The MBAst batch of 2006 tricked us this Saturday. The director of the MBA program Shannon walked into the class and told us that every year before the academic classes begin, they conduct a diagnostic test to check the business acumen and knowledge of the incoming class. The same test would be conducted for us too. We took the test and as we started the test realized that the questions were tough.There were questions in quants, stats, finance and there was a case study too comparing the US and Canadian exchange rate !. We were tensed. One could notice tensed faces, anxious moments until the batch of 2006 (the last year's batch) walked into the class shouting that this was a joke!! He he !!They pulled a trick on us.!
To be honest, I too was quite tensed about the whole issue.

A lovely set of boyz and gals, the batch of 2006 organized a transition dinner for us. Before that, they gave a wonderful presentation to us where they talked about what we could expect in the next 1 year. They shared their words of wisdom and talked about things we should watch out for." Make the most of your MBA experience. This is going to be one of the best years you will have" was what every one had to say.!

After the dinner, there was a scavenger hunt and that was followed by a set of games. At around 11 PM, there was a beer drinking competition between the batch of 06 and 07.This was followed by dance till the wee hours of the morning. The folks had great fun. Thank you batch of 2006!!
Here are some pics that say it all:
