After graduating from M S Ramaiah College in Bangalore, Priyanka appeared for entrance tests to various management institutes. While she had quite a few options, Priyanka wanted to move closer to her home-town. High praise for Jaipuria Institute of Management from her friends in Delhi made her decided to join. Pretty soon, she had immersed herself in all the activities that the institute had to offer.
“I never let go of an opportunity to debate at Jaipuria Noida. I was also a committee member in events like Spardha – the annual sports event – and Udaan. Being a part of the literary club fest ‘Words Worth’ was also a wonderful experience. But my most memorable moment came when I won the collage-making competition.”
As a Campus Journalist, Priyanka enjoys contributing her editorial inputs across various media that Jaipuria Institute of Management has, such as blogs and the website. Another reason that Priyanka is quite popular among her colleagues at Jaipuria Noida is for her football skills!
“Jaipuria Noida gives its students a lot of freedom. The faculty members are awesome and interactive, and go out of their way to help us. We have one mentor per study group, who helps us improve upon our weaknesses through various activity-based exercises.”
Priyanka is targeting the profile of an assistant manager in the private banking sector on passing out of Jaipuria Noida. She is confident that the effective and innovative learnings at Jaipuria Institute of Management will translate into a good placement, and ultimately a great career in the corporate world.Read more
