My relationship with KSOM (KIIT School of Management) began back in 2021 when I enrolled in the course of the MBA program, provided by KSOM. Before joining the MBA course, I had certain expectations from KSOM, and I am glad to say that every expectation of mine has stood corrected. KIIT School of Management has provided many opportunities for me that helped me groom myself to survive in the corporate world. The faculty of KSOM will provide you with a plethora of knowledge about the respective management subjects that will help you build an excellent career in the corporate field you want. Also, the most highlighted feature of KSOM is its infrastructure. The world-class infrastructure nurtured by the KIIT School of Management will give you another perfect reason to choose this college to pursue your management studies. I am always mesmerized by the aesthetic beauty of the campus. KSOM campus also hosts many vibrant conclaves like marketing and analytics that help me gain in-depth knowledge about my domain. KSOM has a mentor-mentee system in which one will be guided by a faculty member so that they would not face any kind of difficulty while pursuing the management course. Due to this system, I met Prof. Joydeep Biswas, whom I can't thank enough. His teachings and guidance have played a very important role in my career. I would like to extend my gratitude to Prof. Sugato Tripathy, who has given me much-needed insights concerning my management specialization. I would also like to convey my sincere gratitude to Prof. Bhuwandeep Singh, who made me fall in love with the subjects I perceived as somewhat complicated. Finally, I pay my much-obligated thanks to the placement department for their hard work in offering me the chance to participate in the placement process. I have been a witness to the quality work they perform to fulfill the dreams of the students. I sincerely thank Dr. Kumar Mohanty and Mr. Amit Jenamani for that. The college has left such a positive imprint in my life that I can't describe it in words. One has to experience it to know its effect. I have made many decisions, but my decision to enroll in KSOM to pursue a management course is by far the best one. Thanks for giving me a treasure of memories. I will cherish them forever.
KSOM has played a huge role in shaping me into who I'm today. My faculties play a huge role in my life. Whether online or offline, they have helped me in whatever way they could. As they are the bridge between us and the corporate world, they have always demonstrated examples and shared experiences of the corporate. I constantly look up to them for their guidance and help. Above all, the mentor-mentee relationship that we have here has benefited each student, particularly me. I remember sharing my goal of joining Deloitte with my mentor, Prof Manoj, on our first mentor-mentee meet, and from that day, he has guided me not just to get me through my SIP and then the PPO phase but also beyond that. There are a lot many things related to finance that I'm still learning from him. He is a constant source of help and motivation. Also, talking about konclaves, way before we sit for placements and SIPs, we are exposed to corporate through various konclaves held throughout the year. I grabbed a lot of opportunities during these konclaves and asked all my doubts from today's leaders. I would like to thank KSOM and my faculties for their help.
The first time I heard about KIIT was many years back when my cousins had enrolled themselves here for various courses, and since then, hearing their stories about the KIIT life excited me to come here. The infrastructure, placements, and quality of the faculty are known to all, and these factors motivated me to enroll in the MBA program at KIIT School of Management (KSOM). Firstly, the campus environment is superb- the faculty, the administrative staff, and the guards, everyone is very helpful and ensures no student faces any difficulty on campus. The Mentorship program helped me clear doubts, ask for help with projects, and get a guardian figure, which is a hard thing because I am out of my city for the first time. My mentor is available on Whatsapp or by call and has guided me since joining, giving me confidence even when I had almost given up and ensuring their support in every problem until now. The various National Konclaves at KSOM is an eyeopener for all the students because the insights from the various guest speakers tell us about the industry requirements and motivate us to improve ourselves. Oh! And how can I not mention our Training and Placement Departments' Amit sir and Qaish Sir, who have been beside us all the time, be it confusion regarding placements or needing help with interview preparations. Thanks to them along with all the other professors who have been our guiding angels from the beginning of the course. The mock group discussions and online aptitude tests have contributed significantly and helped me bag the Day Zero placement at Deloitte for the role of Tax Consultant. And I would also like to thank Joydeep Sir because he took my admission interview and granted me the chance to be a part of this institute of excellence. I would also like to thank the college for allowing us to complete certificate courses from Harvard Business School, which would be very beneficial for our future careers. The college has developed and built not only my career but also me as an individual. The inclusivity amongst all on the campus, along with various events and almost all the festivals getting celebrated here with the same level of dedication, is one main factor I feel has made me miss home a little less. I can proudly say that my decision of getting enrolled into KSOM was the correct one, and I am proud to be a lovable KIITIAN. Thank you for all the memories, friends, and connections I have made here at KSOM.

My relationship with KIIT began in 2015, seven years ago, when I chose to enroll in the Mechanical Engineering B. Tech program at KIIT University. I have many wonderful memories from this college, but what drew me in was the setting and the environment. I was astounded by KIIT's facilities and attractive setting. My desire to enroll in the MBA program at KIIT School of Management was perhaps sparked by the caliber of the instructors and the culture at KSOM. The culture of KIIT attracted me more and more to pursue MBA even after having work experience. My classes at KSOM started during 2nd wave of the Covid-19 pandemic. So, the first half of the MBA program was online. Due to the way every course was designed, I could learn various subjects at once, even when taking them online. Every professor went above and beyond to assist students, even while enrolled in classes online. The placement-related classes were crucial. I would like to mention the mentor-mentee system in KSOM, which makes KSOM different from any other B-School. The corporate Mentorship Program, Konfidant, helped me clarify my doubt regarding the actual 5tindustry's functioning. It allowed me to interact with an industry professional, and he inculcated within me real industry experiences. The conclaves of Finance, Marketing, HR, and Analytics allowed me to interact with speakers from different industries. The committed Training and Placement department at KSOM works incredibly hard to meet the unique needs of each student. The mock group discussions, personal interviews, and the test series contributed to helping me bag an offer from Draup Business Solutions Private Limited for Consulting profile. The college has shaped me and contributed to building my personality as per the industry's requirements. I can proudly say that my decision to enroll in KSOM was correct. Thank you for all the memories.

