1. Why did you pick FORE School of Management as your school of choice?
FORE School of Management has a long history of nurturing some of the country's brightest business brains. The institute has always kept up with the ever-changing landscape of management education. My major incentive for joining FORE was the academic eco-system it provided, while also allowing for holistic development and making its students future ready.

1. What is your favourite memory from your time at FORE?
I cannot pinpoint any one memory, in particular, every moment spent at FORE was an incredible experience. My favourite times were perhaps all the cultural festivals and seminars that I attended during my time. I was always an enthusiastic participant in several committees and I enjoyed meeting and interacting with people from all walks of life during such events.

1. What was your first day at FORE like?
I experienced a complex mix of emotions on my first day. I was nervous, excited, determined, and even a little scared as it was the first time I was travelling away from my home town for a long expedition. However, these feelings lasted till the induction, The faculty and the senior batch ensured that we received the warmest welcome and soon, we became part of the FORE family.

1. How was your first day at FORE School of Management?
I distinctly remember my first day at FORE School of Management. I walked through the gates of the prestigious B-school with the vision of becoming a successful business leader. Back in 2001, the idea of being successful in life was based on limited parameters and restricted to conventional professions. The first step towards accomplishing that dream was earning an MBA. However, over my two years at FORE, I got a chance to expand my perspectives.

1. What was your impression of FORE School of Management on your first day?
My first day at FORE School of Management still holds fond memories. I vividly remember the orientation session in the auditorium with my fellow batchmates who were all beaming with excitement and enthusiasm. I found the class of 2000-2002 (Wave IX) very diverse with different academic backgrounds. A few of them who spoke during the orientation were very eloquent and confident. It gave me hope and optimism that this batch would push each other to excel.

1. What was your first reaction when you walked through the gates of FORE?
My feelings when I walked through the gates of FORE were a mixture of excitement, aspirations, nervousness, and realization. Excitement because I had made it to an institute with the legacy of FORE, aspiring because I walked into the campus that would bring me closer to my dream. Nervous about taking one wrong step and what if I lose it all, and realization that this is it; this is my moment and I have to seize it with all I have.

What’s your fondest memory from FORE School of Management?
My fondest memories from FORE are perhaps all the moments I spent with my fellow batch mates. The culture and environment at FORE always motivated us to explore diverse avenues apart from academics. This included participating in various co-curricular clubs, organizing events and fests, hosting seminars and simulations, and mostly just enjoying a memorable camaraderie with all our classmates. The coursework at FORE allowed us to actively indulge in several group projects that helped us create some cherishable bonds with our fellow batch mates. Keeping up with the age-old saying of 'all work and no play makes Jack a dull boy, FORE helped us to explore our interests outside our classrooms and create lifelong friendships.

What is your most memorable experience at FORE School of Management?
There have been several exciting experiences at FORE that are still fresh in my memory. It is almost surreal to realize that it has been so long since graduation. If I have to recall one instance, I think it would be my first case study presentation. I remember the stressful nights before the day of the presentation. However, all the sleeplessness seemed worth it after all the learnings that I still carry with me.

It was the year 2010 when I wrote CAT and after having cleared a few PIs, had to decide which institute to choose from. FORE, with its substantial alumni network and the proximity to the Corporate hub of Gurgaon and Noida, meant that it will not have dearth of exposure. And I was not wrong.

My time at FORE was spent oscillating between 3 things I love a lot - Marketing, Cricket and Food. I had immense learning in Freda ma'am's classes and could never have enough of them. When I look back, working on assignments with people who became my closest friends are memories for a lifetime. FORE also gave me ample opportunity to play Cricket and to compete not just within the college but also outside it. The best 6 days of my life were spent with my fellow teammates competing for 2 years at Chakravyuh, the inter-college sports tournament.

In my opinion, during summer internship, students should try and maximize the gain from the opportunity at hand by being effective and working hard. The corporate world is small and well connected. Leaving good impressions on colleagues and developing cordial relations will influence future growth and references. Students should bear in mind that Summer Internship and the projects they execute will continue to have a bearing on their career for a long time.
