Greetings!!

It’s time to declare the results of the “MBASkool Business Article Writing Contest” January 2012 edition!! This time around, the stakes and prizes were higher and also, the competition was more intense!

With over 243 articles submitted for the competition from over 35 B-schools, the January 2012 Contest on MBASkool was an amazing success. Like always, MBASkool took the maximum effort to select only authentic and original entries which offered quality content to be shared to the B-School fraternity. Out of the total received entries, over 150 articles were not accepted as they were highly inspired or copied or lacked quality content, concepts & writing style.

MBASkool promotes students generating their own literary work and respects originality of thoughts.

Each article was evaluated by industry experts on three parameters namely idea/topic, quality of the content of the article and the language & writing style.

MBASkool is happy to announce the “Winners” of the contest, “Special mention” articles and other articles which have been selected for publication on MBASkool.
