IIM Shillong – A Bright Future
IIM Shillong, the 7th IIM to be setup is unique in one of its kind. Shillong is possessed with natural beauty, which soothes our mind and our temporary yet one of the most beautiful campuses in India, provides us the appropriate environment for studying. There is something more than MBA, that we learn here at IIM Shillong. The moment we enter our campus, we are continuously taught by both the seniors and the teachers, and it is never limited to academics only. Sustainability is one of my favourite learnings, that I have grasped ever since I have come here. We, the fortunate and the educated ones, need to take the lead for the betterment of society and how to utilize the resources of nature without harming them. We all are specifically taught to switch off the lights, fans, geysers, etc. whenever we are not using them. Cleanliness is followed throughout the campus, and it has also spread throughout the city, and I feel that somehow this message needs to be delivered to bigger cities of India, which are already listed in top polluted cities of the world. IIM Shillong students are called as a part of the family, and all 360 of us (including both batches) know each other pretty well, and this is something which is hardly found in any other campus. All clubs and committees here work together and coherently for the development of the institute. Over the past 10 years, our seniors have achieved many prizes across the sectors. Sooner, we will be shifting to our permanent campus, and this will remove the current campus constraints, which exist in some cases. I got an opportunity in IIM Shillong to interact with diverse people from diverse background, and I have learnt many things from them, which are not limited to academics only. I can guarantee that our batch of 180 students will soon turn into a batch of 180 leaders, who will showcase their expertise and take the name of IIM Shillong to a greater height. It is the best time to invest in a developing institute with a bright future such as IIM Shillong.
Which ABG Company you want to work for and why?
Out of all the vast number of opportunities that ABG Company provides to an individual in his career pathway, I would like to work and excel in Aditya Birla Retail Limited. I have been very interested in working in such a domain, and with an intense competitive market, I feel that I will learn the maximum from such challenging situations. I have prior work experience in Digital Marketing and Analytics, and I have recently interned in a Marketing firm. This would be the best path for me, if I look from a long-term perspective. Currently, we are being taught Consumer Behaviour and Industrial Marketing, and knowledge of these subjects will help me in building my career in Retail. However, I feel that work on hand experience is something, which you cannot learn in school or college. Hence, I would like to work for ABG Retail Limited, and I will give my best and perform excellent work, provided the opportunity.
