Along with academics a lot of exposure through co-curricular activities enhanced my confidence and personality.

The journey of a B-School grad does not only end with bagging a great offer, rather it continues till the student enters the corporate world, makes a difference, and help the organization resolve some of its pressing challenges. This is where JAGSoM created the difference for me and my journey at Oracle.
