An Introduction to the batch of 2019-21

It is not the strongest of the species that survive, nor the most intelligent, but the one most responsive to change." A new zeal, vigour, and an unquenchable thirst for proving oneself is what describes MBA batch of 2019-21. 52 of us set foot on the pavement of a new journey and needless to say it has been unprecedented. Be it the early morning presentations, the stark midnight deadlines, or the never-ending case studies covering the gamut of concepts and context, each one of these activities can vouch for it.
