Jaipuria, Jaipur student, Krishna Kant Sharma, a small town boy, grabs the big opportunity of working with ICICI Securities
Whilst growing up in a small village outside Aligarh, Krishna Kant Sharma harboured big dreams. He wanted to pursue an MBA and get a foothold into the highly-competitive corporate world. He realised that this dream needed suitable support, which could only be provided by a reputable B-school in the country. That’s what made him decide on Jaipuria, Jaipur. Given his current status, it seems it was the best decision he could have made.
Today, Krishna Kant Sharma has embarked on his professional journey by bagging a job with ICICI Securities, and the world appears to be his oyester.
But Krishna remains well aware of the milestones of his journey, as well as the challenges he faced along the way. He reminiscences about his time at the institute, and says, “I can never forget those two years of my life. I had heard about Jaipuria Institute of Management, its four campuses and the centralised system it has. That made perfect sense to me. I also got a positive feedback about the institute from my elders. I realised that it could offer me many opportunities to build my personality and knowledge base. That’s the reason it was the only institute I considered for my PGDM,” he said.
And from day one, his learning experience was comprehensive and his growth tremendous, says Krishna. He thanks his faculty members at the institute who were always available to support, guide and motivate him through the program. He believes that the management concepts he learned at the institute will stay with him through his professional journey and the unique teaching methods will have a long-lasting impact.
Krishna’s summer internship with Amul Ice Cream in Jaipur was another exciting experience for him. He worked in the sales department and got a chance to see how the management concepts taught in theory were applied in a practical sense. Since he will also be working in sales with his new employers, he believes his SIP experience will be invaluable and enable him to make his mark.
Talking about his new role of a Senior Relationship Manager with ICICI Securities Krishna says, “My goal will be to meet the revenue target across a certain set of customers by mastering client relationship. I will also be responsible for providing solutions for customers by evaluating their financial needs. Preparing and maintaining sales calls reports and all relevant MIS will be another responsibility I will have to handle.”
Clearly, Krishna is well aware of the task at hand when he switches roles from being a management student to a professional. He believes this is an important transition for aspirants, and one that is facilitated by pursuing a professional degree program like he did. “The course I did from Jaipuria has huge relevance in today’s world. It is packed with many activities including presentations and role playing that develop students’ personalities and communication skills. These are important aspects of being a manager in the corporate world, and the program prepares you well for that,” he says. With the backing he’s received from his institute, Krishna has made a solid start in his professional journey. And this is only the beginning for the young man from a small village, who is ready to go places and make a lasting impact.Read more
“My SIP gives me the opportunity to understand the dynamics of real corporate rigmaroles,”
“I just want to learn as much as I can, in this limited period of two months”, says Shubham Barthwal, PGDM Class of 2015, Jaipuria Institute of Management, Jaipur, who recently bagged a Summer Internship Project in Marketing and Event Management with Pearson. He is going to be attached with the marketing division during his internship, and will work on Pearson’s brand perception in the market through events specifically targeting children and their parents. Shubham explains the responsibilities of his position: “The objective is to reach the customer where Pearson’s reach has been limited. We will be marketing through events, and the important thing is to manage the event within the purview of the budgets that are allocated to me and my team”. The team gets together in the morning and plans for the day.

“I owe a lot to professor Vijayvargay and professor garg of Jaipuria Institute of management Jaipur. They prepared me exhaustively for the bank of Baroda interviews.”
Vyom Gupta passed out of Jaipuria Institute of Management Jaipur in June 2012. Placed on campus at Jaipuria Jaipur with the Bank of Baroda, Vyom is currently placed at Jodhpur (Main Branch).
“The most important and enjoyable part of my job is dealing with NRI customers, and verifying various types of transactions entered by the clerical stafflike passing ofCheques and opening of new accounts. Since I’m one of the young faces in the branch, many of the customers approach me even if the query does not relate to my department. I try my best to get their job done, without stepping on anybody’s toes. This has earned me goodwill with the customers, and appreciation from my superiors.”
Vyom’s teachers at Jaipuria Institute of Management recall him as soft-spoken, yet someone with very high moral values, with the ability to call a spade a spade. In all likelihood, the recruiters found his forthright honesty a desirable trait in a Finance Manager in Bank of Baroda.
“I owe a lot to my Faculty at Jaipuria Institute of Management Jaipur, especially Professor Lokesh Vijayvargay and Professor S.P.Garg. After failing to clear ITC and Indian Bank, I could’ve easily fallen prey to disappointment, but both of them did not let me give up. They kept me pepped up and prepared me exhaustively for the Bank of Baroda interviews. They kept on harping that the profile offered by Bank of Baroda would be custom-fit for me.”
Vyom Gupta believes that his relationship with Jaipuria Institute of Management Jaipur has grown stronger after passing out, as he has begun to see the logic in many of its practices. He is confident that once he has learnt the tricks of his trade he will make Jaipuria Institute of Management Jaipur proud.Read more
