Gargi Roy ( ISBR Alumnus) – Presently with TATA Group

“My name is Gargi Roy, I saw lot of colleges when I was choosing for my higher studies i. e MBA, but I felt that this college will give me a higher exposure towards industry. Once I came here, I got to know I have made a right choice. I made lots of friends, I met wonderful faculty…. And of course I did made to TATA Family…. because of ISBR. I am working with them now and ISBR has given me lots of exposure that I was able to break through Tata Interview. The faculty are wonderful, they are very loving and apart from their knowledge, they share their personal experiences to fill the gap between practiceand theory. They are wonderful and they have become a lifelong friend. We love our library. I would say it has out of syllabus books also. I would give you one example called “The Argumentative Indian” by Amartya Sen, that one book still remains in my memory. I would say the library has added a lot of value. I had been shot listed to go IIM, Bangalore, for a dance event for the ICRA consortium (the brick consortium), again that was opportunity provided by ISBR. That would be my biggest achievement of the memory of the life time. I am working with TATA as Branch trainer; I train on process and product. ISBR would be a stepping stone for anything that would be ahead in life.”

On 15th November a group of around 20 students from PGDM 1st semester, visited Software Technology Parks of India located in Electronic city, Bangalore. The students geared themselves up for the industry visit and left for STPI( Software Technology parks Of India) at around 10:30 am.

Excitement rushed in the veins as soon they reached there and were completely amazed to look at their huge and wonderful infrastructure. A senior official from the STPI gave students a warm welcome and took them inside their control room where they briefed about their company and how it functions. They explained each and every detail about their company with proper visual aids. The control room contained several servers and critical technical setups.

Students asked several questions which were effectively and patiently answered by them. The STPI is a government company which provides required infrastructure and technical backup to the startup companies. The startups approach the STPI with their proper project and plans and in return they help the budding entrepreneurs by letting them operate from the STPI by simply installing their server there. This encouraged the students who have plans of becoming entrepreneurs in the future.

It was quite an interactive session between the students of ISBR and  the officials of STPI whereby the students got to enhance their knowledge. The students clicked the photos with the employees of STPI and later they were also served refreshments which they enjoyed. Over all the visit proved quite beneficial for the students and specially for the future entrepreneurs of ISBR.

Green Diwali Campaign at ISBR

 

Diwali is the festival of lights, new hopes and prosperity. ISBR celebrated the day in a different way than usual. When everybody was busy bursting crackers and disturbing the ecosystem, we decided to opt for a green Diwali and make a small contribution towards less pollution and less noisy environment. Our faculty and students shared their views on the concept- ‘Green Diwali’.

 They poured their heart out on the white board kept at the amphitheater for this purpose. They showcased their writing talents and expressed the thoughts on how they can glow the world around by the light of knowledge and wisdom and not by crackers. Few of the messages worth share are: 

  • Go Green to Breathe clean.
  • Let this Diwali burn all your bad times and enter into good times.
  • This Diwali only Diyas, No firecrackers.
  • Smile is loud and attractive than crackers, lets cherish only smiles and happiness this Diwali.
  • Take a pledge to celebrate this Diwali , A Green Diwali.
  • This Diwali burn your greed and self indulgence, not crackers. Celebrate Eco Friendly Diwali & Spread Happiness.

 Our Senior Director, Dr K S Anandram, in his video message emphasised on the need to maintain the balance of eco system and celebrate Green Diwali this time.
