Welcome to my blog! This is where I’ll blog about my experiences at the Mannheim Business School (MBS), Germany. If you are here to find out to understand more about the reasons why one would choose MBS, to walk through day in the life of an MBS-student, to get a flavour of what life-on-campus is all about, you are absolutely in the right place. Welcome on-board and happy reading!
I am a working professional from Mumbai, India and have 9.5 years of experience in the Information Technology (IT) industry in the roles of a programmer, solutions designer, team-lead, business analyst and manager. My last position was with the Shoppers Stop group, India, where I was heading the IT-function for Crossword Bookstores.
An MBA has been top-of-the-mind for me for a while now. However, it wasn’t until 2009 when I took the first steps towards making this dream of mine into reality. I came across Mannheim Business School, via the Economist rankings and my searches for a German business school. In my search for the business-school of my choice, I had the following criteria; a full-time, 1-year program, a diverse, international program, a program that offered a broad range of electives and a school in Europe, preferably Germany. This was because I have been learning German for around 5 years now and really wanted to make use of it. An MBA from a leading German business school would take me 1 step closer to working in Germany and using my knowledge of the German language. MBS fulfilled all of the above criteria and I was ready to take my 1st steps towards the school. Some inquiries and discussions with the Program-Management and alumni, later, I applied to MBS. 2 interviews and 1 case-study later, the next steps were taken towards my destination- Mannheim Business School was the chosen one! 🙂
