Jipson Joseph is a management student of the 2012-14 batch of Jaipuria Institute of Management, Indore. According to Jipson, it was the ‘feel-good factor’ that made him decide on Jaipuria Indore as his choice of B-school.
“I was already aware of ‘Brand Jaipuria’ while doing my graduation. Before joining Jaipuria Indore, I visited the campus, and the highly qualified faculty and staff impressed me. The completely digital campus was also a major reason why I finally decided on Jaipuria Indore.”
A native Keralite, Jipson is born and brought up in Jabalpur. He completed his intermediate from St. Aloysius School and did his B.Com in 2012 from St. Aloysius College, Jabalpur. Jipson loves music, and is blessed with a beautiful voice as well. He is also fond of reading, and has just finished reading Winners Never Cheat (John Huntsman) and has begun The Fifth Discipline (Peter Senge).
Jipson is involved in a lot of co-curricular activities at Jaipuria Indore. He is part of the Media Relations Club and as an NEN E-leader, Jipson was actively involved in organising the first E-week (Entrepreneurship Week) at Jaipuria Indore. As the HR Club coordinator, he was one of the organisers of the ‘Thinking Out of the Box’ workshop. Jipson recently helped organise a fun event, the Chaao competition, which is a game similar to Kabaddi.
“I try to be part of everything that’s happening at Jaipuria Indore, whether inside the campus or outside. There’s a lot to learn from these opportunities. My best moment so far has been winning the skit competition in Encore 3 – the Annual Festival of Jaipuria Indore. We got a standing ovation from the audience and the judges.”
Jipson says that seniors at Jaipuria are “mentors and guides”, and feels that there is no senior-junior gap at all. He describes the faculty at Jaipuria Indore as learned, energetic, motivational and always eager to help a student who is willing to learn.
“I am very happy with the exposure that I’ve received in the last nine months at Jaipuria Indore. I am sure this is only the beginning and there are many more interesting things ahead. Being part of the strong Jaipuria network, I am confident that all aspects of my career are well taken care of.”
Jipson believes in the saying, ‘Do your best, and leave the rest to God’. After his two years at Jaipuria Indore, Jipson would like to build a career as an HR specialist.
