Everyone Is Looking For Some Answers – IIFT
After months of toiling and surviving through the rigorous B-school admission process, you feel a sense of relief, excitement and happiness when you convert one of the premier B-schools of India. But before you could soak in the glory, you realise the time has come to enter the battlefield with another battle to survive.
The moment I entered the gates of the Indian Institute of Foreign Trade, I was filled with a mixed feeling of triumph, anxiety, excitement and fear at the same time. There were many unanswered questions and there were doubts. However, at the same time, I had something which has been my closest ally forever, my self-belief. As I saw new and strange faces and interacted with them, it became apparent to me that I am not alone. Everyone is looking for some answers. They may have different questions but all of them have the same answer.
IIFT, being one of the top B-Schools in the country is blessed with the best in class infrastructure, experienced faculty and vast resources at the disposal of students. But what really stands out for me is the small batch strength of IIFT. With a batch strength of around 170, IIFT is a close-knit family. One of the first thing that we learn on campus is the value of unity and the importance of looking out for each other. The whole IIFT family act as a support system which helps you go through the rigorous and stressful two years. From keeping you awake for late night assignments, waking you up for early classes, sharing food in the mess to save time to help with academics, these are the people on whom you rely on and depend on. These are the same people who you party with and share your apprehensions with. It’s really beautiful how people coming from different walks of life come together and establish a sense of camaraderie in such a short time which will hopefully last for a lifetime.
IIFT will offer a lot to learn and achieve in the coming next two years but the biggest lessons and achievement I will be taking from IIFT are the friendships and memories that I will be making in these two years. The road ahead is rough, the journey ahead is tough but I shall conquer it for I have the comfort of my companion.
I would like to work with Aditya Birla Fashion and Retail Limited.
Fashion Retail Industry in growing sector in India. With the rise in the number of fashion conscious young adult consumer base along with rising disposable income and growth in middle-income segment, this industry offers a lot of opportunity. As I am fashion conscious, I have a great interest in fashion and I strongly believe in enabling everyone to convey their personality through their dressing sense. Working with Aditya Birla Fashion and Retail Limited will be a great experience as it aligns with my interest.
