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.

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.

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!

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.

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.

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.

After my graduation, I was looking for an opportunity to grow and taking admission in KSOM was the best decision I ever took. Here in KSOM, we made a lot of memories, with friendly faculties who inspire you with their professional knowledge, and by sharing their corporate experience they not just finish the course but ensures that you learn the application of the course in the real world. Faculties from the best colleges across the nation and globe make sure that we have the best learning experience and are provided with the best guide to ensure that we have what it takes to survive in the corporate world. In KSOM we have lots of other activities which ensures that by the end of the curriculum we all have a good start to our upcoming beautiful careers. When the whole world was facing issues during this pandemic, and most of the people were losing their jobs, KSOM not just ensured we have regular classes in the online mode but also provided us with opportunities to sit in campus placements in the comfort of our home, I was given one such opportunity too and was able to secure a job in the first company I interviewed for. KSOM ensures that each student is assigned with two mentors, one of the mentor is from college and the other is from the corporate world, both the mentors guide and provides all the help one will need to secure any job, the mentors take their precious time out to guide the students, take their mock interviews and give them the areas to improve. I was able to secure a job because I was on the right path and the continuous help from the faculties and my mentors.

All these grooming sessions, with mentors, and the placement department made me realise what I can do and what to work on. Honestly, it has been a challenging yet very rewarding experience for me. I am more convinced than ever that I made the right decision by choosing KSOM and it has been a privilege to be a part of this esteemed University.

My journey at KSOM started on 5th July 2019. The faculties, mentors, batch mates, hostel & other support staff- in some way or the other, have contributed immensely to my journey. The Faculty members are really helpful and knowledgeable in KSOM. Their teaching style is phenomenal as classes are mostly discussion-oriented and interactive. Case studies, presentations, quizzes, flip classes and discussions made my concepts clearer and, in a way, made me ready for placements from time to time. KSOM’s USP lies in organising Konfidant, Conclaves and Mentor-Mentee Program which gave me a platform to network with corporate leaders. Through the Mentor-Mentee program, I got a lifelong mentor in the form of Mr. Sugato Tripathy, whose guidance has always helped me to succeed in all aspects of life, be it academics, placement preparations, internships and whatnot. Apart from academics, KSOM also provided me with a platform to actively engage in club activities, events, and fests. Being a member of the Marketing Club and Rotaract Club, I will always cherish the learnings, experiences, and relationships that I made in the past 1.5 years. Thank you KSOM for bringing out the true potential in me and pushing me out of my comfort zone. Without such motivation, I could not have bagged my first job at The Digital Fifth. “IT’S TRUE THAT MBA RUNS 24×7 AND KSOM IS THE PERFECT EXAMPLE OF IT”.

The two-year-long journey in KSOM has been the best part of my life. Now I can see a huge difference in myself starting from the day I took admission in the college till date. Those different matrices not only evolve around my academic capabilities but also something beyond personality development. Throughout the journey, my faculty have played a huge role. They made sure that no one gets unnoticed during the course and most importantly after the completion of the course as well. KSOM gave me several platforms to interact with the experienced industry players and these platforms not only gave me the industry knowledge but also gave me the confidence to stand alongside them. KSOM has always encouraged us to create a network and build bonds with the people around us which I believe is really important and useful to us. At the end of this beautiful two-year-long journey, I can proudly say that KSOM has helped me achieve everything that I thought I could never achieve in my life.

I felt myself at home very quickly. KSOM has a very friendly atmosphere and helpful professors who not only teach well but also encourage you to give one's best in life. Classes are interesting and the way of teaching is great. I did a lot of presentations which made me confident in public speaking. I also participated in mock interviews and many group discussions. All these enhanced my personality in a very short period. I really appreciate all the support and love I have got in this period.
My three years stint at KSOM have been excellent and a memory to cherish for a lifetime. KSOM manages to strike the right balance among studies, fun and co-curriculum.

At a certain point of time, all feel down and degraded for ourselves...and this is the time how we evolve and grow as beings, we learn to know ourselves first rather than our professions. That is the time when you need someone to understand that little head of yours and right there you have a faculty, a mentor to help you stay up all the time. MBA from KSOM has helped me to learn and grow not only in my profession but also as a 'kind', as a 'being'. "To grow in the outer world, first you need to grow within".
