Why I Joined SDA Bocconi Asia Center
“Bocconi”- the brand itself speaks why a management candidate would like to be associated with it. Yes, Bocconi University (Università di Bocconi) is an internationally oriented institution in business, economic & law in Milan, Italy. The SDA Bocconi was the first school in Italy to be accredited by EQUIS and one of the B schools in the world to hold the “triple crown” accreditations. It is also the first Italian business school to have the only offshore campus at Mumbai, India as SDA Bocconi Asia Center (formerly known as MISB Bocconi). And this has successfully made possible for the Indian management aspirants to have an internationally acclaimed masters being at the Indian soil which is unique of its kind.
It all started when I decided to quit my job and made a decision to have a post-graduation in management for a career progression and like every management candidate, I too had a lot of speculations in choosing a perfect B school for myself. I always wanted to have an internationally acclaimed course with a global exposure as that would provide the right platform to experience the right course, deal with the right problem-solving approach and of course, network with the right people. When I was carrying out my exploration & research, I came to know about Bocconi’spresence in India as SDA Bocconi Asia Center (formerly known as MISB Bocconi) which made me more inquisitive to learn about the programme, faculties, global exposure and past alumni. The curriculum followed in the Asia Center is the result of the extensive industry research by its experienced faculties. So, the International Masters in Business (IMB) programme which is a full- time course offered here, also has a specialization semester in Milan campus which provides a significant international exposure giving the candidates a chance to specialize in a number of available subjects. This exchange semester also provides the right platform to network with the candidates from diversified and varied cross-cultural backgrounds which of course is the major reason of pursuing a management degree.
Knowing the pedagogy of IMB (International Masters in Business), the international exposure through Milan semester & the perks of being a part of Bocconi family fulfilled my criteria of what was I looking for in my management education and this inspired me to join this course. This was my reason for joining the brand Bocconi which would help me to become a manager at present and entrepreneur eventually.
Which Aditya Birla Company would you want to work for, and why?
Aditya Birla group values represent “The Power of 5”- Integrity, Commitment, Passion, Seamlessness, and speed. Aditya Birla Retail Limited is the place where I would like to work because of my inclination to its ethics & values and its customer-friendly approach would help me in reaching the underserved communities which is a part of their DNA. ABRL, keeping its motto “Quality 1st”, was the first ever Indian company to receive FSMS (Food Safety Management System) certification maintaining high-quality standards. The company’s focus on Education, health care, sustainable livelihood, infrastructure development and espousing social causes is also a reason I see in being close to people and society.
