The Eccentric Life At Planet-I – Kriti Jain, IIM Indore
What makes Planet-I unique in its own way is its remarkable location & structure. Built on top of a hill, IIM Indore brings the promise of a fit life to all its students. Rushing to class, it takes around 15 minutes of climbing over a hundred & fifty stairs to reach the academic block, travelling through an area rich with hundreds of different species of flora and fauna. Laid out on the Rau-Pithampur road, over 20 km away from the city of Indore, the campus brings respite from city life in the form of clean, clear, pollution-free air & a night sky full of stars! The rooftop views from few of the highest located structures of the college give an amazing skyline view of the complete city, & a great opportunity for one to spend time with their own selves, contemplating life. Being located so far away from the main city, the campus is self-sufficient in everything right from the daily necessities which can be found at the student-run pi shop or food ventures which have been started by the student crowd of IIM-I as an entrepreneurial venture & a means to earn certain extra pocket money!! Like any other B-school, planet-I gives amazing friends and peers to all those who ever walked its roads. Right from working late nights in groups, to sharing all ups & downs of life with each other while at campus, student life at IIM Indore is designed to bond its students together in such a way that it gives you, not only amazing friends who’re always there to help you, but also a set of colleagues with a diverse background, who are there for you in different walks of life. Another very important aspect of life at IIM-I is its professors. A little eccentric, they are at the core of our lives here at planet-I and are always the ones behind making students’ lives at campus more exciting, in the midst of all the quizzes, assignments, presentations & placements.
As for the Aditya Birla group, I would like to work for Aditya Birla Capital as it has a strong presence across the life insurance, asset management, lending (excluding Housing), housing finance, equity & commodity broking, wealth management and distribution, online money management, general insurance advisory and private equity and health insurance businesses, which would be an excellent opportunity to learn about these segments & grow my knowledge of the business
