Alumni Speak

Mallika Vikrant Sharma, Director, Pioneer Retail Pvt Ltd, Class of 2000-2002

This platform gives me a special way to say "Thank you!" to all my professors in KIAMS, for their outstanding knowledge and ability to impart it to us. Their ability to push us beyond our perceivable limits has been exemplary.
KIAMS impacted me and dared me to dream...dream to be out of the rat race, out of the corporate humdrums into creation of a brand of my own. This institution equipped me to cope with life skill issues and to pioneer business challenges. When the business values and ethics along with the power of knowledge gets internalised into the personality ,one can be confident to achieve the set goals without looking back . This strength and confidence has been given by team KIAMs.
Today, I owe my success of building "The Bel Street", chain of Italian Restaurants, to my professors and team KIAMS.

Jitender Singh, Project Manager, Decathlon Sports India, Class of 2000-2002

" KIAMS was a wonderful learning lab academically and culturally. It was an opportunity to understand how to live with and amongst others who might not share your point of view and/or agree on subjects in and out of the classroom. 
The campus and academic methodology encourages teamwork, initiative, healthy competition and taking the lead...the same qualities which one requires to survive and grow in a corporate environment. The same have helped me immensely during my career and will do so for the batches to come as well!!"

Sudeshna Srivastava, Senior Manager, HR, Genpact India, Class of 2001-03

My life at KIAMS has largely shaped me into the person I am today... some of my strongest aspirations found basis there, thanks to the guidance of Prof Nargundkar, Prof Kayastha, Dr. Pai, Dr. Iyengar and Prof. Kulkarni to name a few. Not only were they fine teachers but excellent mentors too.
I would go to the extent to say that this institution helped me discover myself... to become the confident HR person I am today as compared to the young and shy girl I was once upon a time. Shall remain grateful for the opportunity.

Muthaiah Narayanan, Program Manager, Ashok Leyland Nissan Vehicles Limited, Class of 2007-09

KIAMS – KIAMS according to me is Knowledge enrichment with Industry oriented Analysis Methods and Systems. The Pedagogy is closely aligned to the ever increasing methods, systems, analysis and needs of the industry and accordingly modified every year. It helps oneself to be industry ready at any point of time. The Activities like Industry integration, Corporate presentations, Summer Internship training, Capstone presentations, Outbound training sessions, Rural marketing fair, Management forums etc helped to obtain a holistic view on decisions that I take as a person or a professional. KIAMS continues to enrich my knowledge even today with a host of activities like Alumni mentorship for Summer placements, Mock interviews for final year students and discussions within the Alumni network for Personal / Professional growth. Thanks to KIAMS for enriching my live.

Basharat Abbas, Founder and CEO, Enthusionz Services Pvt. Ltd., Class of 2009-11

KIAMS has played an immense role in shaping me as a person. The faculty, resources, course structure, curricular and extracurricular activities at KIAMS aid in holistic development of the person. The tremendous experience in the system helps one to groom as a thought leader! 
I am an entrepreneur and have been in business from past 5 years. The business proposition of Enthusionz is to Empower Brands for the digital revolution, till now we have digitalised 100 brands. We are a startup, yet highly process oriented. Being profitable since inception that too while starting with zero investment in itself is a tremendous achievement. All this accomplishment is a testament of my learning at KIAMS and the way it has shaped my Life. I owe my life to KIAMS!
