Shreya Chakraborty, S & P Capital IQ shares her journey @ NDIM
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.
NDIM, apart from providing academic knowledge, is focused on the holistic development of an individual and gradually transforms a student to a Corporate ready professional. Moreover, engaging and prominent professors do not only match the reputation of the program, but the knowledge being passed on consistently helps students to meet their career ambitions.
Many people take a narrow view on the word “investment”, but for me the PGDM at NDIM has been my investment for a lifetime and has already started generating positive returns.
The exposure and experience that NDIM has provided me through various co-curricular & cultural activities, guest lectures, seminars, industry interactions etc. can’t be quantified. It has only increased the value of these 2 years spent at NDIM and has given me memories to be cherished forever. Though I had the wings but NDIM gave me the courage and the platform to fly high and achieve my dreams. I can’t thank NDIM enough for providing me with an opportunity to initiate my corporate journey with none other than S&P Capital IQ.
