“Should’ve studied engineering,” says BBA student struggling with PowerPoint presentation
In a strange turn of events, Bi-Directional University Marketing student Sakib Zuhair has suddenly expressed his desire to drop out of Business school and pursue Engineering instead. The decision was reportedly made after Sakib grew frustrated with having to prepare 10 to 15 PowerPoint presentations every semester. Sakib expressed his anger through a Facebook status on Sunday.
"Studying Marketing has always been a dream of mine," reads the Facebook status. "I knew I was born to be a business-bro the moment I first laid my eyes on chinos and tight body-hugging shirts. I would always imagine myself standing in front of an audience in that attire as I explained to them the SWOT analysis of a local grocery store and how dynamic their business model is. Turns out, I, like most Business majors, was wrong, not just about business models, but also about my dreams."
"PowerPoint presentations were fun at first," the Facebook post goes on. "I'd always look forward to the days when me and my business-mates would get to wear our fanciest suits or sarees, and take pictures in the most ridiculous poses. The fun, sadly, didn't last long as I soon realised that I had to make at least ten such presentations every semester. This took a toll on my mental health and I was starting to lose whatever few brain cells I had left. Honestly, it seems that studying Engineering would've been a better call back then."
Sakib's bizarre realisation had shocked many of his Facebook friends. One particular individual from his friend list was his teacher at Devdas Engineering Coaching, and Azimpur University of Engineering and Technology (AUET) graduate Kazi Faruk, who apparently fell off his chair laughing while reading Sakib's status.
"LMAO," commented Faruk under Sakib's status. "You have zero skills to be an engineer. That's why you always ended up being dead last in Devdas' Murkho batch. Have some shame and humility for yourself and some respect for the excellence that is an Engineering degree. Keep your Marketing hands off of this subject we all love to hate so dearly."
Sakib wasn't backing out. To Faruk's comment, he replied, "Honestly, I think studying complex variables and Laplace transformations is much easier than making PowerPoint presentations. BBA is a challenging degree and Marketing is a challenging major. While I know I have what it takes to excel in this academic environment and hone my skills to perfectly suit the dynamic corporate world, I am fed up with presentations. They no longer bring me joy and thus, I no longer want to pursue this route. Engineering awaits me, my dear friends and teachers, and I shall soon make the switch."
Sakib's Facebook status went viral in a matter of hours. BBA bros and corporate suit wielders from all across the country praised him for his honesty as they kept sharing his status on whatever social platform they were on. Feeling empowered, Sakib opened up a Facebook page of his own as a digital creator, and added the term 'Influencer' on his Facebook and LinkedIn bio.
