A recap on my first semester of International Business Management.
While it was a demanding semester, it was just as exciting throughout. I come from a computer science background and so this was in many was uncharted waters for me. The course by itself has been very well structured. In Fundamentals of Business management where we were introduced to the five main aspects of a business. International trade and environment has educated me to the finer points of running a business in the global scenario. I was able to correlate and better utilize a lot of concepts in each of my subjects. For example, researching for my assignments in Fundamentals of Business Management (there were 5!) helped me while working for my Design thinking and International Project Management projects. As I have mentioned in my previous blogs, both these subjects have given me an opportunity to utilize class concepts in real projects with real life consequences. Importantly I have also learnt to manage time and resources in the real sense.
I have learnt to experiment with the concept of redesigning in the context of marketing and operations. Not only just in class, I was even able to make better sales in my part time job by employing a few techniques about empathy and stastical placement that we learnt in our course work. Also working in diverse teams has improved me as a team player.
Its time now to finish the final assignment for this semester and finalise the layout for the magazine for the website.
