“Be it in the classroom, library, lab, or in an organization, Vignana Jyothi Institute of Management (VJIM), Hyderabad, has truly made me work towards success, which I am completely grateful for.”
This is the adage that Roshni Desu, a PGDM student who has successfully completed her course from the VJIM, lives by. Having secured a placement at an organization like Monster India, she plans on spending the rest of her work life in a similar visionary environment that the current workplace offers. In her opinion, VJIM, its faculty members, and external professors have all together prepared her and many other students in ways they thought were impossible. She credits her accomplishment at VJIM and outside of it to her institute’s community, in particular, because she believes they have inspired her to go the extra mile and explore new experiences that were otherwise out of her comfort zone.
As someone who specialized in HR & Marketing, Desu says her interest in the said fields goes way back to the phase when she decided to pursue PGDM in Hyderabad. She believes, her transition and progress, both personally as well as professionally, has a lot to do with her internship experience at Abad Fisheries. The learnings, guidance, and a sense of responsibility were all developed there, at her place of work, and also by being in sales of the retail industry.
To this, she adds, “I can honestly say that prior to joining this VJIM, I doubted most of the opportunities that came my way. However, the institute has played a key role in changing my approach to things. It was because of my summer internship experience that I could clear the challenging interview procedure at Monster. It’s safe to say that my time spent in the classroom has advanced my problem-solving, communication, planning, teamwork, and organizing skills.”
Now a college graduate bracing for her work life and reflecting on her personal life, Desu says she owes a lot to her father since he’s had a major impact on her since childhood, and so, for having attained whatever she has, so far, she feels he has helped her become everything she is today.
Desu is among many other students who have earned success after graduating from VJIM. Through these kinds of stories and journeys of students, it seems certain that mentorship and guidance can do wonders in less time.
