The student talks about how the MBA institute shaped her into an all-round



Simran Sokhi, who pursued an MBA in Finance & Marketing at Apeejay Institute of Management & Engineering Technical Campus (AIMETC), Jalandhar, bagged a placement at Education Culture as an academic writer. In an interview, she tells us how the curriculum at AIMETC had a positive impact on her personality and honed her skills.

What got you interested in Marketing and why did you choose Apeejay to pursue it?

I decided to pursue Marketing because of the numerous career opportunities in the field. It is something that can never go out of trend; it was the need of the past, and present, and will be the need of the future. The reason I chose AIMETC was its excellent placement record. It is deemed one of the top Business schools in Punjab.

What was your overall experience at AIMETC like?

Studying at AIMETC was enriching as the professors tried their level best to help students understand concepts through engaging lectures, presentations, and workshops. We attended many seminars, webinars, and guest lectures, which helped us enhance our knowledge even more. Apart from academics, I had a great experience participating in various sports activities like cricket, volleyball, badminton, and so on. I was a part of the institute’s annual event ‘Pinnacle’ and also participated in folk dance competitions, fashion shows, and music events. Overall, my time at AIMETC was memorable.

How did these experiences impact your personality? What skills did you develop?

I used to be very shy before joining Apeejay. The encouragement and motivation I got from my professors and peers boosted my confidence and helped me overcome stage fear. My communication skills and interpersonal skills also improved in the process. Through participation in various co-curricular activities, I picked up leadership skills, learnt how to manage events and coordinate with team members.
