IIM Shillong – Experiencing Nature
Indian Institute of Management Shillong, a very prestigious institute which enjoys the charms of the city Shillong, the Scotland of the East, is a perfect place for students aspiring to become the future managers and better individuals in all aspects of life. IIM Shillong is unique as it is situated in the north eastern part of the country which gives the opportunity to experience a totally different environment to be in. One most differentiating thing about IIM Shillong is that it has a very huge focus on sustainability, one of the most important thing to do which people knowingly ignore. The institute also hosts international conferences on sustainability, annually. It is an institute which has sustainability at its core, everything that happens in IIMS has a sustainability aspect to it. To grow awareness about sustainability, we conduct a complete one week course on sustainability where both theory and practical aspects are covered. The one day trek onto the hills of Meghalaya is a great chance for everyone to experience the beauty of nature and a realization about how important the nature is.
The environment at IIMS is one thing which many students would want to be in, given the cool weather, very cooperative seniors, and several other things. The diversity of any batch determines the opportunities which an individual can make use of. IIMS has a much diversified batch with students coming from various academic backgrounds, different states, lifestyles, etc. This helps to gain knowledge of various other things in life, improve and learn new skills and apply them in our work or day to day life.
The student abroad program is also a differentiating factor as students are able to go abroad for the purpose of gaining knowledge about the systems in the foreign country. The institute also has a collaboration with the government of Meghalaya, which works for the development of the state. The institute started Nurturing Minds, a teaching initiative undertaken by students to spread the light of education in the memory of Dr. A.P. J. Abdul Kalam. Apart from this, the golf club of IIMS is one which you cannot find in any other institute in India. In my opinion IIM Shillong facilitates overall growth of the students in both the academic and personal facets which helps them to have a well-rounded personality which gives them the edge in the corporate world.
Which ABG company I would want to work for and why?
If I get an opportunity, I would like to work for Aditya Birla Finance Limited of the Aditya Birla Group. The reason I want to work for this company is that my interests are inclined towards the world of finance. I have done my graduation in management studies with specialization in finance, which has helped me to gain insights and knowledge about finance. I further want to increase my knowledge base and apply that in real world. Aditya Birla Finance Limited would be a great place to work given that it is a part of one of the largest conglomerate in India and is amongst the top five largest private diversified NBFC’s in India.
