Hi everyone!

I recently got lucky enough to gain an admit to ISB, so will be heading there April 2017.
I was in the merchant navy until now and will be (99.99 percent sure) pursuing Operations.
I wanted to know what all I can do to prepare for B-School, since with my background I have zero experience in Stats , Fin or Accounting.
I have been given a variety of suggestions ranging from CFA level 1 prep, Financial Modelling to Business Analytic courses. I am thoroughly confused. Could you please give me an idea of what I can do. Any certifications that might help?

I think I can tell you what would be least productive. CFA I for Ops. No no. Just because it's a ton of money to learn what's covered there.
I'd pick up an Econ 101 and/or STAT 101 textbook. That should do.

Ya, accounting would be a bad place to start. I'd say start with Book1 - skip ethics of course. And then to econ. You could save accounting for the end. Not that one has to do with another, it's just that accounting could be a little dry.

My class mate actually wrote a book for this, we went to Darden together and he wrote down everything he wished he had known before hand: excel, financing, stats etc. You can find the book on Amazon, its called MBA Prep
