But I wasn’t too sure of my decision even as I joined KIAMS. I even thought of shifting to another college at one point. I am glad I didn’t. We had a small and interactive peer group. The batch was supportive, yet extremely competitive. A peer group of 11 boys and 16 girls, our main focus was on maintaining our GPA throughout.
Doing my majors in marketing and finance, I was able to easily strike the right balance between studies and fun. In the first year, we used to enjoy our journey to the hostel from college. The time spent with each other is something that is deeply engraved in my heart. On getting to the hostel, I focused on studying. Now that in 2nd year we have considerably fewer classes, we have more time for fun. Studies are never affected and we keep the right balance. I think this is one of the benefits of our small peer group.
Professor Sunil BrijKishan is one member of the faculty I am deeply indebted to. His Business Communication classes helped me overcome my stage fright and helped me to develop skills and confidence in public speaking.
All this greatly helped me in my summer internship where I joined Liberty Shoes as a finance researcher. My job was research intensive. I have now been placed at Genpact in the management department. My job profile is growth-oriented and is inclined towards statistical research.
I believe that not being nervous and just being myself has helped me greatly in securing this job. KIAMS has been instrumental in my growth as an individual. For this, and for everything that life has to offer now, I am grateful to KIAMS for making me what I am today.
