A student in the batch of 2012-14 at Jaipuria Institute of Management, Jaipur, Vijay Lalwani comes from a strong business community of Ahmedabad. Having decided on studying Business very early in life, Vijay did his BBA from the prestigious GLS Institute of Management, Ahmedabad. When the time came to do his post graduation in business administration, Jaipuria Jaipur was his first choice for a number of reasons.
“Jaipuria Institute of Management, Jaipur has top-class faculty and great infrastructure. After the IIMs, it is the best B-school within reach of Ahmedabad – my home-town. Of course, being part of the prestigious ‘Brand Jaipuria’ is an honour for anyone.”
Vijay speaks highly of his seniors, who have been of great help whenever he has sought guidance. Being a hosteller, Jaipuria Jaipur is like a second home to him now. The round-the-year extracurricular scenario at Jaipuria Institute of Management has kept Vijay busy in his first year. A keen cricketer, Vijay was part of the inter college sports events. Apart from club activities, Vijay Lalwani has been in the organising team for events like the International Conference and the flagship annual fest of Jaipuria Institute of Management, Abhyudaya.
“Jaipuria Institute of Management provides you with the right platform. It is up to us as mature individuals to decide what to do with it and choose what skills we want to acquire. Not only are we shown numerous options in the business world today, we are also given specific training to become entrepreneurs and professionals.”
Vijay Lalwani believes that Jaipuria Jaipur is the best thing to have happened to him. He is positive that two years down the line, he will get a much better placement compared to his position prior to joining Jaipuria Institute of Management, Jaipur. He is targeting a Finance profile in the corporate world on passing out of Jaipuria Jaipur.
“Right from the beginning of my BBA, I’ve targeted a financial profile. I am good at number-crunching, and was able to acquire good knowledge of business finance during my BBA in GLS Ahmedabad. Jaipuria Institute of Management has helped me gain greater practical knowledge about finance, and has given me a wider exposure to industry. I’ve had the opportunity to interact with the best from the financial domain during the Annual Finance Conclave and other seminars at Jaipuria Institute of Management. I’ve gained valuable insights into not just Financial Services, but Banking, Insurance and Accounting as well.”
A strong optimist, Vijay Lalwani emphasises that if you believe in your own abilities, destiny and people around you will help you achieve your dreams. He is aiming to set up his own business five years down the line, after gaining enough experience in the corporate world. He sees Jaipuria Institute of Management as the first and most important step towards fulfilling his dreams.