Pursuing MBA from KSOM, KIIT turned out to be one of the best decisions of my life. I, Aishwarya Shanker Verma, am proudly placed at Verity Knowledge Solutions. The support, knowledge, and confidence I got from KSOM, along with personality and soft skill development, are innumerable. Pursuing MBA from KSOM was a decision I took after much consideration. Being a student who has a knack for finance, it is only obvious that my nature would dictate I take measured steps. I am astonished at how well the Professors at KSOM managed to teach us. While I was skeptical about how a college could manage to get the attention of all the students through the virtual platform, my doubts vanished after the first class. Ask me about Nash Equilibrium, and I could still tell you, not the bookish theoretical definition, but through a practical example. The entire process was so smooth that I could not believe I was already in my third semester. KSOM gave me two mentor-mentee relationships. My faculty Mentor, Prof. Mohar Banerjee Biswas, guided me and helped me understand how to proceed with the complicated yet needed MBA student life. My Corporate Mentor, Mr. Atul from Deloitte, did not just give me a glimpse of the corporate world and told me how to sustain myself in the Corporate World. It was an amazing journey, looking at the Corporate World from the eyes of a corporate Leader. This motivated me because I have a passion for such a life, and I want to be in a place where I can motivate others too. I am truly grateful to KSOM for this connection. KIIT opens a wide variety of opportunities. Faculties and staff at KSOM care about the students and are available around the clock to help them. They are genuinely passionate about the subjects they teach and strive to make their classes interesting and interactive and keep students engaged. Now that offline classes have commenced, I feel home away from home. Apart from the educational benefits, the hostel facilities and architecture are amazing. Professional events like Konfidant, Konclave, etc., gave our placement preparation an extra edge. From training us right from the first day to organizing a corporate mentorship program, KSOM left no stone unturned to prepare me for good placement. Due to these efforts now, I am placed in a reputed company.
TEENA ROSE TOM
We live in a world where many contradictions exist, where we love rain and yet hold an umbrella above our heads. KIIT School of Management was no different, but who said contradictions are bad? I learned here that enjoying time and having a productive time contradict each other, but these also make me understand the value of time. It also taught me how to manage time and increase utility. After all, when you have too many apples, the utility decreases, right? It is amazing how well KSOM professors have given me practical knowledge. Every step I take today is taken after evaluation because MBA is not just about management but also about growth and development. Today, I am proudly placed at Deloitte as a Tax Consultant, an opportunity that was given to me by KSOM. While I could announce my happiness through just one sentence, the back-end work has more to it. I am grateful for the different processes that KIIT has for its students, especially the mentor-mentee relationship, through which I enhanced my communication skills. My faculty mentor, Prof Saptorshi Das, has been a great help, and her innumerable mock PIs, which were tedious initially, inspired me. The Konfidant program is also something I am grateful for because it introduced me to a corporate Leader, Mr. Vibhor Sharma from Hike. He gave me the corporate view of things, where growth can get non-viable, but put in the right effort, and things will fall in place with the same satisfaction as when we put the last piece of the puzzle in its place. I would not want to be at any other place than KSOM. It taught me to take risks and enjoy taking risks. Sure, MBA teaches how to be in a corporate world, but KSOM also taught us how to bring in work-life balance. KSOM taught me that removing the umbrella and getting drenched in the rain is also a risk worth taking.
My classes were conducted in hybrid mode. The first two semesters were online, and the next two were offline. But never have I felt anything less in the entire course during my online classes. The placement training process started in the first semester. As a result, I could practice for the placements from the beginning of the course. My mentor Prof. Isa Mishra ma'am, guided me throughout, and all the other Professors were very helpful. The Konfidant program highlighted the real corporate world and shaped me to become a professional self in my career. We also had monthly Konclaves on different domains, which helped me learn about all the domains, including mine. My stepping stone to success was the Summer Internship Programme (SIP). Due to the rigorous training process in KSOM, I was able to crack my summer internship in my dream company, i.e., Deloitte USI (US India). The learnings I have gathered, and the corporate ethics I have learned in KSOM have immensely helped me in my internship. As a result, I also got a Pre Placement Offer (PPO) from Deloitte USI. I thank my mentor, professors, and classmates for believing in me and guiding me throughout. The two years spent in KSOM have created many memories to cherish. Thank you, KSOM, for making my MBA life memorable and fruitful.
My classes at KSOM started during the 2nd wave of Covid 19 pandemic. So, the first half of the MBA program was online. Even in the online mode, the way every course was structured, I learned multiple things simultaneously. Every professor was extremely helpful. Even in the online mode, they could manage to look after students who had doubts. The classes regarding placements were essential. I want to mention the mentor-mentee system in KSOM, which makes KSOM different from any other B-School. I am quite fortunate to be a mentee of Dr. Isa Mishra, who helped me whenever I asked for it. Then in July 2022, when I came to the campus, I was amazed by the environment and infrastructure in the campus. It is a different world altogether. The offline classes were even more interactive and exciting. My classmates in KSOM are very friendly and helpful. Nowadays, they are like my family. The mock group discussions, personal interviews, and the test series contributed to helping me become more confident as an individual and bag an offer from Deloitte U.S. India Office in my first interview. The college has contributed considerably to shaping me and building my personality. Life is all about making the right decisions at the right time, and I can proudly say joining KSOM was the right one at the right time. Thank you for everything.
The journey at KIIT School of Management has been quite an amazing one. KSOM has helped me evolve into the person I am today, - a well-organized, disciplined individual with a responsible attitude and a composed demeanor. I have completed 5 years in this beautiful campus. The best aspect of this journey was interacting with various people from all around the country. I think these are the things which helped me to spend 5 years of my life here and successfully complete my graduation and post-graduation with a dream job through campus placement. KSOM is different from other business schools because of its mentor mentee program which provides one-to-one guidance to students. The industry connection is quite strong and robust which provided me with a vibrant environment to groom myself for campus placement. I am thankful to my professors, administrators, and placement team for this memorable 5-year experience.
KIIT has been my Alma-mater for the crucial past year of my life. After doing my B-tech in KIIT, I joined KSOM in 2020 for my MBA course. Before, I heard that all the faculties at KSOM help any individual for a better future, but I experienced that in real life, which is commendable. I am glad that I chose KSOM again, and it stood beyond my expectation. I have got the best summer internship program before I could step into my Professional career at Deloitte. The experience I gained from KSOM, be it IMC, Konfidant, the special training session for placement, and all the individual mentoring sessions, has given me my dream job to start my career. I am thankful to my parents, faculties, and Alma-Mater for grooming me as an individual.

