Shift Your Focus To Practical Learning

Please tell us why you chose Logistics and Supply Chain Management as your career? Walk us through your FIIB journey.

“When I joined MBA I wanted to map my career around Marketing as it requires generating fresh and unique ideas for competition survival. I knew that I am a creative go-getter and will come up with praiseworthy ideas to shape the market better. But, eventually, when I studied Operations, my thoughts regarding the ‘What-s, Why-s, When-s, How-s, Where-s and To Whom-s’ of Logistics & Supply Chain took over me. With every class/session that I attended, my curiosity became noticeable and there was no turning back from there. This was despite the fact that Marketing provides multiple career options, but I just wanted to get into something that required immediate presence of mind to avoid industry losses.

I scored better in Operations in every semester. To add to this, I was blessed to have an amazing mentor having Operations as his background. His vision for Operations was matchless. Till date, I am grateful to have met him. We used to have discussions about Supply Chain and Operations which contributed to my broader understanding and limitless zeal to get into Operations & Supply Chain Management. I ended up getting a Gold Medal in Operations during my FIIB journey in fact. I simply wanted to implement all that I read about Operations in my real life. I was aware that there will be challenges and several unpredictable situations but that did not mellow my fire. My perception about production, manufacturing, logistics became clear and I am at complete bliss with my choice of career.”

What fond memories did FIIB bring back when you entered the campus after so long?

“The basic structure of the college is just the same. Just because the professors who taught me are no more in the campus, the connection was a little lesser. I just missed the faculty of my time. Rest, the memories were there for sure to warm my heart in this Delhi cold. Sharad sir was serendipity actually and this made my day.”

Any suggestions for the FIIB students who want to take up Operations?

“Logistics & Supply Chain Management are not monotonous. If they are, then they are not what you think you have put yourself into. Individuals who can handle challenging situations with sheer confidence are the superheroes here. Please note that there will be challenges which will definitely make you question your potential frequently. But these challenges will hone your skills and will provide you with countless opportunities to step out of your comfort zone. Follow your curriculum like your Bible. At times try your best and shift your focus more on practical learning. This will always keep you a few steps ahead of the crowd. Last but not the least, be ready to roll up your sleeves to get the work done!”
