Here’s what past student team members have to say about the program –
- Being a part of the student team at InsideIIM was the biggest B-School metamorphosis that happened to me. Not only did it teach me the nuances of content creation and digital analytics but also helped me establish a social standing in the aspirant community, the B-School fraternity and among the top recruiters. Most of all, it helped me fuel my passion to write and to self sponsor my Grad-Trip to Italy. - Pratik Ranjan Verma, IIM Lucknow (Class of 2017-2019). HUL PPO Holder, Joining BCG in 2019.
- The student program made me a better writer and increased my knowledge about the MBA scenario in India. I realized what the budding aspirants wished to know and got the opportunity to give back to the CAT community. Strongly recommended :) - Akshaykumar Sirsalewala, IIM Kozhikode (Class of 2018-2020).
- I learned Google analytics which helped me with my final placement. Since there was no micromanagement, I had the freedom to write whatever I wanted. – Karan Kakkar, IIM Kozhikode (Class of 2016-2018). Currently working at Sapient Consulting.
- One of the best things I’ve done in B-school; it expanded my network far beyond IMT-G. – Sachin Mandot, IMT Ghaziabad (Class of 2016-2018). Currently working at HCL.
- I would like to thank the InsideIIM administration for this wonderful opportunity. It was an amazing learning experience for me and it was really nice to put in so much energy and effort that you know is going to help not only the MBA candidates at the top B-Schools across the country, the aspirants but also me to sharpen my acumen and skills. I went in as a novice, came out not as an essayist or a marketing wizard, but definitely with a new set of tools, the right approach, and strategic mindset to achieve that dream. I would highly recommend this Student Team Programme to the juniors! - Apurva Sharma, IIM Trichy, (Class of 2018-2020)
Editor’s Note – One thing that InsideIIM truly stands for is Storytelling. There are a lot of websites that give out a lot of information-based and news-y articles. InsideIIM is that and more. We are all about stories and personal journeys. We try to marry data and content and weave those into stories that our audience can not only relate to but it also adds value to their life. If making a difference, even to one user, is what you are looking for, I would urge you to apply to this program.
