A 20 Lakh Job After B-School With 3 Months Of Effort – Do B-School Grades Matter?
There are many smart B-Schoolers who finish their MBA with minimal effort. They are extremely ROI focussed and know when to push the boundaries and rest of the time they conserve their energy and wait for the right times to fight. Let us give you an example,
Nayan enters B-School on 20th June.
Classes start on 1st July.
Nayan ensures he has enough positions of responsibility and extra-curricular to talk about during the next month or so. He also prepares religiously to ensure he is ready for anything that could be asked during the interviews. In short, he focuses in a concentrated manner to be ready for summer placements. He probably does it at the cost of acads in the first semester. After all, results of the first semester won’t be available during the summer internship interviews and hence won’t be mentioned in the resume sent out to recruiters.
He sits for Summer Internship Placement interviews in the last week of September. Gets an offer in a dream FMCG company.
Fast Forward to April – May. Nayan works again with all his might to do as well as he can during these 2 months. In June, he hears from the company – he has bagged a Pre-placement offer to join the company full-time once his MBA is over.
Wow. From June to June his MBA is done. As long as he does enough to get average grades before he joins the company, he need not struggle again. A focused 3 month effort (1 month of prep during the summer placement season and 2 months of rigorous work during the internship) has ensured that Nayan’s career graph is set. It also begs the question – How important are grades at Business school?
