With graduation in Biomedical Engineering and seven years of work experience in the Medical Devices Industry, I had planned to do my MBA. After a lot of research and consultation, I zeroed down on doing my MBA at the esteemed University of Otago, which holds the reputation of the best full-time MBA program in New Zealand. 

The University is located in the scenic city of Dunedin. Before travelling to any other city in New Zealand, I wanted to explore all the beauty this wonderful city had to offer. Hence, my bucket list was ready.

My very first exploration was the ‘Cycle Tour of Dunedin’ social event organised by the OtagoMBA staff. The chief highlights of the tour were visiting Baldwin Street, which is the steepest street of the world, and Botanical Gardens, which is a treat to a visitor who loves flora. The tour was not only an enjoyable excursion for the MBA cohort but also a platform where some remarkable friendships kicked off. 



My next trip was to the Tunnel Beach, the most scenic place I have ever been to in my life. It has sea-carved sandstone cliffs, rock arches and caves. The access to the beach is through a tunnel. This was followed by Brighton beach, which is a quick drive from Green Island. Watching the sunset amidst the sea waves was very relaxing to the eyes.
