exciting new journey for me. Having spent the past 12 years in the US, this now feels like a whole new start. Here’s to the 570 dreamers and their unwavering resolve to turbo-charge their careers and as a result, their lives.
