The IFMR GSB Experience
"Our batch was an 'experimental' batch of only twenty students so were a close knit and diverse group. This in itself provided opportunities to bring about innovative ideas and diverse opinions to the table. Combine with this, the teaching methods employed by some of the faculty, involving participatory and practical activities and aligned scoring techniques, has inspired a'learning by doing' culture that i have carried forward in my professional career as well."

Preethi Rao, Associate Director, LEAD at Krea University

The Days that Were
"We were at the campus at Kothari Road, Nungambakkam. It was a much smaller campus, but it was always bustling with energy, all through the day. Students, faculty, visiting professors, the hostel – I only remember my student days to be filled with excitement, energy and entertainment. We were surrounded by a pool of rich resources to learn from, and we made full use of them."

Balasubramanian Srinivasan, HR Professional, Indigo Airlines

The Takeaways
“IFMR GSB provided a strong foundation to learn in a diverse environment with excellent faculty and resources. Ability to multi-task and switch between academics, research projects, various student activities, and excel in all of them were my cherished memories. I got a chance to hone my skills in student committees particularly in the placement committee which provided experience to servant leadership and consensus building across different stakeholders. All of these were key skills that helped me stay grounded and perform as a professional today."

Ramkartic Shankar,Product Manager at Arcesium

To the MBA Aspirants
“You have to be extremely consistent and be a huge self-learner and independent. Understand whatever task you take up conceptually, learn everything you can, do your research. Moreover, be disciplined. And most importantly, take risks. At IFMR, if I had been afraid to give presentations, I would have never discovered my love for making them. Also, how are you going to fail at something you haven’t even tried?”

Christabel James,MD Riskspan

Staying Connected
“ I’m still connected to my professors from IFMR GSB. The outreach initiative to the alumni is very useful, and we constantly get updates from the team on opportunities and industry events that could potentially add value to our careers.”

Kabyayan Roy, Data Science Analyst, Accenture Strategy and Consulting

Learning from the Experts
“ Hands down, we had access to the best faculty! Both the permanent faculty as well as visiting professors were great. I remember some of them were industry leaders during the week and our professors by the weekend. I really enjoyed the courses taught by the professors of Quantitative Finance.”

Rajiv Mohapatra, Principal Product Manager (Modern Risk and Finance)

The Summer Internship
I had the privilege of interning with the Reserve Bank of India (RBI) for my summer internship. I worked with the Department of Non-Banking Supervision (DNBS) with a focus on NBFC-MFIs as the subject matter. But the internship journey started even before joining the RBI regional office and that was, while preparing for its interview. The two-month internship experience and the interview preparations gave a lot of insights into how India's central bank and regulatory body regulates the banking system in the country. I shall always cherish this opportunity and experience!
