‘Don’t take your IT classes for granted’

Apeejay School of Management alumnus Gitanshi Aggarwal advises students to trust in the teachers and learn from them with a sincere mind



Gitanshi Aggarwal is the Business Developer Executive at Xero Degrees Cafe Pvt Ltd. She is an alumnus of Apeejay School of Management, Dwarka (batch of 2022), who pursued her Post Graduate Diploma in Management.

In an informal interview, the modern-age business developer regales how her friends from the online classes at ASM have become lifetime friends now . Edited excerpts:

What does a day at the office look like?

My day at the office has been good so far. I have a lot of work to submit today though. Generally there is a lot of deadline pressure. But as a business developer, I love what I do and I learn something new every day. 

What inspired you to join this field?

My inspiration was the company itself. The co-founder of the company guided me through everything and made me believe that I am the right fit for the role and I trusted in him. Guess what, he was right!

Tell us about your best memories from ASM days?

 I am from the COVID batch! (laughs). The best memory I have is when the college re-opened, and finally I got to see the friends I had made during the online classes. They have now become my lifetime now. 

One word of advice for the current ASM students?

Please get serious if you are not and don’t take the IT classes for granted. Listen to your mentor’s advice because they alone can guide you through the process. Trust them and learn from them.

Your future targets?

 To be the best version of myself and make the most out of my skills.
