“B-schools are places where pebbles are polished”
When you enter into a B-SCHOOL you have fairly accurate idea concerning what you want to do with your life. Yes it’s a tough transition but this is the time that can truly make you an individual as you will be introduced to various things and get exposure of highs and lows.
During years we all have always relied on our parents for support, but when we land up at this stage probably we will be on our own and its only us who can push our own self harder or in whichever manner we like to do.
Leaving the comfort amenities of home when I entered into UBS, I entered with a firm belief of being sensitive to my own gravity and the main thing on my head was “MY FUTURE”. Commuting from home to totally different atmosphere was a dramatic change for me.But at UBS, it makes you feel more like home & less isolated.
In no time,i felt B-schools can make you realize few things,things that are probably in common encountered by every student of a B-school.
You will be left on your own here.Their is your new found freedom and you have to make use of it wisely without losing ends. Support is always available,you just have to make a use out of it.
The most important thing you encounter is the workload,large volume of deadlines and assignments which are always piling up in front of your eyes.There will be endless nights spend studying leading you towards frustrations but as they say,things always appear better in mornings & reward for hardwork is success. Hang in there because this is just the start of a long jouney.
In that journey,you will always find people,appears to be your friend. You will make a lot of new friends. Select them with patience because your company affects your overall development.Continue to be yourself. Don’t strike a pose or play the role of someone you’re not.
As these years are the most crucial year to learn and grow. Make sure you find and explore numerous opportunities at every step. From late night studies to early morning classes, from guest lecture to campus events make sure you engross yourself in everything. Try & get to involve yourself in everything while you work towards your aim & future.
It is a time filled with anticipation, some anxiety, and wonderful discoveries.It might be the beginning of your self-definition process. Going to B-school is as much about finding out who you really are as it is about getting that degree.
