  • The Place of the Place to B

    It was the early morning of the scheduled quiz. I had woken up around 6am to do some last minute preparation for the subject in an attempt to look knowing on an exam that I knew would anyways be a disaster. As I groggily wandered to the washroom to splash some water on my sleep ridden face, I saw the lights in the room beside mine on.

  • The Gulf Consulting Experience

    We have with us Nipun Jain, PGP 2016-18, talking to us about his international summer internship with BCG Dubai! It was sometime in the middle of my internship, during one of the weekly cab journeys from the airport to my Dubai apartment, I looked out the window at the tall, glitzy skyscrapers when it suddenly hit me. I realized how challenging yet enriching the past four-five weeks had been – it wasn’t just about fancy dinners, five star hotels, numerous flights or long working hours with sacrosanct deadlines, it was majorly about working with one of the smartest people to solve high impact business problems and delivering value for the…
