Sagar Agarwal belongs to the city of Bikaner, from where he also did his BBA. He appeared for the MAT and CAT exams. In his CAT exams he scored a percentage of 94. 57% (scored good percentiles in both), which opened up opportunities for him after graduation. He applied for admission to Jaipuria for clear reasons like its brand name, fees, faculty, infrastructure and placements. He was also looking for value for his investment. His initial queries and research into top MBA colleges in India brought him to Jaipuria Jaipur and he considers himself fortunate for getting selected.
Sagar is a fun-loving guy who likes interacting with people. He is glad about the extra-curricular opportunities Jaipuria provides. He is happiest being a part of skits during college events, anchoring shows and coordinating activities like the college annual sports meet. He also represented the college in ‘Chanakya’, an event organized by AIMA. His favourite, however, remains anchoring and he is looking forward to more events. “I have enjoyed academics and co-curricular activities equally, but anchoring was the most enjoyable experience for me so far”, said a well-satisfied Sagar. He thinks the sports meet and national workshop were the most memorable events of his academic life in Jaipuria owing to the learning and rapport building they facilitated. Academics mean a lot more than a degree and classroom learning for Sagar. He is working on his personality at this point of time and says, “My expectation is more for grooming and of course, learning the basic concepts of Management. I want to learn about industry expectations from a PGDM.” A very optimistic Sagar is convinced that the institute’s brand will help him create a place for himself and give him an edge over others. In the few months that he has spent at Jaipuria, Sagar claims he has evolved as a person and a professional. He doesn’t hesitate any more in taking his place in front of an audience and is holding his own. “I feel grateful to the people who advised me to join the best management institute”, says Sagar.
Sagar shares his wonderful experience with his seniors, saying, “I have found a new respect for the seniors I have met here. Not only have they guided us from day one but have also involved us and encouraged us to be a part of all college activities!” He thinks this cooperation and motivation is very helpful in getting a fresh student to settle down and find his way around.
The faculty support has also impressed him and he is all praise for the innovative teaching methods being leveraged by them to help clear concepts. His basic satisfaction comes from the fact the faculty enables a clear understanding of industry concepts and their implementation by bringing in industry interaction into the classroom.
