My Experience At LBSIM – Surabhi

I’m Surabhi,student of the current batch 2014-16 from LBSIM. To give you a glimpse of my background, I’ve graduated from NMIMS, Mumbai with BBA and post that have a work experience with a marketing company as a client servicing professional.

My journey for LBSIM started, when i had to take the tough decision of choosing the right B-school for myself.. While I was  anxious about B-school choices, but I  was lucky to have a few seniors help me on figuring out my b-school. The first thing in mind was ROI, as I felt that I did not want to burden myself with an education loan for the rest of my life, LBSIM ranks on the lower fees amongst the colleges of the same league with respect to fees from other b-schools. If I look at the overall exposure and experience one must receive in a B-school, I believe I have gauged more from the opportunities around than students from even the best of b-school, right from grooming my personality by participating in Debating in top b-school competition to Dramatics, to building my managerial skills by organizing various events at intra and inter college level. I got a great corporate experience by working simultaneously on Live projects and aligning my review on which stream I want to pursue and get into. Talking about my internship I was placed with RPG group’s ITES company First source, on my way to further learn and pursue my dream.

Having studied in b-schools during my graduation and now post graduation, my biggest learning is there are various opportunities around, it’s how you make the best of them to build your personality. LBSIM gives you immense opportunities to work towards the same through its extra curricular activities, management events, live projects and various conferences held in the institute. It’s on you to Grab the right opportunity and make the best out of them.

Thus, while, it is  important for one to prepare our mind frame that are we really ready for the drastic change of lifestyle and in turn the rigorous competition in the corporate world, it’s that step of entering a Bschool!
