NUS & KPMG – Battle on Cricket Grounds

Surya reports on a cricket friendly between the NUS MBA team and KPMG at the Ceylon Sports Club.

Golfing the ‘N’ factor – No Way!!

Sushant Sharma blogs about a day at Queenstown Golf Driving Range with the NUS MBA Golf Club.

“You should play it to be in the right circle!!”

I was sick and tired of listening to these phrases, so I decided to break this ice between me and golf. On a lazy Saturday afternoon when all the assignments, project and cases were due, I decided to join our Golf Club Team initiated by Anurodh, to try my hands with the Clubs.
