Essays For Iim Pdf To Jpg

This a sample MBA essay written by one of our clients for IIM Ahmedabad. We’ve included our take on the initial draft and also added the final version, submitted to the school, that helped the client bag an admit to IIMA.
 
This is a guideline and should not be reproduced as it is.
 

Essay Prompt:

 

What do you expect to gain from the PGPX Programme at IIMA? (500 words)

 

Client Profile:

 
– 9 years of experience in the IT industry
– Post-MBA Short-term Goal – Delivery Management
 
Initial Draft:
 
My interests in learning technology, taking ownership, and good performances paved way for my overseas assignments to UK and Canada. I felt a sense of satisfaction and accomplishment when the projects I worked on transformed the client’s business. Exposure to cutting-edge technologies and experience in such exciting projects made me realize my panache for technology consulting. The extensive overseas experience also helped me become more flexible and adapt to people from different cultures quickly.
My goal is to become a Program Manager handling larger projects for an IT Services firm in the short-term and a Senior Leader (Vice President/Country Head) in the long-term. To achieve my goals, I need to gain more business knowledge, sharpen my analytical and decision-making skills and so that I can build value proposition for my company and align myself with my clients’ strategy. I realize that a structured 1-year MBA program is exactly what I need.
 
Placement statistics indicate that IIMA provides ample opportunities to pitch my candidature in front of my dream companies that recruit regularly at IIMA. The average experience of PGPX students is more in line with my experience than any other business school and is the best fit for me. The mandatory courses and a plethora of electives provide an opportunity to learn more about areas that are essential for senior management roles—electives such as Managing and Creating Creativity and Strategic Thinking and Decision Making. I want to be involved actively with the Centre for Retailing, Centre for Electronic Governance and conferences on Advanced Data Analytics, Business Analytics and Intelligence that will facilitate development of my skills and provide me networking opportunities with IT consulting industry leaders.
 
 
Our take on the Initial Draft:
 
This essay would rope in the reader’s attention better if the client starts with a more powerful opening line.
 
My interests in learning technology, taking ownership, and good performances paved way for my overseas assignments to Taipei and Sydney. I felt a sense of satisfaction and accomplishment when the projects I worked on transformed the client’s business. Exposure to cutting-edge technologies and experience in such exciting projects made me realize my panache for technology consulting.
 
The above sentences do not convey precisely what the client has been working on. This paragraph would benefit from some specific detail.
 
The extensive overseas experience also helped me become more flexible and adapt to people from different cultures quickly.
 
My goal is to become a Program Manager handling larger projects for an IT Services firm in the short-term and a Senior Leader (Vice President/Country Head) in the long-term.
 
The previous paragraph talks about a panache for technology consulting. However, the client’s short-term goal is to become a program manager. This point needs to be cleared. The client should also include a sentence about WHY he wants to get into delivery management. He could also mention a couple of companies he’d like to work in.
 
To achieve my goals, I need to gain more business knowledge, sharpen my analytical and decision making skills and so that I can build value proposition for my company and align myself with my clients’ strategy. I realize that a structured 1-year MBA program is exactly what I need.
 
It is not clear why a 1-year MBA program is exactly what he needs. The above sentence either needs to be changed or needs to be qualified with reasons.
 
Placement statistics indicate that IIMA provides ample opportunities to pitch my candidature in front of my dream companies that recruit regularly at IIMA. The average experience of PGPX students is more in line with my experience than any other business school and is the best fit for me.
 
Would the above comparison still be true if the client were to compare it against the other IIMs? If not, he might want to remove this sentence.
 
The mandatory courses and a plethora of electives provide an opportunity to learn more about areas that are essential for senior management roles—electives such as Managing and Creating, Creativity and Strategic Thinking, and Decision Making. I want to be involved actively with the Centre for Retailing, Centre for Electronic Governance and conferences on Advanced Data Analytics, Business Analytics and Intelligence that will facilitate development of my skills and provide me networking opportunities with IT consulting industry leaders.
 
Why are these activities and courses the right ones for the client? The client needs to mention what about his experience and future ambitions make these activities the right ones for him.
 
 

Final Cut (after multiple rounds of reviews and drafts):

 
“Choose a job you love, and you will never have to work a day in your life”.
When I first heard this quote recently, it got me thinking about why I love my job. After some introspection, I realized that I am drawn to the thrill of seamlessly managing the multiple pieces of a solution that delivers value to the client.
 