I was a little apprehensive when I joined KSOM two years back, but I was able to explore my areas of interest which turned out to be fruitful in due course of time. Amid a global pandemic, I got into Reliance mobility, a take-off into the corporate world, so my heartfelt gratitude to one of the reputed B schools.
KSOM – The institute that builds you, from raw material to packaged product." The journey with KIIT started back in 2020 (The start of the pandemic). As I was from Bhubaneswar, I used to listen a lot and see the success rate of KIIT, so I decided to opt for my Master's from KIIT. From the day of joining, the routine of my life changed from studies to academics to assignments to projects to group activities to club involvements; everything has a hand in building me up as a pillar to stand in the corporate world. I would thank KSOM for providing teachers who are more like a parent. The national conclaves, Seminars, Konfidant programs, and Mentoring sessions added value to student life. The environment here is so suitable (though it is in Online Mode for the 20-22 batch), which provides every opportunity to learn and the friends here give you support and competition. Moreover, I would thank my mentor Buddhaditya Padhi Sir who helped me through my entire journey, may it be during the time of my SIP or be in every other way possible. I thank the dedicated Training and Placement department, which works very hard in helping the students on an individual basis. The mock group discussions, personal interviews, test series, and pre-placement meetings helped me bag an offer from one of India's leading FMCG companies ADANI WILMAR as their Area Sales Manager. I still cannot forget the late-night conversation with Prof. Qaish Khan just before the day of the interview process and the guidance of Prof. Buddhaditya Padhi sir and Amit sir on the campus that helped me crack the interview. From knowing the ABCD of management to ending up with Kotler, I can proudly thank KSOM for all the memories and learnings.
I am grateful to KIIT University, its Faculty, T&D department. I am thankful to the teachers who supported and corrected us throughout the time. The T&D department has made ensure in getting every student is placed. Though our classes were held online but never felt a lack of interest as the teachers made the course interesting by conducting activities and seminars. I want to thank my mentor Prof.Sugato Tripathy who always encouraged us, had confidence in us and helped us in every situation whenever needed. At last, I would like to proudly say that I have completed my MBA from the best institute.
My aim to join the KIIT School of Management started when I was working with Amazon India. I had planned that after my B. Tech, I would work for two years and then complete my MBA. Unfortunately, even though we could not visit the beautiful campus due to the pandemic, there was no let-up in studies. The quality of the faculty and their brilliant ways of delivering lectures made us crave more classes. Moreover, the course curriculum is so thorough and interesting that it made the entire learning journey very comfortable and easy for us. Several programs are conducted in KSOM, like Konfidant, a corporate mentorship program. It helped me understand the requirements of the industry and how to prepare myself accordingly. Several conclaves of Finance, marketing, HR, operations, and Business analytics enabled me to interact with top professionals and understand the functioning of the industry. We also heard about several real experiences in the industry. The mentor-mentee program helps us to identify our weaknesses and how we can work on them to make them into one of our strengths. Due to this system, I had the opportunity to interact with Prof Sraddha Padhi, whose contribution helped me become a smart professional. I would also like to mention the guidance I received from Prof Sugato Tripathy, who has always been a pillar of strength. Mock GD, personal interviews, and the test series helped me bag an offer from GEP as a Sourcing Analyst. KSOM completely changed me as a person and gave me the wings to fly and achieve my dream job. Therefore, I can proudly say that joining KSOM was one of the best decisions. Thank you for all the memories.
Tarini Prasanna Mohapatra
My relationship with KIIT started in 2020 when I decided to pursue my MBA from KSOM. In a time of great uncertainty, KSOM provided me with excellent support to continue my studies. Even when the whole country was in lockdown, KSOM was the first institute to commence classes virtually, giving the students a headstart. Even though all lectures were online, the exceptional faculty and IT team at KSOM made the experience of online education very enjoyable and rewarding. The outbound orientation program allowed me to interact with my batch mates and effectively understand the theoretical concepts of management. The Corporate Mentorship Program, Konfidant, helped me clarify my doubt regarding the actual Industry and its functioning. I got an opportunity to interact with an industry professional, and he taught me the real experiences of the Industry. The conclaves of Finance, Marketing, HR, and Analytics allowed me to interact with speakers from different industries. One of the things which differentiate KSOM from other institutes is the mentor-mentee program, and as a part of this program, I got a chance to be the mentee of Prof. Jyotiranjan Hota. His contribution to me cannot be expressed in words, and I cannot thank him enough for helping me climb the ladder of success. KSOM has a dedicated Training and Placement department which works very hard in catering to the needs of all the students on an individual basis. The mock group discussions, personal interviews, and the test series contributed to helping me bag an offer from Deloitte. Our beloved founder, Shri Achyuta Samanta sir, and our esteemed director, Dr. S. K. Mahapatra sir, jointly motivated me from the beginning of my journey at KSOM. I am always grateful to them. KSOM has helped me immensely, building up my profile as per the Industry’s requirements and personally by helping me inculcate qualities like time management and teamwork. I will forever be grateful to KSOM. Thank you for a wonderful headstart and lots of memories.
I thank KSOM and its faculties for all of their efforts in grooming us and turning us into corporate experts. They constantly went out of their way to help me with my general growth and to strengthen my technical knowledge. I shall be eternally thankful to them for providing me with a practical learning platform and for preparing me for the corporate world. Our institution has supplied us with a very advanced and efficient platform for training and placement exposure. Finally, I want to express my gratitude to the institution for providing us with the greatest possible placement possibilities.
First and foremost, I'd like to thank my faculty members for serving as my support system during my academic career. KSOM is a location where you may discover a mix of learning, entertainment, culture, literature, and other life-changing activities. The University's education is comprehensive and beneficial to a career-oriented student. The University's regular activities helped me to take a step ahead, inspired me to maintain cordial relationships with everyone, and showed me how to operate as part of a team. KSOM provided me with the opportunity to meet a variety of individuals and acquire a variety of skills. In addition, the faculty and the placement office have been really helpful. I am grateful to the Training & Placement cell for providing me with a platform to improve my talents and an opportunity to demonstrate them. I greatly appreciate our University's placement procedure; everyone works hard for all students so that they may be readily placed in the top firms.
I started my career with KIIT School of Management-2020 to pursue my MBA. The curriculum was so exceptional, and it was designed to help us develop our business skills. In addition, various student clubs promote student interest in events and allow us to share our ideas for college and society. Regardless of the digital learning mode, KIIT has provided me with the best opportunity to excel, develop my leadership skills, and work in a positive environment. The Konfidant, a corporate mentoring program, has assisted me in developing my career aspirations. The conclaves sessions were highly enlightening and informative. The mentor-mentee session with my faculty mentor, Prof. Arvind Tripathy, was highly beneficial; he has always encouraged me to keep learning and continue working towards my goals. Academically, the faculty were supportive and were focused on preparing me for a diverse exposure. The training and placement department made us go through rigorous training such as mock aptitude tests, group discussions, and personal interviews, which enhanced my soft skills and gained practical knowledge. I consider myself fortunate to get this opportunity to work in Deloitte (Risk Advisory,) and I am excited to seek new challenges in a new location while pursuing my dreams. I am genuinely grateful to have been a part of this incredible community like KSOM. Thank you for all the guidance.
My experience in KSOM has been great, amazing, and pleasant to date. Our online classes started on 17th August 2020, and since then, every day has been a new learning experience. Though due to COVID-19, there were no physical mode classes, the constant support and guidance I got from all our professors are commendable. Our teachers cleared all the doubts, and the concepts were made easier using real-life industry examples in a crystal-clear manner, which helped get an in-depth insight into the marketing world and human resources. The case studies and class discussions helped develop critical thinking abilities, which helped build strategies necessary for sustaining future ventures. All the conclaves in Marketing, Finance, and HR fields helped get a comprehensible picture of the recent industry happenings, and the esteemed speakers from every part of the world were cherries on the cake. The workshops held after every conclave helped me know about various exciting management-related topics, and I got to clear my doubts from famous personalities. Knowledge Dialogue Sessions were very informative, and I got industry-like experiences from them. Our Training and Placement Officer Sir, i.e., Sri Jenamani Amit Kumar Sir, always helped me during any difficulty I faced, starting from my internship time until I got placed. He also helps me whenever I reach out to him with my doubts. So, I would like to say that KSOM helped a lot to give a fantastic start to my career.
I want to extend my sincere gratitude to all the teachers who have helped me transform my journey and inculcated the values of professionalism and soft skills, which helped me achieve the predefined goals that I always wanted. Various training and development programs introduce us to the corporate world and real-life experiences. We were also taught how a person should have high emotional intelligence to succeed in Life. This entire journey has taught me how to become a leader and be active all the time to face any chaotic or disruptive situation that has suddenly arisen. Also, the team spirit has also been instilled with the various clubs that organize multiple events and the behavior one should show towards their peers and how a person will take decision when faced upon a similar situation as already a base had been set up. Comprehensive learning was the most helpful tool since it ensures that we are up to the mark and know where one has to work to succeed. The unique features like Conclaves and Konfidant helped us interact with various successful heads of corporates who provided knowledge through their real-life experiences. The institution assigned a mentor to a group of students who could help them as and when they needed it. The decision of choosing the institute to complete my educational Life was magnificent.
KSOM gives all its students ample opportunities to learn and enhance their skills to be corporate-ready. The mentor-mentee arrangement ensures individual focus on each student. My mentor is not only a guide but a confidant who goes out of his way to secure our futures. In addition, regular corporate interaction ensures each student is prepared to face the business world. Providing the perfect amalgamation of excellent academics and extra-curricular activities, KSOM leaves no stone unturned to offer us the best of the best.
My relationship with KIIT began 2 years back in 2020 when I took up the MBA course from this prestigious institute. It was a beautiful experience to be a part of KIIT. The quality of faculty and the culture of the school helped me to reach where I stand today. Initially, I used to panic before taking any step. I had a few anxiety issues. Here in KSOM I got proper mentorship in each and every single stage of my journey along with quality guidance. The national conclaves helped a lot in understanding the current corporate world. Gradually my skills improved, with continuous growth in my knowledge and outlook. Now I stand tall, filled with confidence, with complete clarity and vision of the direction I’m heading to. I believe joining KSOM was one of the best decisions of my life. Thanks to everyone who always stood by me. Thanks to my mentor (Prof Sugato Tripathy), my teachers and friends. Without your support, it would not have been possible.

My journey at KSOM has been an exhilarating experience. I am one of those students in KSOM who has participated in every opportunity that KSOM provided. Even though it was all virtual, KSOM made sure everyone got adequate relevant exposure. The unique Mentoring concept, the teaching style of the faculty and all the personal and professional grooming session made me confident to face the world. I thank KSOM for everything. It has given me the wings to fly.
MBA being such an all-rounder course was a challenge when I stepped in because of being somebody from the media background. However, this was such a relief that the faculties were helpful enough, and the placement preparation was on point. In addition, there were corporate mentors and placement mentors who were helpful at every step of the process.
Shakti Saurav Sahoo
The Subjects were taught in an interactive manner. The KSOM faculties are friendly and professional at the same time. The sessions were informative, and the boundaries of syllabus studies didn't stop the faculties from teaching us everything we have to learn, from leadership qualities to corporate qualities.
Despite the Online mode, the classes were engaging and interactive. In addition, the placement preparation was detailed and profile-oriented. This was such a good experience as a student and a future corporate individual.
The teachers were not just helpful but also equally supportive. The assignments and activities included in the curriculum were beneficial for a 360-degree preparation for the corporate world.

