    VAMNICOM is recognized as a brand like other business schools

    Mr. Vishal Mishra is alumni 2003-05, PGDM-ABM. Presently he is working as General Manager at National Bulk Handling Corporation. He believes two years at VAMNICOM were instrumental in shaping his career towards the progressive path. Through the campus placement he got placed at National Agriculture Cooperative Marketing Federation.

    Speaking about his institute he shares, “VAMNICOM being associated with Agriculture Ministry has provided good infrastructure and knowledgeable faculty. Our Director and professors acted as guide to groom us and develop our personalities in a way that we could manage every aspect of professional life in best possible way. Besides we also got the opportunity to be trained under the guest faculty from the institutes like IRMA and IIMA that further broaden our vision on the various subjects.”

    Curriculum – It is designed meticulously giving satisfactory insight into different sectors and sub sectors of agriculture. It is at par with other agri based degree courses offered by other national level business schools. However, Mr. Mishra praises more on agri finances, “We get very good exposure into commodity finance, micro finance, trading and insurance etc. Moreover we get on-field experience through industrial visits and seminar. It comes handy during placement.”

    Summer Project - Students are persuaded and supported to take up summer projects at location other than the home towns. He clarifies, “At home town the individual tend to get little relaxed so for better exposure it is good to move to a new location and attain better learning plus on-field experience.”

    Placement - Mr. Mishra is all praise for VAMNICOM placement cell. He says, “Placement cell is 100% managed by the students’ right from designing the brochure, inviting the companies and organizing the interviews. Of course direction is provided by the Director and faculty but the core work is done by the students themselves. MNC and national level organizations like Amul, NDDB, Axis bank, HDFC visit the campus for recruitment. Placement in such organization assures a prospective career for the students.” Coordinating placements also gives opportunity to interact with alumini. Subsequently students develop the contacts with the people from VAMNICOM family which iis extremely important for future growth.

    Interpersonal Skills - PGDM-ABM being a residential course is boon for the students as for two years every individual bonds with other 150 students. “The batchmates belong to different graduation background and geographical locations of the country hence there is enormous area for learning from one another. Most important we learn interpersonal skills to manage life with heterogeneous crowd,” he highlights.

    Extra Curricular Activities - Other than academics, institute gives immense exposure into extracurricular activities. “Students are encouraged and motivated to organize national level competitions such as quiz, sports and many cultural events. Right from idea generation till the final execution all the activities are managed by 1st year students with assistance from 2nd year students. In this way students are indirectly trained to visualize and manage programs on large scale. We also participated in similar programs conducted by other colleges. It not only trained us on networking with people but also provides confidence to break the ice with the strangers. It is largely helpful in professional life,” he asserts.

    Mr. Mishra concludes, “VAMNICOM is the brand in itself. Industry recognizes the institute for its overall education imparted hence recurring recruitments takes place every year. Life gets much required direction and progress on success path at VAMNICOM!”

    Management and students at VAMNICOM are open to change in alliance with industry trends

Today Mr. Singh is working with HDFC Bank as regional manager managing Maharashtra state. “In those times few colleges were offering degree course in agri business. Amongst the all VAMNICOM was the best institute as it is a Government run college. It certainly shaped my career for good,” he adds.

    Curriculum- VAMNICOM regularly updates the curriculum ensuring it is in accordance with latest subject areas prevailing in the industry. “When I was doing my PGDM-ABM, it was not a very mature course although the institute was striving hard to make it as best possible agri business course! We had only one agri based subject per semester and rest were marketing subjects. However, the course syllabi have evolved fabulously that provides detailed curriculum to the students now as per the requirements of the industry,” he asserts.

    Recruitments- Institute has attained good reputation in the mindset of top recruiters. Mr. Singh elaborates, “Being in HDFC Bank I am observing there are multiple placements in my bank from VAMNICOM. HDFC is the professional organization that closely monitors the performance of the recruits, then after it goes for repeat placements in any institute. Now VAMNICOM has become a key campus for the new recruits because the students are well trained and groomed for professional life.”

    Mr. Singh concludes, “I am in close touch with the institute and visit the campus for delivering the talk on current affairs and industry trends. I have noticed that management and students are always open to transform and adapt to latest changes with respect to professional world. Change in all positive way is happening at VAMNICOM.”
