John Molson MBA International Case Competition 2010

Gaurav reports on the NUS MBA Team’s insights from participating in the John Molson Business Case Competition 2010 in Canada.

It all started with an email from the MBA Office inviting people to participate in the John Molson Business Case Competition. The students needed to submit an essay, their resumes and also solve a case which was judged by our distinguished professors.

About a month after the whole process started, the team was announced; Jaimin Shah, Hugo Rufino, Suveer Rajpal and of course, me. Then started the rush for flight tickets, visas etc. Hugo was chosen our team leader and he did a good job ensuring everything went well.

CSR-Kaleidoscope: Behind The Scenes

CSR-Kaleidoscope Team 2009

CSR-K Organising Committee

NUS MBA graduate Dr. Vikram Jaisinghani looks back on CSR-Kaleidoscope, a CSR conference targeting MBA students from leading Business Schools in Singapore.

I woke up on Oct. 8th, 2009 with butterflies in my stomach. This was the day for which I had toiled tirelessly for the last 5 months; when ‘CSR Kaleidoscope 2009’ would make its debut.