Amogh Vikram Sinha
My journey with KIIT started in the year 2014 when I enrolled for B Tech in Electronics and Telecommunication. After completing my Graduation, I worked for some time and then joined KSOM for MBA. Even though my classes started online, the quality of education, the constant help, and support from KSOM have helped me embrace this new changing world with confidence. In addition, the Konfidant program helped me interact with an industry mentor who helped me further understand how the industry works and discuss my future goals and all the other doubts that I had. KSOM also offers a wide array of conclaves related to HR, Marketing, Finance, Business Analytics, and Operations, which gave me the opportunity to develop an overall understanding of these areas of business and my area of specialization. These conclaves also helped me interact with the business leaders of these areas and helped develop a point of view regarding the current happenings in these areas. The Mentor-Mentee system at KSOM allows a mentor to be assigned to a student from the first day of Joining. My mentor Prof. Dr. Sumita Mishra, and my mentee group gave me constant support and encouragement, giving me the strength to do well at KSOM. The functional trainings, mock GD & PIs, and practice tests organized by the Training and placement department at KSOM and their constant help and support have helped me understand the gaps in my skills and helped me take steps to fill them and get prepared for the placement season. Finally, I would like to thank KSOM for giving me this opportunity to learn new things and gain new friends and experiences, which has helped me become the person I am today.
The journey with KIIT University started back in 2020 when I decided to opt for MBA from this prestigious university. From listening and reading about KIIT to finally making it at this university in 2020 to finally getting placement in 2021, this journey has been all worth it. Thanks to the quality of faculties, the immense opportunity, and the KIIT School of Management culture. From Day 1 of orientation, it has been a learning curve at KSOM. Firstly, the outbound orientation program, Konfluence, allowed me to interact with my batch mates and effectively understand the theoretical concepts of management. Then the mentor-mentee system of KSOM positively differentiates it from the rest of the MBA colleges. Because of this system, I got a chance to be the mentee of Prof. Piyusa Pritiparnna Das. His guidance and contribution towards me have helped me to climb the ladder of success. The conclaves at KSOM give you an immense opportunity to meet and know industry leaders across different industries. The workshops at these conclaves gave me insights that helped me in my academics and obviously my placement. I thank the dedicated Training and Placement department, which works very hard in catering to the needs of all the students on an individual basis. The mock group discussions, personal interviews, test series, and pre-placement meetings helped me bag an offer from one of India's leading 2-wheeler company TVS Motors as their Territory Manager. I still cannot forget the late-night session just before the interview process of TVS by Prof. Joydeep Biswas, Prof. Surya Mishra, and Prof. Qaish Khan that helped me crack the interview. I thank the placement team for providing me with the opportunity for a summer internship at OUTLOOK and the final placement at TVS. The college has shaped me as an individual and contributed to building my personality as per the industry's requirements. From being an amateur who knew nothing about Marketing to standing today as a marketing pro, I can proudly say that my decision to enroll in KSOM was correct. KSOM is a land of opportunities and the best institute for individuals ready to dedicate their efforts. Thank you for all the memories. I wish to be a part of this prestigious institute forever.
I joined KSOM in 2020 when I decided to opt for MBA. Even though I had never visited the campus and attended the classes online, it still provided an excellent environment for learning. The college encouraged overall development through initiatives such as the mentor-mentee program, Konfidant, and various conclaves. In addition, KSOM provided me with exposure to the right mix of academic experience and industry experience through its summer internship program. Besides, the college’s training and placement team was a great help and support while preparing for placements and interviews. I thank KSOM for training and guiding me to be corporate ready.
It was a couple of years back I joined the KIIT School of Management. My main goal was to find a fully accredited program and groom me ardently to become corporate ready via an unprecedented virtual medium. And that's where my affinity with KSOM began by deciding to opt for a two-year full-fledged MBA program from this eminent university. The extensive all-around cooperation and support from academic & non-academic staff has been commendable and helped me succeed in my MBA journey. Each professor is top-tier, knowledgeable, helpful, and an expert in their respective field. Their ability to answer questions and recommend additional readings is exceptional. Programs such as Konfluence, Konfidant, and Kuriosity were highly professional and industry-based, allowing me to develop my strengths, helped me identify professional opportunities, and work towards them. In addition, eminent faculties and guest lecturers, mentorship programs, summer internships, workshops, and live projects have sharpened my skills and encouraged my will to achieve all I desired. The conclaves of Marketing, Finance, HR, and Analytics permitted me to communicate with speakers from various ventures. The mentor-mentee arrangement of KSOM certainly separates it from the remainder of the MBA universities. Due to this framework, I persuaded an opportunity to be the mentee of Prof. Jitendra Mohanty. His commitment to me can't be communicated in words, and I can't thank him enough to assist me with moving up in progress. KSOM has devoted Training and Placement session, which buckles down in obliging the requirements of the relative multitude of understudies on an individual basis. The mock test series, GD&PIs ardently contributed to helping me bag an offer from Deloitte USI for a Tax Consultant profile. Matricks - The Marketing Club of KSOM and Rotaract Club of KSOM have helped build my confidence in being a leader, given me great people to connect with, and developed many skills that can be used for future endeavors. It has taught me many entrepreneurial and leadership skills, unlike any other experience than I have had. Studying at KSOM has equipped me with professional and practical knowledge, which I firmly believe is a life-long skill. It has taught me to be innovative and meticulous in my approach to any strategic goals set for a professional. Whether the work scope is within the domain of expertise, a proper approach can solve all issues at hand. It's because of the knowledge I gained here. I was addled whether I made the right choice by pursuing MBA at KSOM? But the last two years have been the answer to my question. Yes, I did. Those were the most valuable years of my life, where I realized that gaining knowledge is a continuous process, but shaping attitude has always been the first step towards my success journey. Thank you for all the memories and teachings. Until next time. Sayonara.
In the year 2020, I joined KSOM. Because the epidemic was at its apex, we started our lessons online. KSOM never made us feel as if we were not on campus. I recall being anxious since we wouldn't be able to go to campus and therefore wouldn't be able to get to know our classmates, but the orientation let us get to know many of them. They offer a mentor-mentee program in which mentors develop, assist, and train pupils. Prof. Manoj Jena, my mentor, was the coolest person I've ever met. He was there for me when I had the tiniest problem, and he helped me out with it. Other initiatives at KSOM, like conclaves, Club activities, alumni connect where alumni give their valuable insights and many more, kept us motivated throughout our MBA careers. The Konfidant program, where we meet corporates who assist us meet the real world and coach us on how to groom ourselves and what we need to do to be industry-ready for placements, is one of the greatest things one could experience. During my summer internship, I had the opportunity to work for a startup company where I received personalized attention for everything I did, which is the most excellent part of working for a startup. I faced real-life business challenges and learned a lot of skills and how corporations operate. The faculties are always willing to assist anyone. After arriving at KSOM, I learned a lot from my peers and faculty members. Over here, everyone is quite cooperative. At each stage, I gained a great deal of knowledge. For example, before our placement season began, we were given a special session on the fundamentals of our domain, which aided us. We were also provided personal guidance for our CVs, which assisted me in cracking the first company that came to campus, Deloitte. I can't thank KSOM enough for all they've done to help me attain my objectives.
I joined KSOM in the year 2020. It has been an incredible journey till now, almost completed one and a half years though I have been attending online classes throughout but never felt aloof. Even at this challenging time, KSOM has done a great job conducting classes online. The quality of the faculty and the environment is very alluring. I feel proud to join this prestigious university, and I have enjoyed each and every moment of this journey. Through different programs beginning with National Konclaves for Business Analytics, Marketing, Human Resources, and Finance. It gives a lot of industry exposure as we have different speakers from different industries. Also, pre-conclave events like Business Simulations give us hands-on practice on case study solutions, an integral part of the MBA curriculum. Then we have Konfidant, a corporate mentorship program where a corporate guide is allotted to us who gives us insights about the industries, trains us on personality traits, and makes us corporate ready. These programs give us corporate exposure helps us build networking which is helpful for our future endeavors. And then, we have a regular monthly event conducted by the various clubs of KSOM that are always engaging and learning experience. Being part of two clubs, namely the sports club and the analytics club of KSOM helped me grow as a person as working in a team, taking responsibilities, organizing, and managing events. And then, I am very much grateful to my mentor Prof. Bhuwandeep Singh who has been guiding us since day one, joining the college. He has always given us positivity and guidance throughout our summer internship program and placement season. Lastly, I would like to express my gratitude to the KSOM placement and training department, as they have trained us well. The aptitude & verbal classes and mock interviews were beneficial during my placement. I am very thankful for this training as I could bag an offer from Deloitte USI as a Risk Advisory (EEM). I feel that it was my best decision to get enrolled in an MBA course at KSOM. Thank you for all the memories.
KIIT has always been that one college that I have wanted to get into since I was about to step into graduation back in 2017 and that wish came to true after 3 long years, in 2020, when I got selected for the MBA Program of KSOM. I knew that with this great curriculum and an excellent team of faculty members, my skills would be refined and when I graduate, I would be ready for the corporate world. 2020 was a tough year, the pandemic and the lockdown made everything very tough for us, but KSOM made sure that we did not feel that we were missing out on something and carried on everything, be it academics, training programs, extra-curricular activities, conclaves, workshops, Konfidant program very efficiently. Being a biotechnology graduate, when I joined MBA, I was clueless about what my passion was. I knew I belonged to the corporate world, but I didn’t know which direction to go. Here I explored myself and discovered my passion for marketing and analytics. I cannot thank enough our faculties, each of them who were with us to guide us in any situation. I feel privileged that I had the guidance of Prof. Arvind Tripathy throughout this program. KSOM has a Placement Training program that makes it so different from the other B-schools, mock GDs, PIs, test series contributed in helping me to bag an offer from Deloitte for the Associate Tech. Advisor profile. This college brings out the best in you, enhancing one’s skills or making their students ready for the corporate world. Therefore, I can say that enrolling in KSOM was a correct decision.
"KSOM is responsible for a major portion of what I've accomplished." It did an excellent job of providing me with the knowledge and skills I needed to succeed in the workplace, focusing on my entire personality and knowledge growth. I've developed a variety of abilities over the last two years that will be useful throughout my professional career. KSOM has given me an armory of skills while also instilling in me the confidence that I am as excellent as the best elsewhere. In the end, that is the most powerful confidence booster. Konfidant's Corporate Mentorship Program assisted me in resolving my doubts about how the industry works. It allowed me to communicate with an industry professional, and she instilled in me real-world industry experiences. I interacted with speakers from many businesses at the Finance, Marketing, HR, and Analytics conclaves. The mentor-mentee system at KSOM sets it apart from the other MBA schools, and it is thanks to this structure, I had the privilege to be Prof. Bhuwandeep Singh's mentee. His contribution to me is indescribable, and I owe him a debt of gratitude for assisting me on my path to success. KSOM offers a dedicated Training and Placement section that works tirelessly to meet the particular needs of all students. The simulated group talks, personal interviews, and test series helped me get a job offer from Deloitte for a Tech. Advisory position. The college molded me as a person and helped me develop a personality that meets the profession's needs. I can confidently state that enrolling at KSOM was the best decision I ever made.

