‘My daughter wants to pursue her MBA from Apeejay itself’

Mrs. Hemlata Tanwar, mother of first year Apeejay Stya University student Tanu Tawar, says the institute provides a positive environment to learn and develop holistically



Tanu Tanwar, a student of the School of Management Sciences, Apeejay Stya University (ASU), belongs to a family of farmers. After completing her schooling from Bansi Vidya Niketant, Faridabad, she joined the School of Management Sciences to pursue her BBA Honours in Human Resources (HR). The 18-year-old girl says, “I want to make my father proud by soaring to new heights in my career.” Tanu aspires to become an HR professional and work with a multinational company in the future. In a telephonic interview, Tanu’s mother, Mrs. Hemlata Tanwar, a homemaker, describes the reasons for choosing ASU for her daughter and more. Edited excerpts:

Why made you choose ASU for your daughter?

Mrs. Hemalata: Apeejay Stya University has a great reputation and it also offers good placements to its students. Secondly, the campus is very close to our home and that makes commuting convenient. Plus, Tanu’s brother, Nitin Tanwar, also studies at ASU. These were few driving factors for us to choose this university. 

Tanu: Apeejay has a very good placement record. Also, when I visited the campus, I found it to be very impressive. The university is full of greenery and it gives out a positive vibe.

The university has reopened the campus for offline classes. What is your perception about the offline classes?

Mrs. Hemlata: My daughter is very eager to attend her classes every day. 

Tanu: I love going to the university for offline classes. Online classes limit us from interacting with people directly. In-person classes are so much better –  they help us meet our friends and interact with faculty members. We are able to work on our assignments and projects so easily.

Please take us through Tanu’s progress at ASU?

Mrs. Hemlata: Her studies are going on fine. She has performed well and scored very good marks in her first semester exams. The institute provides a positive environment to learn and develop holistically. My daughter wants to pursue her MBA from Apeejay itself

Tanu: In my batch, all students are very talented and we help each other during  assignments and projects.  My communication skill has improved so much. I love Maths and I have learnt so many new and interesting techniques to solve mathematical problems.  

As you wish to build your career as an HR, how do you groom yourself for the same?

Tanu: In addition to what is taught in the class, I take different approaches to groom myself at home. For instance, I assign five to six tasks to myself when I am at home and then execute them. I also chalk a timeline for each activity and this helps me in enhancing my managerial skills. I also work on building my communication skills – one of the most important traits for an HR professional.
