IIM Shillong – A Memorable Classroom Experience

Every day of the class is a memorable one when you are part of B School like IIM Shillong. Soothing background music of rain and mesmerizing view of nature keeps us lively all the time. Here the weather changes at the same pace as the curriculum. Out of all the best memories of classroom, If I were to point out one, it would be my first day in the class. It was the day, I realized that nothing is right or wrong, everyone has their own set of opinions and perspective, everyone is unique in some way or the other and at the end of the day we end up learning something or other from each of them. It’s the place that teach us peer learning. Discussion overflows with knowledge, experiences, learning shared by peers and professors. Case studies come with practical aspect of the theories that we have studied. Here, relationship between teacher and student is that of the facilitator and participant, who gives us direction and then we work on it. Also, we are made to work in the groups, where we learn together, celebrate success and sometimes failures too, explore diversities, fight for competitions and much more. But many a times we might find ourselves in a race and that would be the time self-management would play a significant role. And best part is our day just not end there, even at the end of the day when we are about to sleep, thoughts and curiosities on discussions went throughout the day keep floating in our mind just like clouds all around in the sky and even after being tired, some or the other interesting point will pop up in our head which we can add next day. Life at IIM demands for an open-minded person who is willing to learn. Inspire and keep inspiring, let innovation flow around and keep yourself engaged, your learning will be at the core and your memories unforgettable; with a pinch of salt and smile your life will take you beyond sky.

Keep dreams and aspirations high,

You will surely cross the sky;

Do what gives you a kick,

It’s only you who has to pick;

Sometimes it’s not only about success,

Efforts should never be less;

Keep on doing the best,

One day you will surely pass the life’s test.

Looking forward for many more colorful experiences and memories @ IIM SHILLONG


Which ABG company would you want to work for and why?

Working with ABG would be my dream come true. It would open for me a world of opportunities to discover. Opportunity to enhance career aspirations and fulfil them, opportunity to learn develop and grow as professional, opportunity to be rewarded and recognized and opportunity to lead an enriched life. Being a finance enthusiast, I look for a career in finance domain and would want to work for Aditya Birla Capital Limited (ABCL). ABCL ranks among top 5 fund managers in India and is the holding company for all the financial service businesses of the Aditya Birla Group. With a strong presence across various financial services, ABCL is committed to serve the end-to-end financial services needs of its retail and corporate customers. I am certain that, if given a chance, I would be at core of an effective learning network and would contribute to growth of the company.
