From classroom to boardroom – A FLAME student’s journey

From being an ambitious student to an
employee at one of the most renowned finance companies in the UAE, it is fair
to say that my life has transitioned splendidly after acquiring a PGDM in communication
from FLAME.

Blending creativity and a multi-dimensional
perspective with important strategies is something that is not taught in most
of the b-schools. However, I was lucky to learn and acquire these skills at
FLAME School of Communication. It provided the perfect environment that
encouraged me to explore new ideas in content and form, and to experiment and
re-examine ideas on an ongoing basis.

The course aptly honed my academic and
professional goals by helping me learn the important aspects of communication
and management not just in the environment of a classroom but a corporate
boardroom as well. It was an eye-opener as we not only learned new concepts but
also learned to introspect its importance. Every time I confidently step into
an actual conference room for one of those crucial team meetings, I realize the
value of what I had been taught in college.

Theoretical knowledge can be acquired
easily but practical techniques are more important and that’s something that I
have gained in abundance through my 2-year long journey at FLAME. The
experienced faculty members were nothing less than mentors who helped me grasp
different scenarios in the business world and multiple tactics to handle it.

After completing the program, I was
delighted to be placed at Duniya Finance (LLC) Dubai, through FLAME’s placement
cell. This job perfectly suited my management skills and also gave me a chance
to take my career to the next level by shifting to a country that’s emerging as
one of the top business destinations in the world-Dubai. I was also one of the
few lucky people to receive the highest pay package from my batch. I consider
this to be just the beginning of my professional journey. I’m game to strive
for many more milestones that will make me stand out with my unique educational
prowess gained at FLAME.

Today I am confident about my area of
expertise despite the dynamic business conditions that prevail in the industry
due to the holistic perspective that this institute has instilled within me. It
made me understand how important the college environment is to sculpt your
personality. I’d like to thank my faculty for everything they have taught and
shared. I owe it to you!
