IIM-A Attracts Students from Diverse Backgrounds

Ahmedabad: Indian Institute of Management-Ahmedabad (IIM-A), which is regarded as one of the country's best management schools, continues to attract students from diverse backgrounds. While doctors and engineers have all most become common at IIM-A, the institute's latest batch of its flagship course Post-Graduate Programme in Management (PGP) has a scientist also, amongst them.

As per sources, after working for three years as a scientist under the Prime Minister's Office, 26-year-old Rajesh Kumar left his job to study at IIM-A. Kumar said that to do an MBA was his dream since college days. He said that many of his classmates got into different IIMs in the country after completing engineering, he said but, for him, there were other issues that needed to be attended first.

Moreover, while his first year at IIM-A is reaching completion, Kumar is now looking forward to his upcoming summer internship with Tata Consultancy Services to decide on his next step. Kumar has also said that with the hands-on experience, he will get a better idea about his strengths and weaknesses. Then he will decide where to focus and what to do after the MBA.
