The campus of IBMR was buzzing with energy and excitement with the arrival of a new batch of post-graduate students recently. The students, who are pursuing the Post-Graduate Diploma in Management (PGDM) and MBA, spoke to Metrolife about this phase of their life.

Neha Gupta, a PGDM student, says that the students received a warm welcome at the Institute and that made them comfortable. “We already feel settled, thanks to the welcoming nature of our faculty members,” says the BCom graduate from Jamshedpur adding that it was her dream to come to Bangalore. “I had heard a lot about the City, which is the reason I wanted to come here. I am hoping to explore the City soon.”
The students have also been taking advice from their seniors prior to joining the Institute.

“We met our seniors, who explained the dos and don’ts. I decided to pick this college since the people whom I spoke to suggested it,” says Vikash Maurya, a
student. Karuna Saxena from Bhopal is hopeful of doing well over the next two years. “I have come here with a lot of expectations. Along with doing well in academics, I want to take part in extracurricular activities as well. I require a good academic record to fulfill my dreams,” she says.

It is after interacting with alumni of the institute that Karuna zeroed in on this college. Having her family here also made him choose this college. “I heard good reviews about the Institute from my seniors. I find the faculty members here good. There is much to learn here, including business ethics, which we can put to practice later on in life,” she says.

   A new beginning can always be worrisome. That was the case for Justin Egnesh who was excited and nervous. “Since I was going to be away from home for the first time, I was apprehensive. But I am here in the City for the job opportunities it offers,” says Justin. He adds, “I have a lot of expectations from the college. The good part is that the teaching is very good here.”

Satish Singh says the friendly environment has made the students comfortable. “From the time we entered, everyone had a smile on their faces and interacted with us. Even though the building of our college is small, the faculty is much better here than it would have been anywhere else,” he says.

Satish says that he is impressed with the kind of experience faculty members come with. “While some have been giving lectures and seminars in colleges across the country, others have over 30 years of teaching experience. I am really impressed with their
experience,” he says.
