A JOURNEY OF A THOUSAND MILES…. MY FIRST YEAR AT BIMTECH
PGDM, Batch 2021-23
“The moment you doubt whether you can fly, you cease forever to be able to do it.” —Peter Pan by J M Barrie.
As I complete one year at BIMTECH, I can confidently say that this institution has taught me how to fly. This entire year has been an incredible journey of self-discovery, career development, and personal growth. From being a fresher with no clue of corporate life, BIMTECH has taught me to successfully navigate the professional world; while maintaining a holistic approach.
To know your true potential, always test your limits. Life at BIMTECH has tested my capabilities and imparted essential life skills. My first year was a whirlwind of assignments, projects and activities. Being from an engineering background, this was unfamiliar waters. Juggling the numerous deadlines, rigorous course structure, and multiple extracurricular activities was a great lesson in time management. Being a part of the prestigious Cultural Conduit provided a platform to express my creativity and get practical exposure to management through organizing multiple events. Each day offered many challenges, keeping me on my toes and providing a million new learnings.
Moving to the other side of the country, from Palakkad in Kerala to Noida, exposed me to a wide range of cultures. The community at BIMTECH represented a perfect blend of societies and customs from across the country. They provided opportunities to listen to varied perspectives that helped to widen my knowledge and perceptions about life itself. Friends from all over India have made hostel life a lot more fun, with each corner of the corridors echoing with voices in different languages. Group projects, late-night studies, and celebrating festivals from all parts of the country have helped connect students and forge several close friendships—these interactions made for good times and memories that will remain forever.
So yes, a PGDM degree at BIMTECH can be challenging and sometimes stressful, but once the storm passes, you realize how strong you have become and how much better you are for it. Enjoy the learnings that come with this incredible journey and give wings to your dreams.
