What kind of MBA are you?

What kind of MBA are you? An ST MBA, SC MBA, OBC MBA or just another handicapped MBA?

Rajagiri college in Kochi in their relentless pursuit towards excellence in social sciences has announced the list of MBA admits for 2008-2010. Its said that in HBS, you have to define your place in the first few weeks, there is a lot of introspection. Rajagiri does that for their students even before classes begin. Yes, Johnny Tony in the second bench is an RCSC MBA and you are a Merit MBA.

And in their Relentless pursuit towards excellence they have been accredited with a Five Star Rating by UGC-NAAC and Reaccredited A+

This indeed is A+ category.

Am I dumb, is this how admissions work? Wouldn’t one combined Final list do for the Class of 2010. Can we be a little more sensible? These admits will be spending their next two years together, and the college is not really doing them a favour. My colleague says this is outright discrimination. Don’t know, skipped lunch again, wtf!

Thank God Its Friday!

    Hi
    I have seen many top rung B Schools having their final list as Open,SC,ST and PH.
    Rajagiri jus’ went a step ahead in their pursuit of excellence. Can’t blame them 😉
    As they say, way ahead of others.

    Criminal…that’s what i would call this! that’s what this is. enikkishtapettu…the way you have poked them…somebody should post your article link in the rajagiri orkut community!

    Lemme give you an example of rajagiri ‘s pursuit of excellence…a cousin of mine studied in their school till 10th, his marks in malayalam were low, so they didn’t give him admit to Plus-2. if that’s what they do to school kids, i wouldn’t be surprised at this sort of segregation.

    I am forwarding this to my dad…he knows a top honcho in the cmi congregation which runs rajagiri…atleast next year hopefully, let them stop this new way of grading MBA’s!!!

    If at all they have to do this, why can’t it just be Merit and Others?

    couldnt agree more. It should have been one single consolidated list.

    But then, may be they did it on purpose. You never know. It may have deeper political meanings to it. 😉

    Im dumbstruck..this is the limits of craziness..maybe it wont so much affect the students themselves..but what exactly did the mnagement try to do with that..i have no clue…

    Jiby, oh you are angry 🙂

    if they can’t maintain at least a haywire of sensitivity in their dealings, dont know what will be the results of the learning they impart

    Alakananda, claustrophobic morons they are *whatever that means, some big word*

    Payyan, I saw exactly what you saw, but i gave in to the other choice that they are morons. if they are not, I see what you see 🙂

    Jina, welcome 🙂
    and i was wondering who would benefit from inducing some decadence into the reservation arrangement, just a random thought. you wrote on this – the impact on students.

    On the first look, it does irritate me. (the background music of Rajagiri)

    But, such issues (i hope) dont really affect relationships/acquaintances once college/class starts.
