Harshita Shukla, a student of Jaipuria Institute of Management, Noida credits her institute for the “go-getter” attitude she has acquired. As for deciding her career path, she has her internship to thank for that.
A native of Lucknow, Harshita received her Bachelor of Business Administration from National PG College in the same city, before choosing Jaipuria Noida for her post-graduate work. “I chose Jaipuria Institute of Management because the exposure that we get here is incredible,” said Shukla. She also said that the institute came highly recommended by her mentor “for the exceptional faculty that we have here and the experiential environment of education that is provided.”
It proved to be the right choice for her.
“My first year was full of learning and fun,” she said, pointing out that she secured the first rank in all three semesters “with the help of my faculty members and peers” and also won various debating competitions. “Jaipuria Institute of Management, Noida provided me with the opportunity to carry on my passion for writing and I became student editor of Verbajim, our college magazine.”
Shukla has high praise for the Jaipuria Noida faculty, citing in particular Dr. Prabhat Pankaj, who helped her decide on her specialisation – finance. Her thanks also go out to Professor Poonam Sharma. As she puts it, “They guided me in every sphere and helped me make many crucial decisions, like choosing electives, etc.”
But it was her summer internship that narrowed down the field of career choices open to her. “The internship gave me a platform to understand the real corporate world,” she said. “It not only helped me in getting a broader perspective on the corporate world, but helped me to decide the job profile I would love to work in – the area of research.”
“Jaipuria gave me a focus toward my goals and aspirations,” said Shukla.
“There was a hazy picture of what I wanted to achieve in life, but Jaipuria cleared all my doubts and gave me confidence to realise my dreams.”
