The pursuit of an international MBA program could change the course of your life – Period! The metamorphosis from the narrow lens of your comfort zone to the big, broad global world stage is a phenomenal experience to go through.

This very personal and unique experience will bring about lasting changes in you – be it intellectual, social or emotional – and you would have reshaped yourself into a new, better you.

If you wish to harness your curiosity, if you want to understand how international college life and experiences during an MBA that transcend beyond just academics could bring lifelong learning for you – then this is the book for you.

This is a “why to…” and a “what to…” book. This is not a “how to…” book, because no book can teach you execution. You are your own strategist and your “how to…” will be unique to you too.

Regardless of the motivation, many people consider pursuing an international MBA; very few convert that into action; hardly any end up sharing their experiences to help another generation make considered choices.

The author invites you to read his memoir from the MBA year that was his journey and explore if you can take away any learnings from the choices he made as well as those that he missed. Either way, you would be the beneficiary. Not only could you consider making the ‘good’ choices that he made, you would also have the advantage of avoiding any ‘not so good’ choices. In the process, you would be in a better position after reading the book, than you were before you picked it up. Who knows, you may even end up pursuing the MBA program at Cranfield School of Management in the UK.

As they say, this comes directly from the horses’ mouth. The author has lived through each and every experience shared herein. And this alone would help you figure out ‘the what’ and ‘the why’ of the choices you could make.

The Year That Was is an authentic memoir of the author’s adventures, survival, and learnings from the pursuit of international education (MBA). It is a funny, engaging and a seamless narrative of first hand experiences through conversations between a doting dad and his mischievous and curious young daughter.

Many books are out there, positioning themselves as a proxy to an MBA education. Nothing could be far from the truth. If one could really acquire the MBA-wisdom in 10-days just by reading a book, then the world would have been a different place.

This book does not intend to offer any MBA models, jargon, etc. On offer here is not personal catharsis, but perspectives. The book is a vehicle for something more significant than the history of the people and events it describes. Its self-deprecating narrative style breaks up seemingly-complicated learning areas into very simple life lessons.

About the Author

Sandeep Gupta is a global citizen in the making - a Brit national, originally from New Delhi, India and now living in the sunny Middle East region and having worked across EMEA and India in his corporate career that is coming close to completing three decades.

Sandeep grew up in a small nuclear family where a few things just could never be compromised - education being in the forefront of that list and the need to develop perseverance was just a given. From running after local buses to reach school to studying on borrowed monies and books, the experiences have kept him grounded.

It was the pursuit of education again that took Sandeep to Cranfield School of Management in the UK and what an year it was...something he would be glad to do again (without the fees, this time of course).

With so much of unlearning and relearning that has been happening for Sandeep, at a point in time, he realized the importance of sharing some snippets of his journey with others who could benefit therefrom.

Sandeep is an accidental author, having published multiple articles in a few management journals. The book "The Year That Was - Metamorphosis by an MBA" is a departure from the topics he writes on, but probably is closer to his heart than anything else.
