ELP & PAEV

ISB's Experiental Learning Program is sort of like an internship. Companies hire MBA students from ISB for projects that have scope in the real world. This allows the company to get things done for much cheaper, and also scope out the students. This program is highly in demand among the students here at ISB. More so for the people who're looking for a shift in careers.
Planning an Entrepreneurial Venture (PAEV) is a course offered here at ISB which is also highly in demand. The course involves learning how to formulate a business plan, solidify it, make pitches to venture capitalists, etc. This is one of the more popular electives on campus.

Both courses have 1 credit and are graded and count for graduation. Both are supposed to be heavy load courses. Somehow, on some gut instinct I've ended up registering for both. Hopefully I won't get too screwed!!

I went through a course similar to PAEV at the Univ. of Chicago. It was an amazing experience with many a chance to actually pull together a lot of stuff you had learnt in other courses while at the same time introducing an element of practicality & decision-making to the whole exercise.

It will be tough but nothing that cannot be handled. I knew couple of people who took both the courses last year.

Important - Choose good teams for both of the courses. You will need their support when deadline clashes occur.
