“A jaunt frilled with emotions” best describes my time at IIM Shillong, which was full of healthy competition, a touchstone of knowledge, a wealth of learning, and profound emotions. This one year has transformed me into a skilled negotiator, a disciplined individual, and an ethical & sound business professional. The curriculum, position of responsibility, competitions, group projects, clubs, presentations and (fun with friends), constant race against time and comfort prepared me for the real fight. This campus in the cloud (IIM Shillong) is just a haven for individuals who keep demanding more from life.
