In 2019, I was seeking an MBA program. I researched numerous Tier-2 executive MBA programs to make sure I could make the most of the money I had spent on the program. However, I was dismayed to find from numerous responders that part-time MBA programs at Tier-2 B-schools are not even close to matching their full-time equivalents.RACE was a really unique experience. The executive MBA ended up educating you far more than a full-time course would have. Top-notch mentors from major multinational corporations were imparting all of their real-world work experiences into their lectures; mind you, they consisted of divisional heads, CTOs, and architects in their respective fields of specialty. What was most extraordinary was the sheer number of modules taught and the variety of perspectives offered through those modules.All of the theories we had learned in class and, most crucially, how to master structured thinking had to be put to the test in our end-to-end, real-time capstone projects, which had to be designed, implemented, deployed, presented, documented, and published. After receiving my degree, I was able to say with a guarantee that it was more than just PAISA WASOOL. Not because I was able to earn a degree which I would have otherwise received from any institution. However, the kind of super churning I went through has given me such a strong sense of fulfilment and confidence.I feel I can challenge anyone to give me any business analytics challenges, and I will not let them down by letting them doubt my abilities and knowledge levels, which I was able to enhance through my degree program at RACE Reva University.
