“I am proud to have fulfilled my father’s dreams,” says Khushboo Jagtiani, PGDM batch 2013 – 2015, Jaipuria Institute of Management, Lucknow.
“I come from a background where nobody had the opportunity of higher education. I am my parents’ only daughter, so all their hopes were pinned on me. I remember my dad telling me every night that I have to fulfill all of his dreams. He said he couldn’t fulfill them owing to family reasons, but I have to do it. He also expected me to be a daughter and son to him. It feels great that I was able to make his dreams come true”, shares an excited Khushboo Jagtiani, who has secured the position of Customer Service Manager with IndusInd Bank through a campus placement.
Khushboo has a dual specialization in Finance and Marketing, although she has always preferred analytics and banking rather than a field job. Having been awarded Vice Chairperson’s Silver Medal for securing second position for academics by Jaipuria, Lucknow, she feels honored and confident about moving out into the working world. Khushboo credits her faculty for her success:“As an institute, Jaipuria has amazing infrastructure; however, it’s the faculty that made all the difference to my life. I barely had any guidance from home, and it’s the faculty who guided me through my confusion and struggles. I have never felt alone here since I could approach any teacher at any moment. And it is not just about studies –I knew I could consult them for any guidance.” She especially mentions her mentor Shri V.V Ratna and Ms. Kavita Pathak, who provided her with immense support throughout her journey at Jaipuria.
An ambitious girl, Khushboo aspires to reach the level of national head or a regional head of the bank. Her dreams are strongly supported by hard work and this is evident in her high score in the Summer Internship Project. She has pleasant and special memories of the institute. She fondly remembers the Super 50 Program, where the institute selects 50 students through a rigrous selection procedure that includes written tests, group discussions and interviews. After this experience and all the hard work she put forth, Khushboo feels prepared to face the world and is proud to be an alumnus of Jaipuria Institute of Management, Lucknow.
