Namaste, Dudes

Map of IndiaHey readaz.

Trying to find a job for summer = time-consuming and thus bad for blogging, but I got some mad cool news recently when I found out that I’m going to Bangalore, India, for five weeks as part of the Multidisciplinary Action Program (or MAP, for the acronymically challenged) at Ross. Sweet!

So, some background on this: all MBA1s do a MAP as the last quarter of the first year. At the end of December, the list of available projects comes out; about half of these are international, and this year there were projects in India, Ireland, Peru, Brazil, France and several others, as well as a bunch of domestic projects all over the U.S. Our top ten list of preferences was due in early January, and the school formed teams of 4-6 people based on preferences. I was lucky enough to get my number one pick: helping out these guys as they launch their mobile device in India, getting market feedback and other stuff useful to the company.

I’ll be gone from mid-March to mid-April, so I promise as much India blogging as I can find time to do. I gotta keep yinz updated on what it’s like to eat curries for breakfast, yo. Good times and ghee for all.