My relationship with KIIT started in the year 2020 when I decided to pursue my MBA from KSOM. In a time of great uncertainty, KSOM provided me with great support to continue with my studies. Even when the whole country was in lockdown, KSOM was the first institute to commence classes virtually, giving the students a headstart. Even though all lectures were online, the amazing faculty and IT team at KSOM made the experience of online education very enjoyable and rewarding. The outbound orientation program allowed me to interact with my batch mates and effectively understand the theoretical concepts of management. The Corporate Mentorship Program, Konfidant, helped me clarify my doubt regarding the actual Industry and its functioning. I got an opportunity to interact with an industry professional, and he taught me the real experiences of the Industry. The conclaves of Finance, Marketing, HR, and Analytics allowed me to interact with speakers from different industries. One of the things which differentiate KSOM from other institutes is the mentor-mentee program, and as a part of this program, I got a chance to be the mentee of Prof. Jyotiranjan Hota. His contribution to me cannot be expressed in words, and I cannot thank him enough for helping me climb the ladder of success. KSOM has a dedicated Training and Placement department which works very hard in catering to the needs of all the students on an individual basis. The mock group discussions, personal interviews, and the test series contributed to helping me bag an offer from Deloitte. Our beloved founder, Shri Achyuta Samanta sir, and our esteemed director, Dr. S. K. Mahapatra sir, jointly motivated me from the beginning of my journey at KSOM. I am always grateful to them. KSOM has helped me immensely, building up my profile as per the Industry’s requirements and personally by helping me teach qualities like time management and teamwork. I will forever be grateful to KSOM. Thank you for a wonderful headstart and lots of memories.
My journey at KIIT School of Management started in 2020. Even though I couldn’t visit the campus, I still managed to create a lot of memories in this one and a half years. It was only possible because of the amazing faculty and incredible infrastructure. I am glad to be a part of such a prestigious university. There are regular events that keep motivating and grooming each student. Firstly, the National Konclaves for Marketing, Business Analytics, HR, and Finance create a huge platform for students to interact with corporate people from different industries. I am very much honored to organize and be a part of such a big event. It not only helped me to groom my leadership skills but also helped me in learning management skills. Secondly, the Konfidant program which is the corporate mentoring program, where we are trained and mentored by experienced corporate people. I am very much thankful to my corporate mentor for all her guidance and training and making us corporate ready. The club events that different clubs of KSOM organize are not only entertaining but also a learning opportunity. Being part of one of these clubs has helped me to upskill myself. I want to thank my mentor, Prof. BCM Patnaik, who has guided and helped me since day one of this MBA journey. The monthly mentor-mentee meetings were the best part where he individually entertained each concern that we had and guided us throughout. Finally, the individual grooming before the placement drive conducted by the Training and Placement department of KSOM was very helpful in my entire preparation, which helped me bag an offer from Deloitte USI for Risk Advisory (EEM) profile. KSOM has helped me to develop my personality and make me corporate ready. Joining KSOM was one of my best decision. Thank you for all the memories.
My relationship with KSOM began in 2020 when I decided to opt for my MBA from this prestigious university. I was amazed by the infrastructure of KSOM. The quality of education and the culture KSOM offered in the time of pandemic & lockdown when the whole world was at a pause somehow gave me hope for my future as well. When all the other MBA colleges were thinking about what they should do for the future of their students, KSOM has already started daily online lecture sessions with its full efficiency. At first, my journey at KSOM had begun with the orientation program, Konfluence, which allowed me to understand the theoretical concepts of management effectively and helped me get in touch with my batch mates. From the early stage of the two-year course, KSOM has organized a Corporate Mentorship Program, Konfidant, which helped me be corporate ready since day one and get insights & guidance. It allowed me to interact with an industry professional. He taught me the real experiences of the Industry and groomed me to overcome all my shortcomings. The conclaves of Finance, Marketing, HR, and Analytics allowed me to gain knowledge from many industry leaders through their panel discussions & workshops. KSOM has a dedicated Training and Placement department that works efficiently to cater to all the students' needs from day one. The mock personal interview sessions and the test series packages helped me bag an offer from Deloitte USI in the Associate Solution Advisory role. I can proudly say that my decision to get enrolled into KSOM was correct, and I am a KIITian by heart, a proud member of the KIIT family today. Thank you for all the memories KIIT School of Management.
I was consistently amazed by the foundation and the appealing climate of KIIT at whatever point I used to pass by while seeking after B.Tech in the next-door college Silicon Institute of Technology. The audits from family, companions, and peers regarding the nature of personnel and the way of life at KIIT School of Management, by one way or another, touched off a flash inside me to select myself into the MBA Curriculum. Despite all changes in the web-based mode, the entire placement and CAAS team investigated every possibility to prepare us for the placement season. The mock group discussions, personal interviews, and the test series on myperfectice platform contributed to assisting me with packing a proposal from Deloitte for an advisor job in Risk and Financial Management. The corporate mentorship program Konfidant helped me to have genuine encounters with the Industry. The conclaves of Finance, Marketing, HR, and Analytics permitted me to collaborate with speakers from across various businesses. The mentor-mentee arrangement of KSOM decidedly separates it from the remainder of the MBA universities. On account of this framework, I got an opportunity to be the mentee of Prof. Piyusa P Das. I can't thank him enough for assisting me with moving ahead towards my career goal. The school has formed me as an individual and contributed to building my character according to the business prerequisite. I can gladly say that my choice of getting selected into KSOM has hit the bull's eye. Thank you KSOM, for everything.
When the pandemic hit the nation in March 2020, it forced me to quit my job and return to my native place. However, the pandemic gave me ample time to reflect upon and figure out my next career move. Having had a prior degree in B. Tech, pursuing an MBA degree seemed the next logical thing. And thus, I began my journey with the KIIT School of Management. However, my admission to the institution was delayed by several weeks due to unforeseeable circumstances, which put me behind the syllabus in all the subjects. But with the help of all the subject faculty and their determination to help students beyond the scope of virtual classroom put me at par with my peers. Even if the entire education system had shifted to online mode, the MBA program in KSOM was never short of the physical classroom interaction, doubt clearing sessions, and activities held by the college every week. Apart from that, the mentor-mentee program of KSOM helped shape my MBA. I express my profound gratitude to my mentor Mr. Ashok Kumar Sar. Throughout the highs and lows that I faced in & outside the classroom, he was the one who gave me his unconditional support that shaped my confidence and personality. The Konfidant program by KSOM, helped me get a good amount of exposure to the inside of the corporate world when I was assigned a Corporate mentor who further guided me to get clarity about my career goals & aspirations. Being a part of a domain club under Student Development Committee boosted my networking skills, and worked in a semi-corporate environment with like-minded individuals. The training provided by the placement committee team every week was on point & guaranteed my placement in Risk & Financial Advisory role with DELOITTE. I will forever be indebted to KIIT School of Management for providing me with such career-shaping opportunities and the right set of training and hardships that further shaped me as a person and boosted my confidence.
I joined the Institution a month late, but the teachers were so helpful that I rejoined my peers within a week. The teachers use practicality and examples to make us understand the minutiae of the concepts. They were also super helpful during the placement processes preparing us for the interviews with utmost care and dedication. They didn't let the online medium take away from the fun of learning Management. The Club activities are a delightful bonus.
Completing a Master’s degree is an achievement but completing it from the right place makes the real difference. It has been a privilege to be a part of KIIT University for the past six years. I am completing my graduation and post-graduation under the same roof with constant care and support from the Faculty members and the Training and Placement department. KIIT School of Management has contributed the most to my career path. Along with the academics, the events and activities organized by my university starting from Konfidant, the Conclaves for HR, Marketing, Analytics, Finance, etc., and the Mentor-Mentee Program. All of them played a crucial role in making my career path. Teachers are given the uttermost respect in the hierarchy of our society. My Faculty Members deserve the same. Their tireless efforts to make us understand the concepts and give us ample industrial examples to understand what we are learning is simply commendable. Lastly, the cherry on the cake, my Training & Placement department ensured that all my efforts were valued, and I ended up at an organization where my skills and potential are valued. I couldn’t be more thankful to my Alma Matter, My KIIT, My KSOM.
I Joined KSOM last year when I decided to opt for an MBA course from KIIT University. When I visited the campus once before the pandemic, I was amazed by the infrastructure and the environment of KSOM. KSOM has one of the best faculties. Each and every faculty are friendly and supportive. Though it was a completely different atmosphere in the online medium, faculty, seniors, and classmates in KSOM ensured that even though we were away from campus, we learned the various aspects through innovative ways. There is never a dull moment in KSOM. The Konfidant Program helped me a lot in clearing my doubts, and by interacting with professionals from different industries, it instills me with confidence that I could reach where I am now. The Conclaves organized by KSOM every year, like Finance, Marketing, HR, and Analytics, allowed me to interact with speakers all around the globe and from different industries. The mentor-mentee system is one of the most unique, and it differentiates from other MBA colleges. Because of this system, I got a chance to be the mentee of Dr. Shikta Singh. Her contribution is indispensable to my success. I want to thank the Training and Placement Cell of KSOM, who worked very hard in catering to our needs on an individual basis, be it providing mock GDs or Personal Interviews, which helped me bag an offer from Deloitte. The clubs which KSOM has help us to build leadership skills and get a chance to work as a team. KSOM has shaped me as an individual and contributed to making my personality as per the industry requirement. Therefore, my decision of getting enrolled into KSOM was the correct choice. Thank you for all the memories. I will cherish these memories throughout my life.

