Consulting Workshop Report – Guesstimates, Case Interviews And Konversations On Journeys

Workshops to Crack the CAT or other Entrance Exams and selecting a b-school are too myopic. Career decisions go beyond how much you score in your CAT or which b-school you select! It ends with selecting the right Career Path and Goal for yourself. And what’s the point of cracking the CAT or getting into a b-school if you don’t know which career is the best for you. In this series of Offline events, InsideIIM – Konversations aims to help you with making an informed career choice and to move past the RAT race!
