The Joy Of Being Together – IIFT

My life in IIFT Kolkata has been a tremendous experience thus far. The institute has been a treasure trove of life lessons and values. The cultural dynamism among the students on campus helped me appreciate the greatness of our country’s unique diversity. Kolkata, the city of joy, provides a vivid backdrop to the institute.

The students comprise the backbone of any institute. I love meeting people with interesting personalities and varied interests in music, sports, arts and other hobbies. I have been listening to pop songs all my life. After interacting with a few of our budding musicians on campus, I have become open to listening to a whole range of music, from the Rock and Roll of Elvis Presley to the heavy metal of Avenged Sevenfold. Being a sports enthusiast, I love playing football and basketball. I’ve always wanted to try out other sports and games but couldn’t due to a lack of company from friends. But at IIFT, I’ve started trying out new sports in the campus with the other students. We often play volleyball during our free time in the central court located within the hostel premise. Indoor games like Table Tennis and Carroms are also major pastimes. The daily Yoga sessions conducted by the institute helps me become focused and energetic for the rest of the day. At IIFT, we celebrate every festival together with joy and vigour despite our cultural differences and varied upbringings.

The campus is situated in a lush and calm area of Kolkata. The scenic beauty of the campus, highlighted by the pond situated in its midst, fills the heart with joyousness and serenity. The staff and faculty are friendly and eager to help us during our times of need. The campus, although not huge, has every facility that one would require for meeting his academic and personal needs. IIFT Kolkata is the place to be!


Which ABG Company I want to work for and why? 

Being a student of IIFT – the Mecca of trade and pursuing a degree in International Business, I would love to be a part of Swiss Singapore Overseas Enterprises Private Limited. As a trailblazer in the petrochemical trade prominently, the company would be an ideal fit for me as I would get to utilize my knowledge in trade and finance effectively to help me and the company scale new heights. Having lived in Saudi Arabia during my childhood, I would also be able to effectively utilize my knowledge of the petrochemical sector and various players involved in the sector. Aditya Birla Group is a global industry leader in a variety of fields and I would be extremely joyous working for the prestigious ABG Family.