The constant support from KSOM faculty helped me realize my true potential and achieve my dream job. Thank you KSOM, for always encouraging me to challenge myself and mentoring me throughout this journey. I realized that patience, effort and dedication never goes in vain!

"BBA in KSOM taught me important business concepts that I wouldn't have known if had not taken the program. The soft skills I was able to learn through the classroom environment, put me at an incredible advantage in comparison to others. I have been trained to think on my feet, be motivated, be knowledgeable in what I do, and, most importantly, be professional".
I came to KSOM as a carefree, exuberant young mind that looked forward to enjoy college life and now I leave the college like an ambitious and confident professional ready to step into the corporate world. The pedagogy here is designed to make you think outside the box and in the process discover different abilities and avenues for personal development that you could’ve never thought of. Even during the pandemic, the college made sure that we didn’t stay out of touch. Professors here, were ever ready to help me out whenever I was stuck at any point in my academic endeavour. Beyond academics too, whenever I faced any problem in any other sphere of life, the professors always lent me a helping hand and provided me with valuable advice. I can surely say the professors here gave a new direction to my life. The continuous evaluation, group discussions and presentations are designed to groom you at every step of the way and bring out the corporate ready professional in you. The placement team here does a tremendous job behind the scenes to make sure we are connected to the corporate world outside and are also provided with ample opportunities to help us bag our dream roles. My placement in Nestle is the best ending to my journey that I could have asked for and I thank the college and it’s placement team for that. All of this was supported by a campus that I could vouch for its beauty. It suffices to say, the campus feels like a home away from home. The infrastructure and facilities provided here are truly world class and second to none. A mix of greenery with meticulous architecture, the campus makes for a unique experience as far as one’s college life is concerned. The hostels never made me feel like I was staying at a place different than my home; and the classrooms support the pedagogy with the latest technology to make sure our true potentials are realized. In conclusion, I can say that my journey in KSOM has been truly unique and memorable. One that I will never forget. I wish I could finish my college experience whilst I being physically in college but the current situation does not allow for it to happen. I leave this place with a heavy heart.
My life and KIIT are like two souls as it has been 11 years of association with the Alma Mater - from B. Tech to MBA, a decade full of enjoyment, knowledge and learning. The place is like a mini India where we have diversified cultures from different states of India and from different sections of the society. KSOM is unique in a way where both academic and co-curricular activities are balanced. When I joined in KIIT in 2010, I was just a normal student. Now when I pass out I have a different personality and understand my life goals better. The exposure I have got here has been very helpful. “Sharing is caring” – the mentor mentee system at KSOM justifies this quote. Here, the faculty actually cares for each student – both professionally and personally. Placement training is taken very seriously here. There are practice tests, mock GDs and PIs before any upcoming placement.

Right from the day of taking admission to KIIT School of Management (KSOM), I could see this was one of the best institutes in the country with highly learned and experienced faculty and top-notch facilities on the campus. The college encouraged an all-round development of the students in a holistic environment with constant exposure, practical learning opportunities through various initiatives like outbound orientation program, mentor-mentee program and various conclaves. The extraordinary environment is a direct replica of corporate organizations. Konfidant, a corporate mentoring program, provided a platform to get direct mentorship from highly experienced corporate mentors. The faculty put all their efforts into teaching us and making sure every students’ doubts and discussions are resolved and not just that they try to bridge the gap between classroom learning and practical situations by sharing their experience and high-end study materials. KSOM provides us all with the right tools to enable us to compete in the corporate world. KSOM was definitely the right choice for me to pursue my MBA. Thanks KSOM for making me able to secure a job in my dream company Amazon!!
Taking admission to KIIT School of Management (KSOM) was one of the best decisions that I had taken. KSOM has wonderful faculties who are very cooperative. The campus environment is very positive. The training and placement department continuously assists in the placement process. KSOM has given the constant exposure to some of the industry stalwarts through conclaves (Marketing, Human Resource, Finance, and Analytics), guest lectures, and seminars opened up a bright new world for me as that helped me edge my business knowledge and understand the functioning of any company. The right mix of faculty with industry experience and teaching experience adds to the list of what someone would like to look for when choosing a B-school. Rigorous training was given to us from the beginning of our MBA session in various rounds of mock group discussions and personal interviews conducted by KSOM in some cases there where industry experts were invited to our campus. The year 2020 was very critical for our batch as we shifted to complete online mode from a traditional model. The teachers were very co-operative and never allowed us to lag in courses and the exam was conducted smoothly. There was constant support from my mentor Prof. Mr. Manoj Jena and my respective subject teachers during my Summer Internships and also during the classes including the presentations. These couple of months had pushed us so hard almost to the edge that now I can say it has made me capable of adapting to a different environment in a short period. THANK YOU KSOM FOR MAKING ME A BETTER PERSON.

