We starting the Third Stage!

The international stay in Asia and the last courses in the Second Stage marked the end of the first half of the fortnightly format of the EMBA programme. We had enjoyed the intense, varied classes, which were emotion-packed and full of valuable lessons.

We leave behind the well-deserved (and now almost forgotten) holidays that have left us raring to go for the programme’s Third Stage.

The new stage we are now embarking covers subjects that are both thrilling and complementary. They range from the development of new businesses, self-knowledge, an international stay at HEC Paris and a whole lot more.

On this leg of the journey, we will press ahead with our quest for personal and professional development and will also have the chance to share thoughts with our own personal coach as we grapple with anything that might hinder us from achieving our goals. In addition, there is professional guidance to show us how best to attain our aims.

Satisfaction lies in the effort, not in the attainment, full effort is full victory” (Mahatma Gandhi)

Now for the second stage!

The sheer intensity of the programme might lead one to think that only a few weeks have elapsed since it began but in fact it has been under way for four months. It has been packed with unlearning and Eureka moments and has brimmed with adventures in learning and strong emotions. Yet its most motivating aspect is that there is an even greater wealth of knowledge and wisdom still in store.

In addition to the lectures (which are as testing as ever), we are preparing for the first intensive international week, which will be held in June.

The first international stay will be in Asia, with some groups going to China (Beijing – Guanghua School of Management) and others to India (Hyderabad – Indian School of Business, and Bombay). The flights have already been booked and the visas arranged.

We have now reached the second stage of the programme, with new courses, teachers, groups, activities and case studies. We seem to be in perpetual motion, enriching our knowledge by leaps and bounds as the programme continues to gather pace.

Progress is not possible without change, and those who cannot change their minds, cannot change anything” (George Bernard Shaw)
