Tell us something about your college
Our college is a small college recently established so in a growing stage. It is an institution which cares about its students and is trying to give the best to them.
When did you join this profession? What inspired you to choose this line?
I entered this profession in 2007. Love for children inspired me to take this profession.
As a Coordinator, do you also teach any subjects? If yes, which subjects you teach and
which you love the most?
Yes, I teach marketing, HRM as well as some banking & insurance related subjects. I love to teach marketing.
How are the roles and responsibilities of a Coordinator different from that of a
faculty? Do you like being a Faculty or a Coordinator? Which helps you to connect more with students?
A co-ordinator has to implement all amendments made by the University. He/She has to act as a link between other teachers & students. He/She has to look after Ty students the most. Solving disciplinary matters or solving problems of teachers are some of the functions of a co-ordinator. I think I would like to be as a faculty because as a co-ordinator many times I remain engaged in carrying out administrative responsibilities & do not get time to devote myself towards teaching. It is true that co-ordinatorship connects me with more students.
Who in your life has influenced the most?
Some of my teachers & my father.
What should BMS/Management education mean to a student?
BMS improves confidence level of a student. Gives him knowledge about different concepts from management.

studies and be a part of college fests/events?
We cannot make it compulsory as it is the matter of interest.
Tell us something about your college students’ performances?
Year by year the performance is improving. We are getting good students as the years are passing by. They are getting prizes in different intercollegiate fests arranged by other colleges.