The MBA program at KIIT School of Management (KSOM) was life giving me a second chance, quite literally. The decision to join KSOM was because of the faculty who carry a rich industry experience and have academic qualifications from top tier business schools and corporate experience from international organizations. KSOM helped me build a foundation of the management career that I have always dreamt of. The program gave me a holistic experience in terms of outstanding classroom experience coupled with industry engagement which has prepared me for the fast paced, changing by the second business environment that requires managers to take decisions with limited information and unsurmountable consequences. Thanks to the variety of industry connect programs like Konfidant, domain specific Conclaves, subject area guest lectures, I was able to network with leading industry professionals and will be able to leverage those connections to build meaningful relationships that will help me grow as I start my career in management. I could not be more proud to be carrying with myself the tag of KSOM’s Class of 2021 as I start my journey as a resilient, dynamic and strategic manager at YES Bank in a pandemic struck world, qualities that the corporate culture demands, one’s that I have inculcated thanks to the exposure at KIIT School of Management.
Right after my graduation in Commerce, I always wanted to do an MBA, and what could be the best college in Odisha other than KIIT School of Management (KSOM). The enthusiasm and energy of the college has always pushed me to move ahead of my comfort zone and accomplish tasks, of course with the immense help from all the faculty of the college. Life at KIIT School of Management has been a roller coaster since day 1, where one has so much to do in such a short period of time. Be it academics, extracurricular activities, placements, conclaves, club events, or late-night submissions. You always feel like giving 100% and improve your learning. The quality of teaching, infrastructure, staff and overall learning experience is the best in class. An enormous number of tests, assignments, quizzes, and projects need to be done with a focus on practical learning and conceptual understanding. The atmosphere is so energetic that there is not a moment of dullness or drudgery. The internship provided by the college helped me gain hands-on experience about the corporate world. The support from faculty mentor, other faculty and placement department at each and every moment was immensely helpful. Even if I thank Ksom in numerous ways, it will not suffice. Thank You KSOM for building confidence in me and making me industry ready.
Joining KSOM was a game-changing decision for me as it helped me grow holistically through various learning opportunities and experiences. The extensive exposure and incessant grind helped calibrate the novice in me to become corporate ready by broadening my horizons. The unending challenge of being around people with different perspectives taught me a lot about life. Above that, the knowledge gained from the learned faculty and the challenges thrown by them helped me get out of my comfort zone and groomed me well for my placements at HUL. I am also indebted to my mentor, Professor Isa Mishra, for her insurmountable support and guidance throughout this journey. The industry-academia connect at KSOM is also commendable as it kept us engaged throughout in various arrangements like Conclaves, Konfidant, Konfluence, Kweettalks exposing us to the industry and connecting with stalwarts. Other co-curricular and extra-curricular activities also gave enriching experiences. All told, KSOM is a platform which shapes the students to become the best versions of themselves.

I still remember the day when I stepped into the KIIT School of Management (KSOM) campus after enrolling myself into the MBA course. The atmosphere was electrifying, the campus was alluring and the infrastructure was beautiful. I was amazed by the efforts that were put by the faculty to groom us. Right from the very beginning my professors have motivated me to strike a balance between academic and extra-curricular activities. The school provided me with a plethora of opportunities, which has helped in shaping my personality and demeanour. Konfidant has helped me to understand the actual functioning of an industry, where all the students are given a chance to interact with the industry professionals individually. The 4 national conclaves of finance, marketing, HR and analytics, have helped me to really venture out of my cocoon and get exposed to great speakers from across different industries. The placement department at KIIT School of Management has constantly provided us with rigorous training in the form of various mock group discussions, personal interviews and aptitude tests, right from the very beginning of the MBA session. The mentor- mentee system of KIIT School of Management has pushed me to believe in the ideology of shattering the ceiling irrespective of the obstacles.

To sum it up I think KIIT School of Management has provided me with immense practical and theoretical knowledge and inculcated the urge to grow within me. My journey was challenging, meaningful and has given a purpose to my life. THANK YOU SO MUCH KIIT SCHOOL OF MANAGEMENT.

Joining KIIT School of Management as an MBA student is one of the best decisions I’ve taken and my journey wouldn’t have been this good if not for the constant support that I’ve received from the faculty members, my mentor, the placement department, the support staff and my dear friends. Here at KSOM, the faculty is not only knowledgeable but also cooperative. The classes, generally discussion-oriented, are followed by interactive sessions, case studies, presentations, assignments and tests. This phenomenal system of teaching is what helped me clear my concepts and in some way or the other prepared me for my placements. Right from the 2nd semester, we had the provision of placement training sessions which included mock group discussions, mock tests, personal interviews, training classes etc. and has helped me learn, brush my skills up and improve. The Konclaves, Konfluence and Konfidant organized by KSOM helped me interact and converse with several industry experts and acted as my platform to network with corporate leaders. KSOM also has a unique Mentor-Mentee program and I will forever be grateful to Prof. Sugato Tripathy for guiding me in all aspects of life, be it academics, placement preparations, internships and whatnot. Apart from academics, KOM also helped me grow as an individual and I would like to thank KSOM for literally pushing me out of my comfort zone and making me do things that I wouldn’t have otherwise. If not for the constant motivation and deadlines, I would not have bagged my first job at Ultratech Cement Limited.

From a student to being an HR of a renowned company, KSOM has a big role to play in it. KSOM indeed is the best platform that fulfils our dream and helps us to achieve our desired goals. This was not possible without our beloved faculties who are not only knowledgeable but extremely helpful. The mock test, class exams and practice assignments helped me a lot in improving and enhancing my skills. Moreover, the school has a strong connection with the corporate sector due to which I and my friends got placed in a very highly reputed company. I am very proud to be a student of KSOM.
After I joined KSOM, two years passed in no time leaving a wonderful learning experience. The institute provided me with the best possible platforms and infrastructure to excel in my career interests. The experienced faculty made me industry-ready. They have a different approach towards shaping us. They act more as motivators than professors which helped us do things in a proactive manner. I got a chance to learn more about professionalism, the current market and area of improvements through training and development programs conducted by them. During my two years of MBA, I gained not only theoretical but also practical knowledge through internship and live projects. I got to work with ITC which gave an overview of the FMCG industry and now I have got my dream job with TCS. I thank KSOM for guiding me and making me corporate ready. I am proud to be a part of this institution.

My relationship with KIIT began 6 years back in 2015 when I decided to opt for my B. Tech course from this prestigious university. I was awestruck by the infrastructure and the alluring environment of KIIT. The quality of faculties and the culture at KIIT School of Technology somehow ignited a spark within me to enrol myself into the MBA Curriculum as well at KIIT School of Management. Firstly, Konfluence allowed me to interact with my batch mates and understand the theoretical concepts of management in an effective manner. Konfidant helped me in clarifying my doubt regarding the actual industry's functioning. It allowed me to interact with an industry professional, and she inculcated within me the real experiences of the Industry. The Conclaves of Finance, Marketing, HR and Analytics allowed me to interact with speakers from across different industries. The mentor-mentee system of KSOM is something that augments it from the rest of the MBA colleges, and because of this system, I got a chance to be the mentee of Prof. Joydeep Biswas. His contribution towards me cannot be expressed in words and I cannot thank him enough for helping me to climb the ladder of success. KSOM has a dedicated Training and Placement department which works very hard in catering to the needs of all the students on an individual basis. The mock group discussions, and personal interviews and the test series contributed in helping me bag an offer from Tata Steel BSL for an Operations profile. The college has shaped me as an individual and contributed to building my personality as per the requirement of the industry. I can proudly say that my decision of getting enrolled at KSOM was the correct one. Thank you for all the memories.

