My Journey with the Professors at JAGSOM

We all love teachers who give us something more than the homework to take back home. That is the exact kind of Professors I had at JAGSOM.

I am Manoja, a final year Marketing student at JAGSOM. With an Engineering background and a few years of work ex after my graduation days, I was apprehensive and had doubts about how I’m gonna perform when I opted for PGDM Marketing. But I was jubilant with the line up of faculty we had at JAGSOM. They had rich Industry exposure and a wide amount of work experience. It all started with a very good foundation laid with a subject named Marketing Management where not an inch of whiteboard was left with the amount of case study reviews we had in every session. Every concept was brought through the case studies of Brands, Retail, Tech Giants of the world and it kindled our thought process in a refined way. My favorite subject of all was Brand Management which instilled a new vision in me, made me look into a Brand like a human, understand it and empathize with it.

At JAGSOM, it’s the process of learning which gets every student onboard. The kind of projects, presentations, assignments we do slowly molds us into a future Corporate who is ready to work on any problem in the industry collaboratively. From trying to provide a feasible solution to a live problem at “Design Thinking” to scripting a B2B pitch with big MNC’s, Creating a new brand and designing a campaign, and making an elevator IT Sales pitch, I did it all in here.

Finally speaking of Career Guidance and mentoring, our faculty never took a step back in guiding us in an industry-oriented way. They always took examples from their wide industry regime, spoke about how they overcame challenges and how we can take our beginner steps towards our Career Goals. So I am very grateful for every lesson and every suggestion given by my Professors. I’m also sure this would help in each step of my further career for a long long time.
