Cracking the Code to MBA: Interactive guidance and mentorship sessions with IIM Calcutta students on navigating your MBA preparation journey

The MBA Project is an initiative by a few students of IIM Calcutta and aims to guide MBA aspirants. It also plans to raise funds for the families living on the streets of Kolkata through its partnership with an International NGO Future Hope for its COVID relief efforts.

Starting this Sunday, 19th of July, there will be 4 curated sessions with a diverse set of speakers. These speakers will shed light on their decisions to do an MBA and why it was the right choice for them. They will also highlight their preparation and mock strategies for competitive entrance exams and the plethora of opportunities that an MBA opened for them in and after their B-school.

The team at The MBA Project strongly feels that everyone should receive the much-needed MBA guidance from seniors while preparing for admission exams. In these unprecedented times of the pandemic, we wish to fulfil this need while giving back to the society and contributing in COVID relief efforts. You can be a part of this initiative and contribute as well.

The COVID Relief Fundraising – Where would the contribution go?

The MBA Project has partnered with Future Hope to contribute to its COVID relief efforts for the families living on the streets of Kolkata. All contribution from the sessions would be to accommodate the dire needs and solve the problems that they face in these adverse circumstances of a pandemic.

About Future Hope:

Future Hope is a 30-year old charity organization dedicated to creating a brighter future for some of the most vulnerable children from the streets and slums of Kolkata by providing opportunity through its homes, school, sports and medical programme and family life homes where the children feel cared for and happy.
