The Launch! [Ctrl+Alt+T]

Feels like the old school days; you iron clothes, you polish shoes, get your stuff sorted and run for the bus. #oxfordmba and #itsanoxfordthing are the headlines for the day. We have a ruffian in the fairy tale – rain. But, with the goal of “you can do better” in the backend, the cohort reaches […]

A Peek Inside the warehouses of ‘Earth’s Most Customer-Centric Company’

“Work Hard. Have Fun. Make History:” these words greeted us when we walked into Amazon’s fulfilment centre at Rugeley, UK.

Surviving the Hilary Hell

After taking the Business Finance examination right after the winter break, we all thought, “Well, Hilary is not quite as busy as the Michaelmas term. Then, where does the popular term #Hellary originate from?” Little did we know, that the first few weeks of February are just the calm before the storm. What waits for […]
