  12. 12. TRANSFORMATIONS A FEW THOUGHTS Apeksh Sharma (JIMJ 2009-11), Coca Cola Firstly, it was the infrastructure which took me to the door of Jaipuria Institute of Management, Jaipur and I took the admission here, before this I had no idea what the system is going to deliver me, how the faculty would be and definitely I did not know about the crowd. After getting into the Campus I realized that the Faculty are familial and co-operative that I never felt I was in college, extra- curricular activities changed my total personality, I become a confident individual, I became polished. What I was and what I am today - a drastic change in my personality which was possible just because of the Jaipuria Institute of Management. The best part - people often say that after your School life you will never get true and real friends, I proved them wrong, I got the best buddies here and together we form PRAN. (Prakash. Rajiv, Ashish & Naina) Rajiv Bumb (JIMJ 2011-13), Investor’s Clinic Sanchit Agrawal in Punjab National Bank (JIMJ 2012-14), Summer Internship “It’s been a year in Jaipuria Jaipur and I shall say that this place has replaced my actual home. May it be studying throughout the day, organizing events, representing the institute at various levels, spending time with friends, late night hostel life or any other activity within or apart from the schedule, this place has changed me positively. I now feel more confident, enthusiastic and focused. Every individual of this organization seems committed, loyal and devoted to their respective duty which reflects a sense of ownership. All these create an environment for growth and motivate every student to give his fullest. ” Sixth Annual Convocation11 PGDM is one of the preferred courses for learning theories of management.
