The year 2021, marks 100 years of the Case Method, the use of which started in Harvard Business School, in 1921. That year marked the complete shift of class delivery to cases.

April 29, 2020 - the last day of my first year PGDM at BIMTECH. Also the same day I had my final round of interview for internship at IBM India Pvt Ltd.

The possibilities of living alone and meeting all the new people ran through my mind, much faster than I could keep track.
