Tell us something about yourself
I have completed my BMS and MMS (Finance). I am appearing for the professional programme of Company Secretary of ICSI. I have also completed diploma in International Banking and Finance from Indian Institute of Banking and Finance (IIBF). I also hold NCFM certificates of various examinations conducted by NSE.
Tell us something about your college
M.L. Dahanukar College of Commerce has provided me with a platform which helps me nurture my teaching skills. It helps the students to be not only studious but also to discover and explore their skills. It nurtures the talent of the students and helps them learn and grow. This all is possible only because of the able leadership of our very own principal Dr. Madhavi Pethe and her unique quality of connecting to youth. Students are able to broaden their horizons academically as well as in non curricular activities under her leadership.
When did you join the teaching profession? What inspired you to choose this line?
I started teaching in the year 2009.
Which subjects do you teach? What do you love most?
As I have obtained a post graduation degree in finance I teach related subjects like Financial Management, International Finance, and Management Accounting and other banking and finance subjects too.
What is your teaching philosophy?
As a catalyst of learning process.
There is a shortage of eminent professors at bachelors’ level management. With more and more institutes joining the professional courses bandwagon, do you think professional / self-financing courses will become yet another Bcom?
Unfortunately this is a fact that the forthcoming batches have to face. Being a BMS graduate myself I know the intricacies required for the course. Being the early bird, previous batches made the best of the opportunity. But now it is the survival of the students who believe in gathering and application of knowledge in the practical business environment.
Today, we often come across students committing suicide out of failure, depression or tension of exams. What do you have to say about this?
Failures, mistakes and errors can be rectified. “Defeat is not final when you fall down; it is final when you REFUSE to get up”.
A famous quote says “A good teacher is like a candle – it consumes itself to light the way for others”. What would you like to say on this?
Who would you call as the best student so far in your memory?
All the students that I come cross every year are very special.
One touching incident that happened with you in your teaching career?
What message would you like to give to the young students?
Hardwork and persistence pays handsomely.
