Student Speak | And now my journey begins…November 7, 2015
This guest post is by Priyanka Pawar who talks about her journey so far and what brought her to Imarticus.
Everyone has regrets that they may have chosen a wrong career path that leads to a dead end. I am here to tell you there are no dead ends and we all get a second chance to turn their life around. Whether you prosper in that chance or fail that is all up to you. I have a small life-turning story to share.
After completing my 12th Science, I had a huge decision to face – whether to go for engineering due to parental pressure or defy all odds and do BMS. After long heated arguments and my own will, I took admission in BMS. After a fun-filled three years, I completed my BMS in 2013 with my best friend. I always got an ‘O’ grade while she was happy with ‘A’ or ‘B; grade. After talking to a few people and doing some research, the idea of being an investment banker intrigued me, and I started dreaming of becoming an investment banker. Then my friend called me after the final result got declared and said:” I’m going to take admission in Imarticus for an Investment Banking course and I will get a job in big investment banks”. I was simply amazed by this.
I spoke to my parents about the course and they disagreed. I had to take admission in MMS. Later, after a few months she called me and said she got a job as an Analyst at Morgan Stanley through Imarticus Learning. I just stood there shocked! My response was “Hey, it’s my first day of college. “

Well after two years, I am an MBA with few months of work experience and the burning desire to be an investment banker, whilst my friend is working with Morgan Stanley and doing her part time MBA. I tried giving interviews but I got rejected. I realized I was lacking knowledge about Finance and Banking.
I convinced my parents to let me study Investment Banking at Imarticus. They reluctantly agreed and I’m so glad I did this course.
I believe it’s never too late to achieve your dream. I am glad that I have an MBA degree, which makes me more strong and positive from the rest of the crowd. This small incident gave me a lifetime experience. I learned the 3 C’s of life: Choices, Chances, and Changes. You must take a chance and choose or your life will never change.
