So it is time to tighten up your life jackets that include your knowledge gained and life experiences and embark on this wonderful journey ahead of you! Wishing the very best to all of you.

ABS has been a wonderful budding ground for great talents. Equipped with the kind of experience you have gained in ABS, you are all set to enter & conquer the corporate world again. One of the things that I have learnt while in ABS is that our learning does not end when we pass out of your college; it is a continuous journey. As the classroom learning comes to an end, we start with learning through your experience while in the job. This requires us to be flexible, open to new ideas and most importantly, being honest to ourselves. You will encounter a lot of situations which you may not be experienced in your life. Your education through till now including the rich experience at ABS will provide you with a path towards managing each of these complex situations.
I wish you all the very best for your corporate roles. Make everyday count for yourself.

The years between 1997-1999 are the best 2 years of my life. These two years spent at Amity helped to shape my personality and made me ready for the corporate world. These were the best fun years as well!
I got my first break from the campus itself. I realize now that it was not just studies, but the overall development which took place at Amity which helped me climb the corporate ladder. I thank the institute and the founders from the bottom of my heart.

For you to expect better things in life, you first have to focus on getting better as an individual - carrying an open mind willing to accept, learn and grow by constantly upgrading or
adding to your skill sets/experiences.
I've always believed, Amity University with its massive campus, plethora of activities/facilities/talks/conferences and faculty members that are always happy to help and guide you - sky is the limit.
In the two years, I spent at Amity, I grew exponentially as I learnt from all my brilliant teachers, fellow students and all the opportunities that challenged me and played a crucial role in shaping what I have become today.

For an OUTSTANDING Career, be ready to STAND OUT. Do not make the mistake of being a "me too", starting with your CV to your attitude and your approach, never fall into a template, if you
do you will be safe and an average performer but never an exceptional one.
World is truly VUCA, more so now, what is required is out of box thinking and risk taking to make the most. Think BIG. Think DIFFERENT.

Believe it or not, I was actually in your shoes two decades back, or more, since I am from the Class of 2001. Even though it has been so long, I am sure nothing has changed, and students still encounter the same fears and uncertainty regarding the future. I don't have a crystal ball but I can assure you that all will be OK. At ABS, you all are in the capable hands of some truly remarkable faculty and staff. Just focus on studying hard, and equipping yourself with all the skills needed to succeed in the new normal. Here's wishing you all the best for your future careers.

In order to be an effective and respected manager / leader, it is important to keep introspecting and understanding your own attributes and limitations. The willingness to change and seek continuous self- improvement will help strengthen your own skills and ensure confidence to be an effective leader. Leadership is all about continuous improvement, in order to stay one step ahead of your team, as your team will always look to you for your guidance and advise to take the business to the next level. I am a firm believer that managers who let things happen on its own usually don’t succeed to greater heights but managers who make things happen are the ones who succeed and take higher responsibilities in their organisations. Hence, it is recommended that any new employee or even existing employee should be inquisitive to learn beyond their scope of work, so that they can have a 360 degree perspective to all their thoughts, actions and their approach towards their way forward. Wishing you all the very best as you move on to the next stage of your life and for a bright future.

Always follow management courses from corporate lenses to focus on concepts rather than words. ABS always helped me to give a parallel view from the corporate side and I took advantage of it during the 1st interview and got selected. Keep engaging yourself with corporate studies and compliment your answers with true corporate examples to strengthen your message.
