It’s overwhelming to announce the results of the MBASkool Business Article Writing Contest” July 2012.

Over 403 articles were submitted with participants from over 60 B-Schools, making it the biggest contest organized by MBASkool till date. Our team has taken maximum efforts to ensure that the original and best articles are selected for publication. Nearly 190 articles were not accepted due to issues of being highly inspired or lacking quality content.

MBASkool aims to give students a platform for developing their own literary work and respects originality of thought.

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