Topper of (2015-2017) Batch
I am Mrigakshi Barman. I belong to the (2015-2017) batch of AIM PGDM Participants. I think taking admission at AIM was really a right decision on my part. AIM has not only provided me the base for acquiring the required professional skill but has also helped me in developing my personality. I believe that at the end of these two rigorous years of the Management Programme, I have became a better and well equipped person in this competitive world. To be the topper among the successful participants of my batch was really a big achievement in my life. For this, I really want to thank the Professors. From my experience, I found them very cooperative and helpful. In fact they have provided me the required guidance and support…

I am Bikash Deka. I belong to the (2015-2017) batch of AIM PGDM Participants. The days spent at AIM were one of the best days of my life. Coming from an engineering background it was really a challenging task for me to learn things which were completely new. But thanks to AIM for making things possible and quite comfortable. With the able guidance of the faculty and mentors, I successfully completed the whole journey of two years at AIM. From the first day itself when I got admitted, I tried to learn new things and also tried to change myself wherever my mentors advised me. I also express my gratitude to my friends who helped me and forwarded supported all throughout my journey at AIM. It is AIM who provided me the platform, to get the final placement at Safechem Industries which is one of India’s top companies. In fact my heartfelt thanks go to all my mentors and the family members of AIM for providing me the best platform and support to exploit my talent and finally get work opportunity…

I am Bandana Gogoi. My journey at AIM is quite memorable. The experiences were motivating and fruitful for my future as well. The course curriculum of AIM has a unique structure which makes it different from other management institutes in the region. From day one we had to busy ourselves with tasks on different managerial case studies, assignments, presentations, projects and the like. These basically gave an impetus for garnering practical knowledge of the corporate world. Besides the conventional management papers, the Written Analysis and Communication (WAC) along with the Executive Effectiveness (EE) paper contributed a lot on the grooming part of the students. Under EE paper we were assigned to arrange seminars, conduct book reviews and engage in social activities. These ultimately helped us to develop the leadership qualities and make us socially responsible. The two important Industrial visits namely the trip to Numaligarh Refinery (NRL) and Tata Iron and Steel Company (TISCO), Jamshedpur and an Institutional visit to National Institute of Rural Development (NIRD) really added value to my learning experience. If I have to comment about AIM, I would definitely speak about the faculty members. I found the members quite experienced whether it is in academics or in the industrial front. In fact they are the real assets of the Institute. During the last part of my journey, a lot of companies which were both of National and Multi National stature visited the Institute for campus placements of the students. My management education ended with my final placement at ICICI Bank. It was one of the greatest moments of my life and I had a sense of accomplishment. I am positive that the experiences that I have gained at AIM will help me enormously and inspire me to excel in my future career and life as well…

I am Samar Jyoti Kalita. I was a part of the AIM family and a proud student of AIM PGDM batch (2015-17). For me ‘experience is not what happens to you; it’s what you do with what happens to you’. To begin with, I acknowledge that a supporting and guiding faculty and a batch of friendly seniors were the ones who greeted my way to the AIM family. Here learning by regular presentations, constant evaluations, seminars, social activity and many other alternatives tests helped a lot to refine my skill sets. The boost to my confidence level, honing of various abilities, grooming my personality and an insights into the real world of management are some of the aspects that have made my time in AIM enriching and worthwhile. Within the campus and with the family of AIM, the most enjoyable events that made AIM stand out are its celebration of the freshmen’s social and the AIM Quest. In such programs, the hustle in the decorations, the rush for proper time management, organising the programs, stage rehearsals and executing minute things at the nick of time enabled me to garner a lot of experience. Among the Industrial visits, the visits to Jamshedpur (TATA STEEL and MODI CENTRE OF EXCELLENCE) and Digha were the most fun part of being part of AIM.
From the freshmen’s Social to the Convocation, the only thing that remained constant was the support of the beloved Faculty of AIM and their constant trust and believe that I can be better at every stage of my life. And yet I must admit that these are aspects that brought the better out of me. Attached to these events were a lot of unforgettable memories and tons of learning experience that can never be parted with. These experiences are truly irreplaceable and I would not trade them for anything in the world. And I feel that these experiences will definitely help me realise a successful and a rewarding career in my life.

