St. Xavier’s is an absolutely brilliant place to study in. You get an all-round development here that you get nowhere else. Apart from being one of the best colleges in the country, it is known almost around the world.
When did you join BMS? Which year you are in?
In 2009. I am in Second Year.
What inspired you to choose BMS and not any other course?
I was initially overwhelmed by the description given by a former BMS Student so I chose it. It sounded like it gave you a better option rather than pursuing a simple BA course.
According to you, what is BMS all about?
BMS is all about time management and leadership and co-operation. Unless you synergise these three factors, you will go nowhere and you need them to do anything in life.
What’s special about your college? What do you love about it?
My college has a wonderful atmosphere to study in and makes you actually feel you are learning rather than just studying. The facilities it offers and the opportunities you get to pursue through Xavier’s in unparallel. And our faculty are really good.
Who is your favorite teacher/faculty? Why?
My favourite Prof. is Kishu Daswani, our Law Professor. He not only makes Law really interesting and fun, but is so knowledgeable and awesome. He’s the only professor you wish will go on and on and on. His lectures were always amazing to attend.
What has BMS life taught you?
BMS has taught to me to adapt myself to any situation. It has helped me to work smarter, if not harder and learn more about the world around us in general.
What was the happiest moment in BMS? The saddest? The most memorable?
The most memorable time was definitely our recent Industrial Visit to Rajasthan.
Who in your life has influenced the most?
My dad has influenced me the most. He keeps encouraging me to follow my dreams and do all the things he couldn’t do.
As a BMS student, what changes would you like to bring in management education?
I wish it was made more practical and more interesting.
What would you advice someone planning to do BMS?
Do it only if you truly you want to do a MBA later on. If not, don’t do it. If you are more into history or psychology and even think BMS might be fun, don’t do it and spoil your life.
