I bribed a colleague with the promise of a book he’s been asking for and came out of the afternoon invigilation. Didnt get away with it entirely, I’ll go back…eventually.
The worst thing about these MBA students is that they’re too cocky by half. Majority of them have taken educational loans, amounting to above 6 lacs to do this course. And in most of the cases their fathers/parents are the guarantors. So why screw things up for yourself by cheating. I told a student yesterday, ” If you haven’t studied all sem then no amount of time is going to be enough to make up for it. So don’t cheat to compensate. But if you must, do it well and don’t get caught.” I feel sorry for their parents. All their kids are capable of doing is fantasizing about colossal pay packets but ask them a question or two and their entire MBA base is flimsy!
I’ve slacked off plenty myself. My last year of M.A was horrible. I didnt score well because I’d got into a rut I coudn’t get out of and neither did I have anyone who took any effort to kinda get me out of it. Be a mental health professional and people think you’re entirely self-reliant 24/7 :o(
Anyhow, I just wonder how much they’ll be able to translate their training into the actual work requirement when they join a company. Not my problem at the end of the day, but we do take plenty of effort with these guys and this kind of cavalier attitude bites.
