A group of 220 students of Delhi Public School Indore, from classes 11th and 12th accompanied by 10 faculty members visited IIM Indore on August 21, 2019. The purpose of their visit was to know about the Institute’s programmes, facilities, placements, and infrastructure and interact with the faculty member and IPM students.
The students got a brief presentation about the Institute by Ms. Ananya Mishra, Media Coordinator & PR Executive; followed by an interactive session with Professor Radha Ladkani, Faculty & Chair, IPM. Professor Ladkani encouraged the students to focus as much on extra-curricular activities as on academics. She also gave answers to the questions raised by the students related to the Institute
This was followed by an interactive talk by Ms. Aradhya Vats, a participant from IPM 5th year. She shared her experience being an IIM Indore student and how she cracked IPMAT and got into the programme. She also shared her experience of life at the campus and encouraged the students to take every decision from the heart, be it professional or personal. The students then got a chance to meet the Director, Professor Himanshu Rai, who wished them luck for all their future endeavours. He also joined the students for a group photograph.
This was followed by a visit to the various areas of the campus, including classrooms, swimming pool, squash court, tennis court, cricket stadium, etc.
Overall the visit was fruitful for the school students who left with a lot of inspiration on their happy faces. The visit was smoothly coordinated by Ms. Ananya Mishra; Mr. Hemant Chaturvedi, Marketing Executive, Industry Interface Office; Ms. Richa Rathod, GDA, PGPMX and Mr. Shiv Kumar, GDA, Admissions Office.
