How they came up trumps

How they came up trumps

Rachit Kothari, an IIT Kharagpur alumnus, bagged one of the two gold medals from the flagship Post Graduate Programme in Management (PGP) 2013-15 and is deciding his future with two companies: “I am still deciding between the offers of BCG (Boston Consulting Group) in Dubai and The Blackstone Group in Mumbai,” he said.

After spending a number of years in various positions in the Tamil Nadu government, Kakarla Usha decided to enrol for the Post Graduate Programme in Public Policy and Management (PGPPM) 2013-2015, for a better role in policy making. “Going back to the disciplined regimen of classes and examinations after many years of worklife was challenging initially, but I grew to enjoy it,” said this 1994 IAS batch passout who bagged one of the gold medals in her course.

Usha’s classmate, Ramesha G, was the other gold medallist from the same course who has worked in the Income Tax Department since 2005 as an assistant commissioner and deputy commissioner in various states before enrolling into the course.

A true all-rounder, Anupam Nanda, gold medallist (for best all round performance) from the Post Graduate Programme in Software Enterprise Management (PGSEM), has been a top performer since his school days. While already exceptional in academics, he is also a keen sportsman. “It was tough juggling the course and my work,” he said.

Debaprasad Chatterjee, the lone gold medallist from the Executive Post Graduate Programme (EPGP) 2014-15, graduated with a BTech-MTech dual degree from IIT Kharagpur. When he signed up for the EPGP programme, he was technology architect for the manufacturing delivery unit at Infosys and had won many awards.

“I am hoping to join a role more different, more management-oriented in my company after the course,” he said.
