Kumar Akshay shares his experience on selection in Dabur India
I don’t know from where to start, but my journey to success began when I joined NDIM. I never thought leaving a job to pursue a PGDM would be so fruitful. I joined NDIM with a dream and I had the will but NDIM showed me the way.
I had to convince a lot of people other than myself to allow me to take Marketing as my specialization, but then I knew it was not going to be a cakewalk for me. NDIM faculty mentors each and every student right from the beginning, with each semester passing by, I saw a difference in me. Here I got exposure to interact with various industry leaders who gave me actual insights of what corporate expects from an MBA graduate.
The exposure that NDIM provides is phenomenal. It is the exposure which uplifts student’s morals and motivates its students to keep striving for the best.
Sessions and more sessions of GUEST LECTURES helped me to be in my penultimate cell always. I would thank NDIM for offering its students a variety of live projects and summer internships which gave hands-on- learning as to how the industry works in actual scenario. NDIM always looks for the best of classroom programs and it has one of the best faculty who are ever ready to help and support the students.
During my PGDM I got number of opportunities to coordinate and organize events which was a great boost to my confidence: being an active member of Marketing club ”MARKOMANIA” and sports club ”SPARDHA”, I learnt to apply my text book learning and managerial skills in real life scenario by managing events, anchoring stage shows and by participating in various club activities during these two years. And above all coordinating these events taught me the most important management skill of building RELATIONSHIPS.
“Learning while doing” became my mantra.
Finally, I would like to thank the entire NDIM family for helping me in fulfilling my dream of starting my career with the FMCG industry and that too with a leader; “DABUR INDIA LTD”.
I thank NDIM for providing me with the best learning environment. Thanks for the best of faculty mentors with best friends around who have guided and supported me at every small step. It could have never been possible without them.
