I am thankful to the Rajagiri faculty and the placement cell for all the efforts taken for training us and developing our skills not just academically, but also grooming us for the corporate world. Having a specialization in Marketing, I was sure that I did not want to settle for a sales profile and I am grateful to the placement cell for helping me shape my career in my area of interest. I have been working in Vox Populi Research, Gurgaon as a Market Researcher since the past 3 years and considering it is my first job, the learning curve has been amazing.

It indeed takes more than a lifespan to describe the placement experience at Rajagiri. Being the placement co-ordinator for 2016-18 paved way to know more about the activities and incessant efforts being put in by the college management and especially the placement committee. Placement at Rajagiri is not just "jobs for all" , but getting the right person at the right place. It has always been the best experience for people who took the right step forward, with the best guidance at Rajagiri. Let more companies plunge in, let more bright ones grab the best of opportunities. Wishing all the very best to the placement committee and the management in upholding the dreams and beliefs of many more yet to come.

Rajagiri, as an institution has really helped me in laying a great foundation for my career. For a large part, who I am today I owe to my B School which taught me to appreciate diversity, be results focused and being practical in my approach. Thanks a lot Rajagiri for instilling that confidence in me which helped me to work with one of the pioneers in the early internet era.

Rajagiri has given me the most valuable skill that has helped me so far- It`s called Confidence. Of Course the top Class facilities and Faculty deserves special mention. The High Quality Industry Expert Panel that the college arranges for the students helped immensely to gain a practical (real-world) exposure. No Wonder Rajagirians are successful across various industries and disciplines. Proud to be a Rajagirian.

Rajagiri is an institution that continues to provide a wonderful but different learning and life experience to its students.For a large majority the time spent as student is truly transformational, at personal level and the way one looks at organizations beyond the bottom line.The uniqueness stems from the pedagogical approach that combines science of management with application orientation, allowing students space to question, think and innovate. The environment nurtured inclusiveness and taught students to be agile when they enter the workforce. The college has defenitely shaped the thinking of organizations across the globe, through alumni who occupy positions of influence and the academic extention activities it undertakes for various societal groups and organizations.The leadership and faculty team at Rajagiri continue to be source of inspiration to many who walked the corridors.

Looking back I owe a lot to this fantastic institution Rajagiri for all the fundamental conceptual strength that rajagiri has helped me pick.I think the key differentiator for rajagiri has been the amount of focus on social networking, being able to build social awareness, the focus on co curricular activities and the amount of Industry exposure Rajagiri has given concurrently with the education.

When a lot of my friends chose to do their MA in Economics, History, and other Social Sciences, I decided to go for Management Programme at Rajagiri knowing that it is a road less travelled. The programme gave me a lot of confidence, an entirely different perspective to life.The is where i learnt my basics of handling people, Human Resource Management. Dedicated Faculty, excellent facilities, good student body, all that made my stay at Rajagiri truly memorable and enjoyable

What stands out in the mind about the days in Rajagiri is the opportunity I got for balanced all round development. To top it the college gave immense opportunity to take up leadership opportunities to hone skills and develop empathy through volunteering opportunities.When I reflect back, the way we were organized those years really represented a microcosm of a very collaborative large team with mentors and guides available to us round the clock.Personally for me I was fortunate to get the opportunity to take up active role in the college union as the Chairman, Arts Club secretary etc. and these experiences helped me later in the organizations as I worked with or led diverse teams.The community life of the college is something which is distinctly unique and even after 25 years I feel I could fall back and speak to my professors and mentors anytime I need some help.
