Miraj Makadiya PGDM 2016-18x

Two roads diverged in a wood and I, I took the one less travelled by, and that has made all the difference". These words from Robert Frost truly describes my experience at IIM Bodh Gaya. IIM BG has given me an invaluable and enriching experience working through case studies and discussions on real-life business problems with professors and peers from various industries. It is the place that has given me an environment of infinite opportunities. I have made memories of a lifetime from this experience and I feel honoured to be a part of the history.

In the beginning, I was very sceptical about joining IIM Bodh Gaya, but the moment I came to this college, I was met with nothing but energy and enthusiasm. It has been a great experience at IIM Bodh Gaya, be it learning new courses, interacting with faculties and guest speakers, engaging with batch mates, getting help from our humble seniors, and enjoying with fun-loving juniors. I found the environment at IIM Bodh Gaya very supportive and conducive to intellectual thinking and learning, which significantly contributed towards my success. To anyone thinking about making into IIM Bodh Gaya, I’d say ‘just go for it’, because it’s well worth it in the end.

I feel proud that I am one of the students of IIM Bodh Gaya. It is a perfect platform to polish one’s skills and calibre and also nurture their talents. The college has made me gain knowledge and solid experiences to issues like business, ethics, personality and professionalism. My doubts and queries were always welcomed by lectures and sometimes lead to healthy discussion which motivated me to develop curiosity and in-depth thinking. Big thanks to all my faculty and friends for this amazing journey at IIM BG.

I started this journey of management education at IIM Bodhgaya with full scepticism as I was getting into a new IIM which is still in the recognition of industry; an IIM whose intelligent students were yet to prove their skills in the corporate world. However, on the other hand, my inner instincts were compelling me to ride on this bumpy path.
It would be of no surprise to say that the journey at IIM Bodh Gaya has uplifted me not only in terms of inculcating management education but also in overall personal development too. There are so many lessons that I learned by remaining in this cloud of wonderful, intellectual students with diverse backgrounds.


I feel blessed to be amidst such intelligent, talented and ideologically diverse peers and to be taught by the esteemed faculty of IIM Calcutta. It is this diffusion of knowledge and ideas which have helped in widening my knowledge and hence aiding me to continuously upgrade myself. It feels immensely satisfying to be amongst peers who are actively contributing towards forging the culture, processes, traditions, and nuances of the institute. Hence, life at IIM Bodh Gaya has become an integral part of my life and I am eagerly looking forward towards another amazing year here.

"IIM Bodh Gaya’s stringent admission policy has always ensured best batch quality. IIMBG’s highly competitive atmosphere has pushed me to my limits and has brought the best out of me. After a year, I’m a transformed individual - intellectually and personally. It wouldn’t be possible if it is not for the IIM Calcutta’s faculty who have been inculcating world-class management education for decades and are best in it.
Being from a middle-class family it was a difficult decision to quit the job to join back to the college. But, it turned out to be the best decision I have made in life."
