Long time since I had a classroom experience after my academic exposure at IIM Lucknow. So on slightest opportunity I got I enrolled in a project management program at Stanford. Know more.
Only thing different this time is the delivery option I chose for this program- Online. I’m excited and a bit skeptical of this delivery mode. I’ll judge the efficacy as I go along this program.
Also I’ve planned to take notes on my blog. So the next few posts will be the classroom extracts of the attended classes as part of this certificate program. So here I go.
Traveled to Lucknow last week to attend the 26thAnnual Convocation 2012 at IIM Lucknow campus. It was good meeting up with old friends, Profs and other faculty members. The Lucknow campus is in itself is a great experience. The IIM-L Noida campus stills needs to catch up a vibrancy like the parent campus. Hopefully the years and the batches to come will bring in that fresh change.
It was a heartwarming ceremony and I’m proud to be conferred the degree by Dr. C. Rangarajan, Chairman of the Prime Minister’s Economic Advisory Council, former Member of Parliament and Governor of the Reserve Bank of India and Dr. J.J. Irani, Chairman Board of Governors, IIM Lucknow and former Managing Director of Tata Steel .
With this degree I believe to have crossed a significant milestone of my life and look forward for a challenging and learning experience that lies ahead.
