Why IIM U And What Makes IIM Unique! – Nandhakumar, IIM Udaipur
I was initially in a turmoil before joining IIM Udaipur. I wanted to give CAT again next year and I was pretty sure that I can score more with even a very little preparation. I converted IIM U on May 25th but till June 5th I was pretty much sure that I would give CAT again even though I understood that IIM Udaipur is a great institute as can be seen from the growth of the institute, campus and various posts on PagalGuy, Quora, and other forums/Pages. Three things convinced me that it would be stupid on my part to ignore this opportunity (There were a lot more things that convinced me but I’m mentioning just the top 3 here). First was Prof. Janat Shah. His note to the people joining and his interactive session with the new joiners on Facebook convinced me that I’m about to join a college, which in a few years down the lane would be second to none and that I’m in safe hands. Second, the review for the college on various forums wherein it was very difficult to find negative reviews even though I tried hard. Third, the transparent approach that was followed by the college be it the joining process or the placement reports(IPRS audited). With various things in mind, I joined the college on 24th June and all I could see was a beautiful campus amongst a top notch landscape. From day 1, we were emphasised on core values and that may not be something that is unique, most colleges may emphasize on their core values. But the core values by themselves are unique. I’m not sure if there is an institute which has transparency and integrity as a core value and even if it does I’m not sure if the institute follows the values. But IIM U is unique that way. In the past few weeks, I’ve realised that I’m indeed in an institute which stands by its core values. Secondly, the emphasis on academic excellence, research, and entrepreneurship. Ultimately one joins a B-school to learn and when there is a b-school that wants to provide you the best platform to learn academics, implement it in the form of start-ups by setting up e-cell, incubation centre etc., and also provides you with a platform to take your learning one step more by providing you facilities for research. What more could you ask for!
Which ABG company I would like to work for?
With integrity, commitment, passion, seamlessness and speed as the foundational values, it would be a pleasure to be a part of any ABG company. As I was and am always interested in working with a manufacturing company, Birla Carbon is one ABG company that I would love to work with. With an estimated CAGR of 4%, the global carbon market is sure bound to expand and with Birla Carbon being the leading sustainable manufacturer, it would be a wonderful opportunity to be a part of it.
