I was born in Lucknow and spent
my childhood there. I did my schooling at
City Montessori School. I consider my parents as my role models and they have
brought me up under excellent morals and values. The most important lesson I
derived from my family is to realize the great value of education and I have
been an eager learner ever since childhood. Having studied in the world’s
biggest school in terms of the number of
students studying, I have interacted with a diverse set of people. My transition and efforts at school can be captured in
the awards my mother won. From being a ‘Mother Great’ then ‘Mother Magnificent’
to the highest position of ‘Mother Queen’, the awards were given as I
progressed from being ranked 10th in Class II to 1st in
Class in the IX Standard and with multiple medals in X and XII Standard. The
pride and glow in my mother’s eyes made me even more diligent.

Apart from studies, I also enjoyed taking part in debates, essay writing
and poster making competitions. I was a member of office bearers club in my
school and was chosen as the proctor of the school. I organized various
competitions at intra branch level of my
school.

After my high
school degree, I joined Vellore Institute of Technology, one of the best
private colleges in the country. During my graduation,
I have had a good deal of industrial experience in the form of summer training at HP where I learned about Embedded
and robotics technology and at NTPC where I learned about communication
systems, modulation techniques, and VSAT
communication.

During my
college days, I developed a passion for table tennis. After practicing a lot, I gradually
improved my skills and started feeling a lot more confident about my game. I
started playing at intra college level. I played a doubles tournament which was
held in my office in 2016 and won the first runner-up
prize.

After
completing my B.Tech, I joined SapientRazorfish and have been working here for
the past two and a half years. While working for one of the retail clients, I got the chance to
understand how the activities of different departments are intricately
interwoven, how inventory management is linked to procurement planning and in
turn to sales forecasting, how to enhance the overall effectiveness of the
organization by making information available in real time which prompts
decision making at different levels of management. This experience has aroused
my interest in areas such as sales and marketing, financial management and
human resource management of which I knew very little.

I now want to acquire holistic knowledge of all the disciplines
of management and how they are seamlessly integrated into the functioning of an organization. I believe that an MBA
course will acquaint me with different sectors of the business world and expose
me to real business problems in different sectors through case studies, project
work, and interaction with the industry.
The guidance of the learned and experienced faculty and the interaction with
peers from different educational and professional backgrounds would indeed
provide a great learning experience and extend my horizons.

My choice to pursue a career in
management from the Indian Institute of Management (IIMB) stems from the
potential of this course to teach me about the emerging business environment
and also the varying opportunities available to a graduate of IIMB. It is this
quality education that I am interested in and which prompts me to pursue a
course in management.
