A memorable classroom experience in my B-school
I have started my Full-Time MBA at FMS two weeks back and my MBA journey till now at FMS, have been an amazing ride. The amount of learning that I have received from the teachers has been mind-blowing. I was very excited about my first class of ‘Marketing Management’. Our professor was on a trip and so we got Ms. Garima Gupta as our professor for the next two days. Marketing was totally a new concept for me. Professor told us that Marketing is one of the most interesting subjects that we’ll be studying. She told us that marketing is around us everywhere and we are making use of one or other sales and marketing skills in our daily lives unconsciously. We got a sneak peek into the concept of Marketing that day with the introduction to the concepts such as the various forces of the market and the segmentation, targeting and positioning concepts in brief.
It was an amazing experience and I am looking forward to the next two years at FMS with great hope.
Introducing – some of my crazy batchmates
My batchmates here at FMS are a really talented bunch of people. The level of academic and cultural diversity among the batch is commendable. I have had the pleasure to interact with some really crazy batchmates here.

ABG company I would want to work for
I would like to work for Grasim Industries Limited from the Aditya Birla Group of companies. Grasim is primarily a textile manufacturer and cement. The company does offer a lot of learning opportunities and for someone who wants to be a successful Marketeer in the future, working at Grasim could provide a huge opportunity for future career growth. In the textile and fashion industry, the responsibilities are immense for the people working as they are interacting with the public through their products.
