The first semester at OCTAVE was full of excitement and knowledge sharing as alumni of reputed Management institutions such as IIM Ahmedabad and SP Jain Institute of Management and Research (SPJIMR) visited the Nagpur campus. The management graduates, now working with leading MNCs, addressed students on various topics like Finance, Consulting, and Marketing etc.
OCTAVians felt privileged to interact with the alumni and learning about the real corporate world through their experiences. It was exciting to hear stories of alumni’s student life at IIMs and SPJIMR. The interaction further got interesting as the graduates discussed various career options available after MBA and provided an insight of the same. A wise advice that came from the guests was that the students should select the right field based on individual interest and how should they develop the interest in order to succeed professionally.
They stressed on importance of non-classroom activities such as student interest clubs, field exposure and doing projects with industries during MBA curriculum.
The alumni were also impressed with the infrastructure and facilities at OCTAVE.
