Professional guitarist Ronik Laha tells us how learning at KIAMS can build on his past work experience

I heard a lot about the PGDM program at KIAMS, and studying at a premier institute with a multinational brand name like Kirloskar was a big draw for me. I knew it would help me to a great extent in my future career prospects and I see a change in me already. I think the program is polishing my skills and letting me shine as an individual and future professional.

I came to KIAMS with a lot of expectations and I can see they are being fulfilled in the best possible way. The faculty members are experienced and they are always available to help students out. We get to learn a lot from industry visits and other practical assignments, which have become a hallmark of studying at the institute.

The first thing that impressed me about the institute was the state–of-the-art facilities it has. From the well-equipped library to the recreational facilities, like the sports venues and swimming pool, everything is just spot on here. Every time we want to unwind after a long day, we can make the most out of the facilities to relax.

The campus atmosphere on the whole is absolutely great. There are students from all over the country and many different backgrounds are represented. It has been an enriching experience because of that, since I get to know about various cultures from our glorious country. I think I will be able to make friends for life here at the institute.

I have been here for three months and there have been several activities that have left their mark on me. The Freshers’ party was a lot of fun, but I would particularly like to mention the outbound training program that was held on campus. The program helped us know a lot about each other, our existing skills and true potential.

The highlight of that program for me was the fact that through physical activities we learned a lot about management techniques. There were inspirational lessons, which I will cherish for a long time. We also had opportunities to interact and learn from the alumni of the institute, and they told us how to prepare for interviews and how to communicate with managers, both of which will help us greatly in our future endeavours.

It has been an interesting journey for me, largely due to the fact that I came here after gaining more than a year’s work experience with a renowned group like ITC. I am also a professional guitarist, and I strum my guitar when I want to spread joy around or just want to relax. But right now, I am focused on the future and making the most out of everything the institute can offer me.
