A Stepping Stone Towards Touching My Dreams

“No matter how big your dreams are, God always has a plan for you.”

My journey at Fortune Institute of International Business began on exactly the next day when I got over with my engineering exams. And before I realized, these two years at FIIB passed away at the blink of an eye.

The Cruise: After completing my 10th and 12th from Delhi Public School, Vasant Kunj, New Delhi, I completed my B. Tech(ECE) in 2012. The two years at FIIB have not been easy. Stepping from B.Tech to MBA, it was a complete roller coaster ride for me. The faculty, the staff, the management and my fellow colleagues have helped and guided me throughout. Be it conclaves, fests, events, seminars, Sam Walton exchange program or even lectures, FIIB has always been fun-filled and has shaped me into a better individual with each and every passing day.

The Outcome: The rewards were overwhelming! I was among the top 10 percent of my batch throughout, was a student editor of the editorial board of FIIB, co-head of the Corporate Interaction Committee, an active member of the Marketing and Human Resources club, was acknowledged as the student blogger and the list goes on. With the help of the CRC (Corporate Relations Center) team at FIIB, the backbone for all placement and internships for the students, today I am placed at Lloyds Venture, Gurgaon, India. But it wasn’t an easy flower to pluck! A lot of hard work was put in by the business communication department of our college in making us ready for it. Regular training and group discussions, writing skills, general knowledge and soft skills helped me to polish my skill sets and become industry ready.

One thing that I am really impressed with FIIB is the course curriculum and the faculty. With subjects and electives so dynamic and up to date, it just makes studies very interesting and interactive. I believe I am very lucky to have been guided and mentored by a few of the best professors I have known.

FLP: The FIIB Leadership Program was the best thing that happened to me all this while. I, along with 15 others had joined this cohort few months back in 2013, where we worked together on various projects and internships. My personal experience comprised of an internship with Dun & Bradstreet; working closely with an NGO and handling their social media and attending high teas with industry professionals from time to time. I am eagerly looking forward to our outbound training program which is yet to take place.

And the end result of the learning at FIIB definitely doesn’t end here. I am extremely confident that whatever I have learnt during these two years will help me in my career ahead and act as a supporting pillar to my success. I am extremely contented with my selection in one of the reputed organizations and this being my first job; I am looking forward to a successful corporate life. However, I will miss my college and everything about it.
