Life At IIM Trichy – Boda Ravindernaik

What makes IIM Trichy unique?

“You are Graduating from college. That means that this is the first day of the last day of your life. No, that’s wrong. This is the last day of the first day of school. Nope, that’s worse, this is a Day”

– Andy Samberg

Ask any Engineering background student to say the best period in his life, most of them shall not hesitate to say it as a period of Engineering student life. After an experience of 1 year at IIM Trichy, I can proudly say that this life is nothing less to what I had in my engineering. Be it the campus, be it the Faculty, be it academics, friends or anything else. I cannot compare with the experiences of other IIM’s or for that matter any MBA/PGPM college, because I have not lived their life. I guess IIM Trichy has all the flavours to be called one of the best institutes in this country now.

IIM Trichy’s new campus, the state of art campus, with beautiful infrastructure and the best facilities makes students remember every aspect and cherish. Students are provided with the best possible facilities keeping in view of the interest of all the students. Student body comprises of all kinds of art clubs, also committees for infrastructure, academics, Food. Any decision taken by the administration is after consulting with the Student body. Students can develop their skills in their area of interest. Requests from the students are always considered and try to fulfil their requests. The administration expects Student committees and clubs to conduct competitions and develop the skills of the fellow students in all the areas possible.

While the management respects the priorities of the students, they do not compromise with their academics. They keep reminding the students that academic education alone shall not take them ahead in their careers and they make you realise that this academic education without practical view is of no use. Academics are designed in such a way that students put effort to apply all the relevant academic concepts in a practical scenario. Classes conducted are more like a knowledge
sharing platform rather than the just the concepts delivery. Students are of vast industry experience, they share their knowledge in the class and the Faculty facilitates for such knowledge sharing. Faculty respects the student’s views and corrects them wherever necessary.

IIM Trichy has given me very good friends, who share their knowledge and respect my views. Mentioning few of my crazy friends, Lakshay Mehta, a well-known personality of our college for his mis-speaking in important platforms, Harsha Wurali, a no fear Shakespeare, Kaarthikeyan the Mr. Reckless, Sarath Chandra, the night owl and John D Baashwanth the Brutal Benami.

Which ABG company would you want to work for and why?

Having an experience in Banking for 2 years, also having an interest in Banking and Financial Services, I would like to work for Aditya Birla Finance Ltd. Since I am aware of the way to do business in retail sector, I would not hesitate to work in area of Credit Finance.

Apart from Aditya Birla Finance Ltd, I would like to work for Aditya Birla Retail, it has been my area of interest, after joining IIM Trichy. I have tried to develop skills to understand Consumer Behaviour. Aditya Birla Group’s Retail Financial Services and Retail FMCG shall be my go to companies any time.
