Life at DMS, IIT Delhi
After having worked for almost 4 years in the area of Behavioral training and Professional skills development, I walked into the campus of DMS IIT Delhi as an extremely competitive and confident individual. I used to wonder what else can a MBA at DMS IITD teach me about management but soon, I was humbled.
“There is nothing noble in being superior to your fellow man; true nobility is being superior to your former self” Ernest Hemingway’s quote has been the driving force of my life ever since. DMS IIT Delhi has been the best thing that has happened to me. At DMS IIT Delhi, I have an opportunity to study and learn with people of varied backgrounds. The exposure that DMS IIT Delhi provides in terms of its rigorous pedagogy, illustrious faculty members, visiting stalwarts from the industry, internships and live projects, and the sheer location advantage of being in the capital of the country is stupendous.
As a community the students are well represented through various committees like Industry Interaction committee, Cultural committee, Placements committee, Alumni committee, Media Committee and Sports committee.
Life at DMS IITD isn’t a walk in the park. A day at DMS is something like this: Get up early, finish the assignments, presentations/reports, take a bath (miss it on most days: P) get to the class by 8, return only by 7 in the evening to again start working on the assignments. Submissions and crazy deadlines ensure that you’re always on your toes; a day is never dull here.
DMS students do find time to pursue non academic interests as well. IITD campus is equipped with the best infrastructure from cricket/football/hockey grounds to swimming pool, amphitheatre and gymnasium. Every hostel has its own gym and an indoor sports space with a couple of TT tables.
Various clubs like Marketing club, Consulting club, Quiz club, Egg’s act (Drama and Music club) keep the student community engaged by conducting competitions, events, quizzes, guest lectures and conclaves.
Apart from all these the cultural fest, placement related events and industry interactions keep the students completely engaged throughout the academic year.
Every day at DMS IIT Delhi is a great learning experience and with never a dull moment. I hope to take away skills and memories of a lifetime and be superior to my former self.