I am Syeda Parveen. I can still vividly remember my first day at AIM. The 29th of June 2015 was the inaugural function of the 22nd Batch of PGDM of which I was one among 69 other participants. The journey started with curious minds and radiant faces, all ready to take on the ‘Management Shield’ and acquire the skills and learning to lead a life of value. We promised that day that we shall be truthful and strive for a good character.
At AIM we are being constantly reminded of ”Prayoge Safala Vidya” that learning comes to be fruitful only when put to its application. The two years at AIM was a journey of discovering me and implementing discipline in everyday life. Right from pre scheduled classes, regular assignments, presentations, end term examinations to summer internship project, grand project, placement classes made us burn the mid night oil. Also events like annual sports, cultural night, educational tours and recruitment exercises made us go through sleepless nights. Classes like Library Reading, Executive Effectiveness; Yoga not only widened our intellectual and managerial spectrum but also developed our physical and spiritual system too. Saturdays were considered ‘Monday blues’ because of the ‘formal cum ethnic’ wear day and a change from our casuals to formals made us feel uneasy. However looking back, I realized that these were some of the little challenges that helped us take on the corporate world. Also one cannot deny that it was one such day that we had taken the most number of selfies.
I thank my friends, faculty members (who are more like friends), staff, seniors, juniors and everyone of AIM family for giving such memorable moments. These memories shall remain evergreen. I hope AIM continues to transform the lives of the youth and bring good changes in the society and nation at whole. I wish the AIM family success in all its endeavors….

I am Nilutpal Das. I belong to the (2015-2017) batch of AIM PGDM Participants. My experience at AIM was wonderful. This journey of two years taught me a lot and also helped me to develop my personality. The various aspects of the AIM course curriculum like seminars, presentations and group discussion has taught me a lot and help me to understand the real practical world. The faculty members of AIM are the best, who provided the real guidance. In these two years apart from academics, many extracurricular activities were conducted which help in relaxation and also brought together everyone as a team. Lastly, I would like to thank AIM for its campus placement, where top companies came and we got the opportunity to seat for them and get the final placements.

AIM is always close to my heart. I fortunately, have two tales to tell with the privilege of being both a student and a faculty there, the experiences whereof I shall always value in my life. AIM not just transforms but it kits one out for the larger life ahead imbibing the courage, confidence and conviction to venture for the new and the untrodden. Hard work, dedication and focus on our ambitions are the only antecedents of success. Short-term goals in life keep us motivated. But perceiving them as destinations can be misleading. Never miss an opportunity to explore. Try to look beyond your vision. Remember that SUCCESS makes us happy but FAILURE has the potential to make us happier; only after failure you would take the time to look around and introspect before treading ahead.

I am Bapan Das. I belonged to the AIM PGDM batch (2015-17). For me life at AIM was very hectic. From the very beginning, the AIM curriculum kept us busy with a tight academic schedule that included assignments, projects, case studies and presentations which made me feel that life at a B-school like AIM is not just about studying – it is about multi-tasking – sometimes productively and sometimes for fun. In whatever form it came, it made us smarter and faster in performing our tasks. After graduating from AIM, I cannot refrain myself from mentioning the value of the lectures of faculty, which were so helpful for the students to realize the worth of learning in the classes. These were supplemented by the guest faculty from corporate houses who imbibed in us the feeling of real world and many a times make the subjects quite interesting. Moreover the Written Analysis and Communication (WAC) and Executive Effectiveness (EE) paper contribute a lot on the grooming part of the students. Under EE paper we were assigned to arrange seminars, book reviews, social activity which helped to develop the leadership qualities and to be socially responsible.
AIM enriched our creative skills especially in the art of student-pulling events and working on its promotion. The two important industrial visits and an institutional visit also add value to the learning of the management education. After so many fun-cum-learning activities, I would like to talk about the tasks which put us in the life of a real manager. Along with our academic projects, we got to work on many live projects (apart from the summer internship). These projects took us through the real world challenges. Since theoretic knowledge is very much different from the real world cases, these live projects, along with case-studies, form the basis of our valuable knowledge enhancement. Also, by doing these projects in a particular functional area, we got to know our suitability in a particular job-role as well as the sector as a whole.
When I look back at my two years of AIM, I find that my real practical life actually started with AIM. The sense of “good placement” changed from talking in terms of packages and big brands to something you love doing. For me AIM is not just about making your life with a good placement, but it is about living a self fulfilling life too.

I am Bhagyashree Neog. I belong to the (2015-2017) batch of AIM PGDM Participants. If I have to share about AIM, I have many things to share. In brief, AIM spells much beyond a Management Institute. The PGDM program provided an opportunity as well as an environment for learning from excellent Faculty, Guest Lecturers and Industry Professionals with diverse background and experiences. The Faculty always encouraged and supported us in every step. Every activity in this college is student driven. My two years at AIM have been one of the best years of my life both in terms of acquiring knowledge and fun. I am positive that my experience from AIM will help me a lot to face the real world before me with more confidence and hope.
