Interview with an Entrepreneur: Rachael Lynsey Rubin


As an assignment for ES 600: Entrepreneurial Thinking with Professor Jeff Shuman, each student was asked to find a successful entrepreneur and interview him or her about several topics including the inspiration behind the business, the challenges and limitations each has overcome, and the creative process involved in developing a business strategy. I was fortunate enough to have the opportunity to interview Rachael Lynsey Rubin, a visionary entrepreneur and founder […]

Santa is already in town.. But Christmas is yet to arrive!!!

iPhone imports 1532

  The Library Bell ringing louder with each passing day, wreaths lined up on every street corner, gifts flowing in from everywhere and the place is gleaming with festivities… This is my first Christmas away from home, and my first white Christmas ever. I thought I would be missing home and throwing tantrums over not being able to fly to India for vacation, but the story here is quite the […]

Wearing the ‘Christopher Columbus’ hat


Hi guys, Time to EXPLORE FAITHFUL READERS!!! I’ve been talking to you about the course and the school beyond my vocabulary until now. This is the time to strap my seat belt and explore Boston and areas around. With hundreds of icy snowy skating rinks/ skiing areas in the city at your disposal, it was never easier to enjoy the snow and socialize with the city bugs. Boston Common and […]

I’m eager to know what is waiting for us in our second trip to Atlanta, Georgia which we’ll have during the first week of January. Studying in the Bentley MBA program has kept me […]

New class, new excitement!

We started a new class in the Value module – Strategic Marketing. Thanksgiving break just got over and it’s not that easy to come back to the arduous assignments and 8 hours studying per day. But, the beginning of the course was very exciting. We have two interesting assignments to be done: individual and group. The group assignment sounds terrific! We need to create an ironic advertisement for any existent […]

Real World Corporate Experience…Disguised As A Class

Part of the ELMBA curriculum is a required Corporate Immersion course. In my experience it was more like an internship than a class. The course focuses on solving current business problems with company management, and they mean it. Each week we had EXECUTIVES from our partner company come to class. EACH WEEK. They were committing to us, just as much as we were committing to them. I wasn’t just in […]
