Aditya Birla Group: The rising sun of India – IMT Ghaziabad
Challenges have away been part of life for everyone, for me, the biggest challenge was to move out of my family business to study for management entrance exams. After my graduation, I’d decided to join my family business before going for an MBA. After two years I realize that it was time to move back to my dream of pursuing a career in management, I had to convince my parents that I wanted to move on to the corporate world and step out of the family business but they wanted me to pursue the family business. After convincing them I had to get myself back into the study mode. It had been a huge challenge as I had been away from academics for 2 years and getting back into the competitive exam environment took me a while, but I was determined to secure my future in a reputed B-school. Hence, I applied full concentration in order to succeed, despite having to attend family business every once in a while, to solve issues of production.
I had to manage my time between preparation and the work, learning from my mistakes I made in mocks during my preparing and work towards the goal along with making sure learning is not compromised by getting too focused on the end result. As my reading speed had been slower as compared to the standards of the CAT aspirants, I had to read a lot and fitting all that in the hectic schedule was quite a difficult task for me. I started reading during my commute time and tried to read a variety of content, which was challenging at first but after a while, I got used to it. In the end, I was able to crack the entrance exam for MBA and secured admission in one of the reputed B-schools of this country.