This has fuelled my short-term ambition of heading the delivery for high-value accounts as part of an IT services organization such as IBM or Accenture, where I can handle multiple high-impact portfolios and build a lasting client relationship. In the long-term, I see myself as a senior leader (Vice President/Country Head) in IT services, where I will have the influencing power to make strategic decisions that can steer my organization to future successes.
 
I started my career as a software developer building web applications for retail clients of Infosys. My interest in quickly ramping up on web technologies paved the way for my overseas assignments to UK and Canada. An exposure to cutting-edge technologies in these assignments helped me build a solid technical base for my career. The overseas experience also helped me become more flexible and adapt to people from different cultures quickly. I felt a sense of immense satisfaction and accomplishment when the projects I worked on transformed the clients’ business.
 
This feeling has become a powerful motivator of my professional career. Though I have performed effectively as a project manager, I believe that I need to gain comprehensive business knowledge, sharpen my analytical skills, and hone a far-reaching, strategic mindset, to accelerate my career and achieve my goals. As a mid-career professional, I realize that a structured 1-year MBA program is exactly what I need, to prepare for senior management roles.
 
I believe that the case-study pedagogy at IIMA will help me connect my professional experiences with the concepts I learn. From perusing the placement statistics of IIMA, I can see that IIMA would provide me with ample opportunities to pitch my candidature to my dream companies. At IIMA, my cohorts will likely have a similar level of work experience as I do – this makes IIMA a very good fit of B-school for me, as I see a lot of value in engaging in discussions with such peers.
 
With the digital future revolving around SMAC (Social Media, Mobility, Analytics and Cloud), I think that it is very essential for me, as a future IT Services leader, to stay abreast of these technologies. At IIMA, I would like to attend conferences on ‘Advanced Data Analytics’ and ‘Business Analytics and Intelligence’ that will facilitate this knowledge and open up networking opportunities with IT Services industry leaders. As a person passionate about delivering high impact projects, I would like to be involved with the Centre for Electronic Governance (CEG) in the impact assessment of e-Governance projects. I look forward whole-heartedly to the IIMA experience to help me achieve a transformation into an effective leader of the future.

The

debate

begins!

With

RBI

governor

Raghuram

Rajan

providing

the

strongest

critique

to

the

government’s

Make

India

strategy

the

fire

to

the

debate

has

been

kindled.

It

is

a

nuanced

statement

made

by

the

RBI

governor

and

his

import

can

be

understood

clearly

as

below:

a)

He

has

said

that

given

the

huge

demand

potential

for

India,

make

for

India,

albeit

in

India,

may

be

a

better

strategy.

b)

Cautioned

against

an

export

led

strategy

but

clarified

that

through

his

‘Make

for

India’

he

is

not

advocating

‘export

pessimism’.

a.

A

strategy

for

export

led

growth

involves

subsidizing

exporters

with

cheap

inputs

as

well

as

an

undervalued

exchange

rate

might

not

work

simply

because

of 

current

conditions

i.

Slow

global

economic

recovery,

especially

in

the

industrial

countries

is

expected

atleast

for

next

5

years.

ii.

Other

emerging

markets

certainly

could

absorb

more,

and

a

regional

focus

for

exports

will

pay

off.

iii.

Another

question

is

if 

the

world

as

a

whole

would

be

able

to

accommodate

another

export

led

China

b.

An

incentive

driven

approach

leads

to

build

up

inefficiencies

in

the

system

and

is

not

self 

sustaining

as

removal

of 

incentives

would

make

them

uncompetitive

once

again.

c.

Moreover,

not

only

are

their

costs

to

provide

incentives

in

the

form

of 

subsidies,

given

the

information

age

the

buyers

are

aware

of 

incentives

and

hence

negotiate

contracts

taking

into

account

the

incentives.

Hence,

a

part

of 

the

incentives

flow

to

foreign

nationals.

c)

Cautioned

against

Import

substitution

strategy

as

it

may

not

work

in

the

current

global

economic

scenario

as

it

as

an

era

of 

Global

Value

Chains

and

we

cannot

be

seen

by

the

world

as

trying

to

curb

imports.

An
