There is no better specialization than International Business!

Tell us something about your journey in FIIB. What made you choose International Business?

“FIIB gifted me the best two years of my life. It had designed me the way I am today. I was from a small town, Odisha. The exposure to a cosmopolitan city helped me to meet and understand people from different walks of life closely. My professional skills were polished here and I learnt how to keep calm in stressful situations. The time which I had invested in FIIB is giving me dividends till date to my overall life. 

When I had joined FIIB for my postgraduate degree, it offered only the specialization of International Business. I must say that if one specializes in International Business, he s/he is bound to get several opportunities to make a remarkable career.”

What were your expectations from your career, did they differ from reality?

“Well, the process of IB is self-explanatory. But after the US attack in 2001, there was a big crisis. Only a few overseas organizations were ready to work with foreign firms. This lead to a global downfall. So,  there was no specific difference in what I learnt in class and what happened in the outside world. I can say, I had the right exposure and learning at FIIB.  It was just the global situation that made all the unpredictable differences.”

 What fond memories did your visit to FIIB awaken?

“FIIB will forever hold a special place in my heart. This institute shaped my personality and my overall approach towards my professional life. The memories that were awaken were several. This is the place that shaped my personality and my approach towards corporate life. I was extremely lucky to have the writers of Export Policy of India as my professors. These fortunate memories will stay with me forever.”

 What advice would you offer to students who take #NoHypeMBA at FIIB?

“For International Business ‘Sky’s The Limit’. Indian economy is slowly turning into an export hub. With ‘Make In India’, the Government Programme, India is and can further look forward to several opportunities in International Business. Learning International Business in PG level, will provide you dividends throughout life, just as it has done to mine. Learning International Business at PG level will provide dividends throughout life. One can get into the aviation industry, can become an entrepreneur and can also be a successful entrepreneur. I would say that there is no better specialization than International Business.
