Harpreet Singh shares his experience on selection in Bajaj Corp.
The quality of faculty here is very good and they take deep interest in academic development of scholars. I have personally benefited immensely from my interactions with the faculty of the Marketing and Operations department. The course designed is quite good and the timelines for various milestones are well-communicated. Apart from academics, the institute provides comprehensive extra-curricular activities via numerous clubs which are commendable for overall development of students.
The initial semester of coursework helped me stay abreast with the latest studies regarding sales & marketing and facilitated me in identifying my area of interest. The journey thereafter required continued passion and determination to explore and add intellectual and scholarly value to my chosen fields (Marketing and Operations).
I got an opportunity to work for an NGO-Shri Sadguru Sewa Sangh Trust-Bhopal(M.P.)- on a CSR live project and it was the most memorable time which I still cherish. Though a week in an NGO was not enough but still learnt various things which I imbibed and I am sure those lessons will help me as I am heading towards my future life.
Being a member of the Marketing and IT club, I got various opportunities to organize/plan a number of events, had an great experience while interacting with other B-schools of Delhi, and giving presentation to other management students about various marketing events of NDIM, and I still love those moments that helped me to come out of my comfort zone and evolve as a professional. I learnt the importance of team work and time management.
“Summer Training”, one of the deciding factors of choosing a career path post MBA, was quite rigorous and wide-ranging in Colgate-Palmolive (India) Ltd., it helped me to get deep insights about working of the FMCG industry. It was a grueling internship, but I realized towards the end of it as to how much I got to learn, which is what mattered the most. The best thing at NDIM, I must admit, is the faculty. The faculty strives a lot in bringing best out of every student, and they helped to clear all apprehensions, doubts and fears that I had, and in addition to it, lot of group presentations, research work, extempore did a lot of value addition to my personality and I could see a concrete change in my confidence. My mentors had the perfect knack of detecting my weaknesses and enhancing my strengths, which helped me a lot. By the time I was through this exhaustive coaching, I was mentally prepared to take on the grueling Aptitude/GD/PI rounds meant for the coveted Placements.
I firmly believed in myself and never gave up, though sometimes the things were not favorable, but at the end I got what I deserved and everything fell in its place. I got an excellent placement with Bajaj Corp Ltd.
I thank my alma matter, NDIM for providing me the platform to perform, learn and enter this highly competitive corporate world with such ease. Wishing all the best to my juniors.
