My MBA study is over!
This week I went to school to attend my last lecture towards an MBA. I am graduating a couple of months early with feelings of happiness, achievement and a trifle sadness as I will in all probability not be studying full-time again. But overall I am happy over the way things turned out. I am very glad I decided to come to Fuqua for what has been the most educative two years of my life.
Beginning from March, I will be working for a non-profit organization (Udyogini). I am very excited about this opportunity because it will allow me to spend time and experience the non-profit industry in India up-close and personal. This is something that I always wanted to do but was not sure when and how I will make it happen.
Udyogini is supported through a World Bank initiative and works with poor women to improve their skills as producers and their knowledge of the markets they operate in. I will be working for their business development unit which provides services to its field projects as well as external clients.
The fact that I will travel to various villages in India and stay there for 3-4 weeks in order to understand everything only adds to my excitement. I have spent my entire life in urban India and I look forward to experience the rural life that is home to over 70% of our country's population.
