Imagine if you crack the CAT exam after slogging for months, get shortlisted for interviews and finally get your admission offer, only to be told that your b-school experience would be from the confines of your bedroom for an indefinite period of time. This is the fate that awaited the current batch of 2022, where students were unable to go to campus, thwarted from experiencing campus life by the first and second waves of the pandemic.
Even now at many business schools, the outgoing batch is unable to travel to campus, having spent the better part of their final semesters in the confines of their home, studying via online classes. With the second wave hitting harder than the first and many b-schools reporting active cases on campus, the one question that arises in the minds of anyone planning to pursue an MBA this year is: Is it even worth it?
To discuss and find out an answer to this crucial question, we bring to you a live discussion with the Aditya Birla Group (ABG)'s B-School Campus Recruiter, the Associate Dean at SPJIMR, and a current student at IIM Calcutta.
