Experience is never limited, and it is never complete; it is an immense sensibility, a kind of huge spider-web of the finest silken threads suspended in the chamber of consciousness, and catching every air-borne particle in its tissue.

‘Anveshan 2010’ – learning through experience has been a regular feature at SIMSR for the past several years. Anveshan is an interactive session between select alumnus of 2008-10 batch and the current batch of 2010-12 where the young post graduate students learn from the knowledge and experience of the last passing batch. Given the changing times and the dynamic requirements of the industry, there is a lot the students stand to gain from the valuable inputs and suggestions regarding internships, specializations, profile offered and the corresponding industry requirements.
On Saturday, 4th September 2010, the students were in for a treat with the alumnus/alumna from 2008-10 batch coming over to college for a casual informational session for the first year PG students. The primary objective was to address queries and concerns regarding internships, final placement offers and above all, their experience at SIMSR.
For students, who were confused over their specializations, doubtful over their summer interns and pensive about their academic performance, this was just what the doctor ordered – mentoring. The alumni were more than pleased to answer questions ranging from academic to life after an MBA. After 2 hours of interesting, informational and interactive session, the first year students appeared to be clearer in their thoughts, and firm on their choices.
Overall, Anveshan 2010 was a successful attempt towards bridging the industry and education divide, and empowering the fresh batch of students with better choices and realistic opinions for the life ahead, all owing to the warm bonds between the alumni and the college.
Share a happy memory. Also share the difficult times that have helped you become stronger and wiser. When shared, the value of these experiences multiplies.
