MDI Gurgaon – A Walk Through The Red Brick Walls

Management Development Institute is one of the best colleges in the country. I feel honoured to be a part of MDI fraternity. Since the college has started, I have enjoyed every single minute of it. It’s really great to live with friends and share every moment with them. I am thrilled to be back in the classroom after 3 years of work experience. The very environment of the college is exciting.  A lot of activities happening at the same time with strict deadlines gives me adrenaline rush. In just one month, I have learnt to juggle multiple things at the same time. It is a lot of fun as you get to spend time with your peers and have a fantastic learning. People on campus are from various backgrounds and cultures and I feel it is a golden opportunity to learn and interact with them. Along with it, I get to hear real life experiences from several industry leaders which are a completely new experience. Even in the classrooms, the focus is on learning through application of concepts in real life scenarios. This gives a deep understanding of the problem a manager faces every day and how to deal with them. Innovative ideas are appreciated and discussed that keep the classroom fun. MDI is strategically located which gives an advantage of being in close proximity to the corporates. The campus is beautiful and the buildings are meticulously designed so as to have a great sense of pleasure. At the same time, it’s not always about work and studies. There are a lot of student-run clubs and committees that empowers us to take the leadership role, apply our knowledge and execute various initiatives. A lot of cultural and sports activities take place at the college that keeps the place lively.


I would like to work for ‘Aditya Birla Retail Limited’ because being an HR aspirant, FMCG attracts me. There are a lot of challenges regarding human resources in FMCG. FMCG is a fast paced industry with new opportunities coming all the time. In order to keep up with the pace, employees should be ready to the changing requirements. A lot of training and hiring needs to be done to make the workforce ready so that they can work efficiently. This requires a lot of strategic thinking from an HR manager. An HR manager should be able to anticipate the future needs of the company and work towards it.
