IIM Shillong – A Dream Came True

IIM Shillong, an emerging name in the world of management institutes, has made its distinct image in India in a decade. Also known as Campus in Clouds, situated in Scotland of north east, its scenic beauty and climatic condition is at par. Along with this distinct geographical advantage IIM Shillong also have a totally different vision, mission and aim. It is the only management college in the country which has sustainability in its vision and also in its curriculum. This is one of the reasons why I chose IIM Shillong. I have done social and rural internships during my under graduation during which I visited many villages. The condition of those villages made me realize the importance of sustainability. IIM Shillong provides the platform to give back to society.

IIM Shillong is different from other renowned management institutes in many ways. Apart from sustainability, it also offers the most variety of elective courses in the second year. Also, it has the most diverse batch in terms of gender, academic background, extracurricular activities etc which helps to enhance the concept of peer learning. IIM Shillong, like many other colleges, is also a student-driven institute. This gives students the actual exposure to management studies.

IIM Shillong is an ocean of opportunities, inside IIM and also outside it. Many areas are still untouched and yet to be explored. Students can learn management along with practising sustainability and also developing the society.  So everything goes hand in hand. All these are the reasons why joining IIM Shillong was my dream and I am grateful that I joined it.

I am aspiring to join Aditya Birla Capital Limited. It’s the mother company of all the financial services businesses of ABG. It’s one of the biggest companies in this domain and a dream for many candidates. It delivers a wide range to a solution regarding money for investing and financing its customers. It manages, on an average, assets worth Rs 2813 billion through its subsidies and joint ventures. This itself shows the value of stake of the company in this domain. Aditya Birla Capital Limited can be considered as the backbone of ABG and to be a part of this company will be of great pleasure. Although it also comprises of responsibilities which every employee associated with it will feel on their shoulder but I am ready to take this as a challenge and will fulfil all my duties if got a chance to become its part.
