‘Despite being so far away from the college, my son feels well-connected’

Mrs. Sudipa Chowdhury mother of Aditya Chowdhury, a first year BBA Marketing student at the School of Management Sciences, reveals her reasons for choosing ASU for her son



Mrs. Sudipa Chowdhury works as an accountant with Webcon Consulting India Ltd. She is the mother of Aditya Chowdhury, BBA Marketing first year student at School of Management Sciences, Apeejay Stya University (ASU). In an exclusive interview, she shares her reasons for choosing the campus, her son’s progress and her perceptions about the online classes. Edited excerpts:

Why did you choose ASU over other universities for your child’s admission?

I chose ASU because the BBA Marketing course is rarely available in any good college here in Kolkata. So, I went ahead with the best college I found for BBA Marketing. Also, my financial condition is not very sound. I alone take care of Aditya. So, I wish that my son gets a good job at the end of his course here at ASU.

Please tell us a bit about your child and take us through his progress at ASU?

Aditya loves to play cricket. He is an all-rounder but he loves batting more (laughs). He loves to read all kinds of news. He is very knowledgeable in this field.  He also has a desire to go in the media line. But as of now, he has a lot of ambition to secure his future after getting a good placement and thereby build a financially stable future to improve our condition. He is performing well in the college. His teachers, especially the Dean, are very helpful in nature.  His first semester exams are going on these days. He is studying for that at present.

Are the teachers engaging well with the students?

 The teachers are teaching very well. They put a lot of efforts into what they are teaching. The teachers at ASU are far better than his schoolteachers were at Kolkata. The way they teach through various pdfs is reallly innovative. They even have a lot of knowledge outside the realm of books. They are preparing him so well that he doesn’t need the services of a private tutor. I am very happy about that.

Aditya praises Professor Sunil Roy a lot. He tells me that Prof Roy teaches in a very informative and friendly manner. Also, I would like to mention Mr. Vivek in the non-teaching staff at School of Management Sciences, ASU. He is very helpful.

What is the best thing about the School of Management Sciences, ASU?

The best thing is that Aditya is very eager to attend his classes every day. The sole credit for that goes to the School of Management Sciences, ASU. Earlier in his school days, he wasn’t so determined about academics. But now, I don’t have to force him to study anymore.  He himself takes care of his studies.

What is your perception about the online classes?

This is the need of the hour in the pandemic situation. ASU is organising the classes very well. Aditya, despite being at Kolkata, so far away from his college at Gurgaon, feels well-connected despite not having been to college even once. That speaks a lot.
