One is full of lot of hopes and aspirations before joining an MBA. There are certain things you expect to learn and certain ways you expect you’ll change. Over the course of my time at REVA University, I’ve not only learned how to manage business but more so how to manage life.
Setting Career Goals and Finding Right Balance in Life
When I think about my professional journey, I realize that success depends a lot on choosing the right career goals and finding balance in life. As a result of my experience at REVA University, I have become more confident to set the right career trajectory. The overall environment at REVA is most attuned to finding balance in one’s life. It has taught me to think about career goals as a process of personal growth rather than a destination. Life at REVA has empowered me to lead successfully in a highly competitive global career market.
Knowing Your Leadership Style and Raising Personal Benchmarks
Through the MBA program at REVA University I was exposed to challenging tasks and difficult situations that required very different leadership approaches. I began to think beyond the expected normal and stretched my limits in such scenarios. Through team activities I realized that irrespective of the style, leadership is people centric rather than based on individual preferences. This helped in fine tuning my approach to leadership and made it more relevant to the task in hand. A lot of deep understanding of business leadership came by discussing important cases during class interactions and business simulation exercises.
Cross-Cultural Learning Experience Through Student Clubs
REVA University offers myriad opportunities of cross cultural learning. Students at REVA University come from widely diverse backgrounds, interests and nationalities. A lot of out of the class learning happens through cross cultural interactions during group assignments and participation in various events organized by student driven clubs. By being engaged in variety of clubs, I was able to acquire necessary skills and knowledge required to adapt to different beliefs, attitudes and cultures vital for working in teams in a globalized business world. The University has a variety of clubs to engage and transform students with diverse skill sets. The clubs include: literary club, science clubs, sports club, robotics, eco club, quiz club, dance and drama club and a host of other clubs. Students are encouraged to participate in co-curricular activities such as literary, cultural and sports activities, intercollegiate, inter-University competitions. The resultant is REVAMP– a cultural fest organized every year that provides great opportunity to all students to exhibit their skills, talent and hobbies.
Combining Benefits of Sports with Management Education
At REVA, play fields are also class-rooms where one gets exposure to experiential learning. Sports help students compete, connect and win. The University believes in the paradigm that if you can manage on field, you can manage in business. This is demonstrated through various engaging sporting events that the University organizes from time to time. Also, taking part in sports at the University is a great way to keep fit, make friends and unwind after academic work. REVA has outdoor and indoor sports facilities including Gymnasium, Badminton, Table Tennis, Volley ball, Basket ball, Football and Cricket stadium. The multi-gym station helps students to stay fit and healthy for studies.
Networking Opportunity with Guest Speakers and Mentors
At REVA we get to interact with a lot of experts from industry and public service who are regularly invited by the University in every module to conduct classes and workshops. Normally such persons are from top management. This provides students an opportunity to extend their area of influence which eventually gives rich dividends at the time of placement. I have also seen that as a result of this on several occasions a few students have been picked by companies and invited to join even before completion of the course.
