The Place I Always Call Home -‘Recharging’ at FIIB

What brought you to FIIB and how does it feel coming back?

“I have come to Delhi from Hyderabad for a meeting, on my way from the airport, I realized my laptop ran out of battery, I couldn’t think of any other place than FIIB and I came here to recharge my laptop and eventually myself. Now that I’ve come here, I realized what I’ve been missing all along – the familiarity of these walls, the still silence of FIIB library where we spent so many hours preparing for our exams, and the sense of belongingness that has gone missing in the corporate race. Some of my favorite memories of FIIB  include Prof. Santosh Sood, Marketing Professor who helped me and guided me, also the college visit to China with all the Classmates in the year 2012. The campus has changed quite a bit but the essence still feels the same. FIIB was always well known for being market relevant, and analytics woven curriculum is what FIIB being spoken about in the industry now.”


What were your expectations from the career path you’ve chosen, did they differ from reality?

“As a student, I always had an interest in aviation and aerospace, I also had a knack for management – I have always wondered whether I’ll find a job that will help me pursue my passion as well as fits my skills, and if I would, would I enjoy it? Having an FIIB MBA helps, what I’ve learnt in my classroom about logistics coincided with what was expected in the real world. FIIB and it’s alumni network helped me a great deal in getting my first job. That’s why stepping into my career, I knew the world had great plans for me – Throughout my career, I have worked with various companies in aviation logistics, and I have been travelling for my job since the last 3 years, what more could I have asked for?“

How are you managing your personal and professional life?

“I work in Hyderabad, my family stays in Bangalore, and my jobs have been taking me all around India and the world. Sometimes, it becomes difficult juggling personal and professional lives, but that’s also what makes me good at prioritization and time management. When there’s work calling, I answer, but after hectic travels, I take a break to spend time with family too. Between loving people who make me what I am and what I do, life’s been a wonderful ‘journey’ so far!”
