Which ABG company would you want to work for and why?
Given a choice to work for the prestigious Aditya Birla Group, I would like to work for Aditya Birla Retail Limited. My prior branding internship experience helped me gain interest in marketing and pursue my MBA to enhance my knowledge in this field. Working for the FMCG products would definitely help me know the end-to-end processes involved and the branding strategies used in the market. My prior internship experience along with the above FMCG experience would definitely widen my knowledge in this particular domain, which would, in turn, help me achieve my long-term goal of making an impact in the economic and social development of the nation.
