My name is Madyantika Mehra and I am from Ajmer. I was looking for a college that would groom me into a management professional, which is why I joined Jaipuria Institute of Management, Indore. I love the campus. It is far away from the maddening crowd and hustle- bustle of the city. It’s green and peaceful, which makes it an ideal learning environment.
Of course, I was filled with doubts about the program and whether I had made the right decision. However, I was filled with excitement and promise because of the PGDM program, and with each passing day I realize that Jaipuria Institute of Management was absolutely the right choice. Dr. J.P. Upadhyay, Director, Jaipuria Institute of Management, Indore started the orientation program on a high note and there have been several guest speakers and renowned names in the industry who shared their valuable experience with us.
Besides learning about management concepts, we were given a healthy dose of spirituality in the program. Workshops like “art of living”, “know your true self” and yoga helped me discover my strengths and weaknesses. There were interesting games to keep things lively and fun. I was particularly interested in the “Jaipuria Got Talent” contest as it offered me an opportunity to launch a radio station. Oh yes, it did!
I am thrilled about the mentorship program because it helps us stay focused, builds an emotional bond with the mentor, and creates a comfort zone. Interactive sessions and conceptual learning are an integral part of classroom teaching. Jaipurians are groomed in an environment where the theory and practical are fused together for daily understanding of the business environment.
The hostel life has been one rollercoaster ride and seniors helped us settle in quickly with a big smile on their faces. The journey is already turning out to be special in more ways than one and I am all set to have two phenomenal years ahead.
