I can best introduce myself as a PGDM (2020-2022) batch aspirant who dreamt of donning the MBA degree in business suit, instead, ended up staying home hit by pandemic. When I was preparing for the entrance exam, several people gifted me hope of how it would be to walk like a novice business management aspirant in the corridors of the B-school campus. Never did I know that all dreams would end in vain.
But I am grateful to the faculty and admission team of JIMS Rohini who made it easy for me to get into the routine and most importantly to settle in the environment of the B-school from the periphery of my home.
It all began when I received a message from the institute “You have been shortlisted for the PGDM Program in JIMS Rohini Sector-5”. My happiness knew no bounds as it was the first college when where I received the news of getting shortlisted to my MBA dream.
I immediately shared the news with my parents; however they got worried about the admission process due to the prevailing pandemic situation in the country that restricted us from visiting the campus. I called at the JIMS Rohini admission helpline number and they assured me that the “Pre-Induction Module” will take place online in which we will be given complete orientation about the college and the course.
The fee submission process was done online through and I submitted all my academic proofs by uploading the soft copy at the JIMS Admission portal.
I received all the details on the e-mail pertaining to the MBA program for which I enrolled in the PGDM (2020-2022) batch. Owing to the vicinity of the college and its super-fast connectivity to the Delhi metro, I decided to join the institute because my expectations were high that once the pandemic will be over, I will get a chance to visit my college.
The pre-induction module went around for 3-4 days. We were introduced to the expert faculty members who inducted us with the practices followed in the PGDM program. Some of the bright alumni interacted with us to give us a bird’s eye view of our future after MBA and during the course at the campus. Management games were being organised on the 3rd day that helped us build familiarity with the fellow batchmates.
In addition to these exercises, we have been provided the access to the unique JIMS Learning Management System (LMS) that allowed us to attend lectures, apply for attendance, submit assignments, and take the assessments after the completion of the semester.
The web team of JIMS Rohini is highly cooperative and patient with the students and is readily available for help 24×7.
My heart is filled with gratitude towards the faculty members who made our transition to the online classes’ fun and intellectually enriching. Taking admission in the PGDM course of JIMS Rohini was the best decision of my life.
