And thus began the much awaited MBA course..

Hello people !

After many delays, lost couriers, redirected speed posts, angry phone calls to the SP Jain Institute of Management & Research (SPJIMR - for future reference) and several trips to the courier office, I finally got my PGDM PFC material (Post Graduate Diploma in Management - Pre Foundation Course) which flags off two years of books, studies, assignments, drudgery and (hopefully) fun ! :D

Contents of the PFC :

  1. Fat book on Business Statistics
  2. Fat ugly book on Management Science with spreadshets
  3. Fatter, uglier book on Financial Accounting by Stice & Stice ! (HMPH ! Looks like a Stice family conspiracy to make my life miserable ! May a bird with an upset stomach relieve it's droppings on the Stice residence.. wherever it is !)
  4. Miscellaneous hand written notes by professors on each of those topics. Looks like a must-read (as a rule - always be scared of professors who prefix "Dr" to their names :D)

The whole ordeal has been scheduled to last for 30+12+(not known) number of hours for each of the above respectively.

So that leaves me with umm.. 6 days (leaving for Mumbai on 16th evening) to prepare for the test that awaits me on campus. Further analysis reveals thus :

42 hours

6 days

No. of study hours per day = 42/6 = 7 hours/day (That shud almost cover the time of the day when I'm awake :D)

On the brighter side. the material doesn't look too monotonous. Lots of interesting stuff which (thankfully) doesn't need to be gulped down the throat for examination purposes. Let's see how I fare... will keep you all updated on this !

Till next time.. Cheers !