My journey at KSOM (KIIT SCHOOL OF MANAGEMENT) started in July 2019 and I believe taking admission to KSOM is one of the best decisions of my life. First, I want to thank the faculties of KSOM from the core of my heart. They have put so much effort from the very first day to groom the students as per the expectations of the corporate recruiters. The mentor-mentee program helped me in developing my personality which will be important for my professional and personal career in the near future. MBA in KSOM is a residential program through which I have got not only friends but also a family, my KSOM family and in this pandemic situation, I desperately want to reunite with them. KSOM has taught me some important lessons for time management through a packed schedule of various academic programs which helped me in understanding the value of time. Programs like Konfluence, Konfidant and various Conclaves gave me the opportunity to interact with the corporate people and learn about the condition of the corporate sector. With the help of various academic application-based projects, I got the idea of managing situations and how to cooperatively work with others. In spite of this pandemic situation, KSOM gave me the opportunity to work as an intern in two companies like SmartQ BottleLab Technologies and Anar App. Pvt. Ltd. is a virtual mode that gave me insights into the corporate sector. Finally, I got a job offer from TCS in advance of five months of completion of my MBA degree. The infrastructure in KSOM is outstanding and gave me a college life to remember for the rest of my life. THANK YOU KSOM FOR EVERYTHING.

I came to this college, all ambitious and with the zeal to utilise my 2 years to the best of my abilities. There is undoubtedly no college, but KSOM which gives an experience of an outbound program (KONFLUENCE) only to start learning from Mother Nature; establishing a perfect balance of the mind and body with serene, power-packed sessions. The subsequent days were enriching – with the adequate exposure to Corporate functionalities through events like KONFIDANT, KWEET TALKS AND KNOWLEDGE DIALOGUE SERIES along with fulfilling lectures. I never expected attending classes would be so much fun; the lectures were perfectly designed and delivered by the faculty, even in the online mode of operation! Not only academics but the world-class infrastructure and facilities that KSoM provides, adds up to the hobbies and interests of its students for their overall development. Being fortunate to drive the Literary Club of the college, I was able to put my managerial skills to test. I also feel lucky to have volunteered actively for various corporate events that polished my professionalism and corporate conduct. The time that I spent on the campus will always hold a special place in my heart. Finding yourself among students from all around the world is a rare opportunity. KSOM gave me the most beautiful memories; in its lush green environment, the endless talks over coffee with some great friends and batchmates and seniors, the sleepless nights to put up the best events and of course the unconditional love, support and guidance from a brilliant set of faculty. I will always be grateful to my alma-mater for making me capable of getting placed at Hindustan Unilever. I couldn’t have asked for more. KSOM gave me everything that a B-school student needs and desires. If there is any B-School beyond perfection, it is KSOM!

Despite the limited amount of time I got to spend on the campus because of the pandemic and the sudden lockdown, joining KIIT School Of Management as an MBA student is one of the best decisions I’ve taken and my journey wouldn’t have been this good if not for the constant support that I’ve received from the faculty members, my mentor, the placement department, the support staffs and my dear friends. Here at KSOM, the faculties are not only knowledgeable but also cooperative. The classes, generally discussion-oriented, are followed by interactive sessions, case studies, presentations, assignments and tests. This phenomenal system of teaching is what helped me clear my concepts and in some way or the other prepared me for my placements. Right from the 2nd semester, we had the provision of placement training sessions which included mock group discussions, mock tests, personal interviews, training classes etc. and has helped me learn, brush my skills up and improve. The Conclaves, Konfluence and Konfidant organized by KSOM helped me interact and converse with several industry experts and acted as my platform to network with corporate leaders. KSOM also has a unique Mentor-Mentee program and I will forever be grateful to Dr. Ipsita Nayak for guiding me in all aspects of life, be it academics, placement preparations, internships and whatnot. Apart from academics, KOM also helped me grow as an individual. Being a part of the NSS club, I realized the power of contributing to the betterment of society.

I joined the college being one of the top 5 scorers in the KIITEE Management Exam, and from that day till date, KSOM has provided me with the best facilities, in terms of the study curriculum, campus life and infrastructure, which helped me in my holistic development. The college offered me the best faculties who groomed me in the best possible way, and that again helped me in getting placed in one of my dream companies, i.e. Deloitte. KSOM has always focused equally on the curricular and extracurricular activities, and the college even makes sure that every student is well prepared to face the corporate pressure before they leave the institution. Even in this pandemic scenario, the way KSOM is arranging online classes for us, and preparing us for our exams, shows how much the college cares for its students. The college allows us to have a corporate mentor through the Konfident- Corporate Mentorship program, who acts as our mentor at the corporate level for a lifetime. Even at the college level, each student is assigned to a Faculty Mentor, who helps us at every stage during our college life. Starting from the regular class schedule to the continuous evaluation systems, the college has not only helped me in adding knowledge but also has taught me how to deal with pressure situations with ease and perform well. Apart from that, we have the KIIT Fest and Kolosseum, where the students are exposed to managing events at a higher level, and that’s a very good platform to polish our managing and organizing skills. And there are Annual Conclaves, webinars and seminars, that help us to groom and expose us to the corporate professionals at a very early stage during our college days. KSOM has provided me with the best platform for my growth both on a personal as well as on the professional level. Lastly, I would say, studying at KSOM was one of the best decisions ever I took, and being a part of the KIIT family has given me enough good memories to cherish for a lifetime.

Being from North India I did not have the chance to visit the campus personally before joining KSOM, I only relied on word of mouth reviews, NIRF rankings and placement statistics. Now, looking back at the past 1.5 years I am highly satisfied by the decision, which I took. Campus life promised by KSOM is the best. The campus has excellent infrastructure and is aesthetic with the perfect blend of nature and student-friendly amenities, such as a gym, playing courts, cafe, lush green outfields and state of the art library. When I was doing my research before joining KSOM, I often heard that my seniors joined KSOM purely because of the Faculty. Now, after spending 1.5 Years at KSOM I can certainly vouch for the feelings of my colleagues. KSOM’s Investment in knowledge pays the best dividend possible. KSOM prepares you for tomorrow, by incorporating mentoring programs & business events like Konfidant, Koeducate & Mega HR/Marketing/Finance/Analytics Conclaves, which hosts the best business leaders in the business.

In the past one and a half years, a lot has happened, this started in the first week of July 2019, with my decision to join KIIT School of Management after the completion of engineering from KIIT University itself. In my duration at KSOM, I learnt many things, most importantly, the virtues of trustworthiness and patience. I made many friends in the hostel and the campus as well, and they played their role in making me learn lessons of life as well. The faculties at KSOM are most importantly, knowledgeable and interactive as well. One of the unique features of KIIT University and KIIT School of Management is its mentor-mentee system, where a number of students are grouped together and looked after by a faculty i.e. the mentor. My mentor, Dr. Saptorshi Das guides me as a guardian and has supported me in difficult situations, and helped me further strengthen my communication skills as well. My specializations are Marketing and Analytics, and both of the streams are of my liking, as the choice was left solely to me, that I got my own choice of specializations. The different societies and clubs at KSOM, won’t only give the student a chance to interact with a huge number of people and organize events, but it’d also teach them diplomacy too, as I learnt during the first year. Some of the faculties are so extraordinary, that their way of teaching and the aura they have, make studying an extremely interesting process. Professor Sugato Tripathy is one such faculty, who serves as a strong inspiration to me. Keeping academics and the extra-curricular aside, the beautiful campus itself has a positive vibe attached to it. Concluding, I would like to mention, in my placement at Deloitte, KSOM played a strong role in it. My vote of appreciation and thanks goes out to my parents and our faculty who guided me rightly, and the few of the many friends I had made, who never left my side, regardless of all positives and negatives I faced. Thank you KIIT and KSOM.
