Q. Can you tell us something about yourself and your pre-MBA qualifications and work-experience?
Ans. I did my graduation from NIFT Delhi with a specialization in Apparel Manufacturing. As far as my industry stints are concerned, I have done a couple of projects with Maral Overseas, and a project each with Pantaloons & Arvind Mills. Through these projects in diverse profiles, I had made an attempt to understand the functioning of different domains of the Apparel Supply Chain. Prior to NIFT, I did my schooling from DPS Bokaro, a school which I consider instrumental in framing my personality.
Q. So when did you decide to go for MBA?(At what stage in your life you decided to go for MBA and what prompted the decision?)
Ans. I decided for an MBA to augment my learning during my graduation. This decision was prompted by the need for gaining "Decision making capabilities" to supplement my existing technical expertise in my domain.
Q. Will an MBA degree add on to your existing career plan or did you decide to switch/start a career in management?
Ans. My basic intent and expectation with an MBA degree was an understanding of all the management disciplines with a focus on one discipline. And SJMSOM, with its varied electives and courses gives me plenty of freedom and opportunities to explore all the disciplines before taking an informed decision. As of now, I am still in the stage of understanding the management domains so commenting on my future career path would be a little premature.
Q. Which MBA Institutes and Programmes you identified for your MBA? (List all those MBA colleges and courses you applied for.)
Ans. Since the inception of my MBA dream, I was very specific as to what collages should I apply to. In this regard, I applied to all the IIMs, XLRI (BM), SJMSOM, FMS, IIFT, MDI & DMS-IITD. Based on the final converts and the available options, I made an informed decision and joined SJMSOM, IIT Bombay.
Q. Your present B-school and programme. Also specify your Batch.
Ans. B-School: SJMSOM, IIT Bombay, Programme: Master of Management (Class of 2011)
