SJMSOM thrives on the IIT Bombay environment – which is one of the most sought after colleges in the country. With a campus of over 550 acres it is a hub for extracurricular, co-curricular and student driven activities. Thus, the opportunities for industry exposure are tremendous.

Q.2) Which ABG company would you want to work for and why?

I would wish to work for Idea cellular limited. The primary reason is that I have had an experience in the telecom sector of close to 4 years before joining SJMSOM as I was working with Vodafone. The telecom sector was my home ground and I feel I now know the sector well and will flourish in future roles in any operators or telecoms. With the upcoming merger of Idea cellular with Vodafone India a totally new company will be formed – Vodafone Idea Ltd. This new company will be bigger, better and will have the combined market share, spectrum and expertise of both the individual players.
