Ekta Kumari joined Jaipuria Institute of Management as part of the 2012-14 batch. Ekta has a meticulous approach to life and believes in setting priorities in everything she does. With an impressive 78% in her Bachelors’ from West Bengal University of Technology (WBUT), one might’ve expected Ekta to be inclined towards an Operations or IT profile after passing out from Jaipuria Institute of Management, Indore. Surprisingly, Ekta has different plans.
“When I pass out from Jaipuria Indore, I would like to be placed in an HR profile. You see, organisations that are built around technology need Human Resource managers who understand technology so as to be able to acquire and retain the right kind of talent. This is the reason why I intend specializing in HR at Jaipuria Indore.”
Ekta believes that Jaipuria Institute of Management will empower her with the necessary communication and soft skills to become a successful HR manager.
“In terms of faculty, infrastructure and technology-driven classes, Jaipuria Indore is amongst the best B-school brands in the whole of central India. But my choice of B-school had a lot to do with my career aim of moving into the field of HR. Jaipuria Institute of Management made an excellent choice for me, not just because of its credentials as a B-school, but also because it is a great ‘finishing’ school. Since I come from a small town called Giridih (in Jharkhand), it was not really easy for me to open up to people from day one. But the faculty members of Jaipuria Indore play the dual role of educators and mentors to perfection. They help you come out of your shell.”
Ekta feels that from the Freshers’ Party to Encore, every day at Jaipuria Institute of Management is full of energy and action.
