Making the Most of Your MBA Experienceby Roma Arora Freelance Blogger at IILM
It’s important to make the most of your limited MBA experience and time spent in college. Although 2 years might seem like a long time, they go by in a flash. You are also expected to complete all assignments and reading research on-time, as well as contribute to local groups and volunteering work. This leaves little time to play around, as you really need to get the most from this experience. Since time is all we have, students must understand its value in the grand scheme of things.
Interacting with faculty and staff:
Often students only interact with other students, leaving little room to interact with professors and faculty members. This is an important first step as you need to consult with them, with regards to career paths, potential opportunities and next steps in your career. You can also talk with them about innovative fields within your area of interest. Since faculty members are invited to international conferences and events, they hold a lot of information that they are ready to share.
Participating in campus events:
This may seem like a frivolous activity but participating in college fests and events puts you in the center. It’s a no-pressure situation where you can promote your college or field on the national stage. You can also participate in various drives and events that are running all year round. These fests and events managers are constantly looking for volunteers to assist them as well. Some of the top MBA colleges in Delhi like IILM, have a regular stream of events that many students take part in.
Interacting more in the classroom:
It’s a once in a lifetime opportunity to have a whole classroom full of future leaders listen to your perspective on a case. That’s why students need to take advantage of this situation and create a positive impact on the students around them. Speaking in class, participating in open dialogues, asking multiple questions and engaging with other students are great ways to make the most of your MBA experience. Every top management institute in Delhi encourages its students to do so, as it is widely regarded as one of the first signs of an effective leader.
While many students procrastinate during the MBA experience, it’s important to not fall into that trap. You should put yourself out there and get the most from your experience. You should leave with a balanced resume and a mind filled with positive memories. It may be hard, at first, to relish the experience when you’re there, but when you’re in the moment you can appreciate all the ups and down with context.
