I always wanted to pursue a career in the field of Finance. But little did I know, what it’d take to secure the job that I wanted. As soon as I graduated with a bachelor’s degree in Economics from Delhi University, I was confronted with the dreaded question that I had been running away from – What Next? After pondering upon it, I decided to pursue PGDM with Finance specialization. This meant overcoming a pre-conceived notion and convincing myself that it’s not at all going to be a cake walk and I will have to work hard for my dreams. This is where NDIM played a pivotal role, NDIM is not just an institution for me with a platter of opportunities to offer; but something more than that.
Today, the role of an institute is not only to develop academic excellence but also to motivate & empower its students to be critical thinkers, & productive members of an ever changing global society. That’s exactly what NDIM strives to achieve through a plethora of various activities, clubs, events providing an atmosphere for multifaceted development to channelize our potential in the pursuit of excellence.While studying at NDIM, I grew as an individual, interacting with people from different backgrounds, organizations, industries made me think like a professional from day one. First year taught me to act like a manager, working on deadlines for projects, assignments, examinations, activities which brought both, my best and worst, providing me a platform to prove myself . My second year of this journey more than met my expectations – be it in terms of handling work load or in terms of comprehending and synthesizing disparate concepts. read more

In the race for professionalism, state of the art technology and success, one thing has gone missing in our world-the human touch. Our business world is divided into B2B, B2C and now C2C, but isn’t something critical being left out in this classification. Perhaps H2H or Human to Human element in our interactions is what is often missing in our world.
