Tell us something about yourself
Well I am a management student who enjoys cooking, creative writing and reading biographies, non-fiction and selective light fiction. Being good with Human understanding, I will most probably be taking up HR as my specialization. The cause of “effects of domestic violence on children” has always been close to my heart and I hope I can do something for the same in the future, either by setting up an NGO or through CSR activities.
Tell us something about your BMS college
My college had an environment that supported the overall growth of a student. A lot of whatever little confidence I have in me is probably because the opportunities that my college offered and the support of my teachers. Infact, it was this environment and the guidance of my teachers that I could make myself worthy enough to be chosen as the “best girl-academics and co-curricular, Degree college” in final year. And my most memorable moment, I would say was after winning the best girl trophy, when my teachers said that it was a “well deserved achievement.”
What was the first step after completing BMS? What are you doing currently?
I joined in BMS because I always had this vision of re-defining the way CSR functions in our country. I still believe that a lot has to be done on that aspect. Profits and social responsibility can REALLY go hand-in-hand and we need a system where CSR is treated as one of the purposes of the business and not just a legal obligation. Also, technically, we are the country to initiate HR practices like PFs and other employee benefits way before the European and American market, if I am recollecting right, during the times of Jamsetji Tata. But unfortunately, India is not really known for its HR practices, when we have every reason to be a leader in that domain. It is with these visions that I joined BMS, and I am currently pursuing my MMS with the same ones.
Who in your life has influenced you the most?
Jaswinder Sanghera, who runs the charity “Karama Nirvana” in UK for the victims of Forced Marriages. She was herself a victim of it but her journey from a victim to a winner is truly inspirational. I came to know of her story through her autobiography titled, “Shame.”
Has BMS course really helped you in the corporate world or in MBA? As BMS alumni, what changes would you like to bring in management education? Do you think internship/work experience is a must before pursuing MBA?
Since I am doing my MMS, ofcourse BMS has helped me a lot with the syllabus. I had a science background till 12th std, but owing to my BMS background, I don’t find it much of an issue dealing with the MMS subjects, which are more or less similar to BMS. Well I am pursuing my MMS without any internship or prior work experience. So, my I believe that you don’t really have to have work experience compulsorily as your resume can only help you in getting a job, its your skills and caliber that play a pivotal role in the way your career shapes up.
What is the ideal career option after BMS? Why?
I think it’s a subjective topic. It depends from person to person. BMS helps you in developing your managerial skills, but then, it depends upon your personality as what your career should be. For example, for someone who likes up-beat and vibrant informal management, Event management is their field, while for someone with good PR and communications, its mass MBA in mass communication.
What message would you like to give to the current BMS batches?
Well, I don’t think I am anyone to advise/suggest/give message to anyone. Its their life, their call.
Your suggestions/feedback for BMS.co.in?
Ahhh well, thank you guys, for all the last minute study materials, they really helped 😉 But seriously, You guys are doing a great job. My best wishes with you.
